How to make an Accordion Fold card…

I was lucky enough to receive lots of fabulous swaps while I was away in Vienna, but one caught my eye as soon as I saw it, because it’s such a fab fun fold card, so I am here today to show you how to make an Accordion Fold card using the upcoming By the Bay suite of products, available for customers to purchase from the 4th Jan 2023.

I actually showed how to make the base of this card over on my YouTube live video this week, but what with also showing the new products that I had ordered I didn’t quite get time to finish it, so thought I would update you with all the pictures here too.

If you want to re-create this Accordion Fold Card you will need two pieces of Thick Basic White cardstock, one measuring 14.85cm x 29.7cm and one measuring 10.5cm x 19.7cm. The measurements for the patterned paper are in the video, just click on the link below to have a watch.

Here are some more photos of the finished project, so you can have a good look from lots of different angles – I even decorated the front when it is closed and make a cute tie closure using some gorgeous new ribbon.

I had a lot of fun making this Accordion fold card, and hope that you have a go at making it yourself, using whatever stamps, dies and papers that you have in your stash.

The original card was given to me by the lovely Gill Moore from 2 Big Girls Crafting, so thanks go to her for the inspiration here. I do love swapping because I always get a ton of ideas, and am always keen to get creating when I get home.

I’ll be back over on YouTube this coming Thursday (1st December) at 8pm UK time if you would like to come and say hi, it would be great to see you virtually.

Until then, Happy Stamping! xx

Bookings are now open for my next Stampin’ Blends Course, starting on Sunday 5th February 2023, with four zoom classes running over several months (to give you plenty of time to practice in between). All of the classes are recorded into a Private Facebook Group too, so you can watch and rewatch as many times as you like. The course also includes a 17 page written course guide, with accompanying worksheets.

There are two options for this course, a product based option (available UK only) and an online only option (available WORLDWIDE). The online only version is £70 and the product based version is £180 – for which you get access to the whole course, the course guide, £180 worth of product (4 stamp sets and 21 Stampin’ Blends) Sale-A-Bration goodies and free postage too.

Because you also get your choice of 4 level one Sale-A-Bration items, this option is a real bargain if you love Stampin’ Up! products, and as always you are free to swap out for other product of your choice.
