Concertina fold

This was a fun card to make. Here is a list of the products I used to create it:

Cardstock: Blackberry Bliss
                  Naturals White
                  So Saffron
Inks: Blackberry Bliss
                  Hello Honey
                  Sahara Sand
Moonlight Designer Series Paper Stack (133701)
Stamp Sets: Kinda Eclectic (wood-135347, clear-135350)
                  Happy Harmony (retired)
Beautiful Wings thinlit (118138)

The base of the card is created with Blackberry Bliss, 10"x 3 1/2", scored at 5".
Stamp on the Naturals White with the Kinda Eclectic stamp set. (4 1/4"x 2 3/4") matted with Blackberry Bliss (4 3/8" x 2 7/8"), So Saffron (4 5/8" x 3 1/8"), Naturals White (4 3/4" x 3 1/4"). Place this on the front cover and embellish butterflies, cut from the thinlit die. Stamp the sentiment  in Blackberry Bliss on Naturals White, matted with Blackberry Bliss and attached to the cover with dimensionals (104430). Don't forget to add a small butterfly to this piece, too.

For the inside fun, you will need a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock cut at 11" x 4 1/2", scored at
2 1/2", 5", and 7 1/2". Cut the top 1" of each panel to create a tag top (If you have the tag topper punch, this works great! I used a retired corner punch on my example, and cut away the excess). On the first and third panels, mat a piece of the dsp (2 3/8"x 3 1/4") with So Saffron (2 1/4"x 3 3/8"). Use the same measurements to place Naturals White, stamped and matted with So Saffron. Glue or tape the first and last panels to the card base. Add ribbon to your tag tops and that is it!

NOTE: You could add 1/2" to each end of the inside to attach the card for more flare AND/OR decorate the inside of the base card with dsp.

I hope you enjoyed this project and will give it a try!

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!
