Partial Concertina fold

I saw a sample of this fold on Crafter's Companion (Upright Step). It was a larger card and used their board to make it. So, of course, I had to figure out how to make one using our score board and in the A2 size (4 1/4 x 5 1/2). So here is my version of it.

The card base starts with a piece of Tempting Turquoise, 8 1/2 x 5 1/2

Place it in the trimmer and cut a slit 1 1/2" from the long side and from 1 3/4 to 7 1/2" marks.

Place the long side to the top of the score board and score down to the slit at 1 3/4, (this should be the beginning of the cut), 3 1/2, 5, 6 1/2, and 7 1/2. Flip the card and score down the middle (4 1/4) to the cut. Fold and crease all of the score lines. This will give you an accordion fold at the top with the right edges all lining up.

For the mats, you will need from Island Indigo:

4x 1 3/8
1 1/8 x 1 3/8
7/8 x 1 3/8
3 3/4 x 4
2 1/2 x 4

This picture shows the placement of the smaller pieces, with the card open and the back facing you.

From DSP:

3 7/8 x 1 1/4
1 1/4 square
3/4 x 1 1/4
3 1/2 x 3 3/4
2 3/8 x 3 7/8

I used a deleted envelope paper. Do you like the marbled look? You can create your own with the marbled background stamp. I would recommend stamping it off on scratch paper, then on whisper white for a softer look. Here is a trick that I learned from Connie Steward: Lie your stamp facing up, ink it, lie a piece of cardstock on top of it, then a piece of copy/scratch paper and rub over the image. The scrap will keep ink off of you and you can get a great full image!

Here is the placement of the DSP pieces, showing the cover.

I stamped a sentiment in black for the Sending Thoughts set. The image is from the retired Butterfly Basics set. It is stamped in Momento Black on Whisper White cardstock and colored with Stampin Blends. After cutting it out with the paper snips, I placed on the card with dimensionals.

For the inside of the card I placed a Island Indigo mat, then Whisper White, with another sentiment stamped in Island Indigo ink.

I hope you give this one a try! Thanks so much for stopping by!!
