Accordian Card

Morning bloggers! Let's see a show of hands of who is snowed or iced in this morning? :-) Wow! Talk about snow this winter...I think this might be the most snow I've seen since moving to New England 12 years ago. I'm so thankful that my entire family is snug in our home today, hanging in our PJ's, and hopefully crafting later! Today, I'm sharing a project that I'll be demonstrating at an upcoming class at Wholly Scrap! This is our monthly PMS Class (that would be Pizza, Music, and Stamping) and next week it's going to be all about winter and love. This darling project is from a tutorial that I found on Splitcoast (my favorite place for all things crafty!) The covers of the card, which measured 4.25" x 4.25", are cardboard pieces that have been covered with love-inspired paper from Bo Bunny. Once the ribbon is untied, the card folds out to four panels, created by taping together a few pieces of scored cardstock (designer paper is layered on the cardstock). And now you have four little panels that are perfect for decorating. Here's a close up of the left side and I confess that I didn't really stamp a darn thing on this project! This Bo Bunny paper line came with two pages of paper embellies and cut outs that were just perfect for decorating. On the left side I added a small pocket that I stuffed with tickets. And the other panel has a Nestibilities scalloped frame, created by placing a plain oval die inside a scalloped oval and running through the Big Shot. A tiny picture of a bird and flower filled the frame and a 'love' sentiment was punched from the DT and adhered with foam tape. The right side went a bit faster as I simply cut out a few of the decorative panels from the paper and added it to the card with foam tape. I also added a few heart stickers here and there throughout the album. It was really an easy project, especially when I was using the paper for embellishments. This paper was so much fun I just couldn't bring myself to add anything else to it! :-) Enjoy and hope everyone is warm, safe, and cozy today! And if you're in the NH area, contact Wholly Scrap! about my upcoming classes!
