This is another fun fold card I learned how to make in the class I took last month. It is called a Fun Fold Accoridan card designed by another Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, Sharon Armstrong. This is what the card looks like opened up:
Isn’t that fun?!
Below is a list of card stock and Designer Series Paper with the measurements you will need to make this card:
- An A2 card base folded in portrait 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ ( I used Blushing Bride)
- Same Colored Cardstock as your base (I used Blushing Bride):
a. 1″ x 11″
b. 1 ½” x 3”
c. 4 1/4″ x 11”
- Designer Series Paper (DSP) (I used Dainty Flowers):
- a. 4″ x 5 1/4″
- b. 2 1/4″ X 4″
- c. 2 1/4″ X 4″
- d. 1 1/4″ X 4″
- e. 1 1/4″ X 4″
- f. 3″ x 4″
- g. an extra piece of DSP to use for the sentiment on the belly bandFirst, adhere the piece 4” x 5 ¼” DSP to the front of your card base.Then take the colored cardstock that measures 4 1/4″ x 11″ and score at 3″, 5 1/2″, 8″, and 9 1/2″. Fold back and forth to create an accordion fold. Use a Bone Folder to give good creases. Adhere the 3″ x 4″ piece of DSP to the last panel. Then, adhere all other DSP pieces to the 4 ¼” x 11” accordion card with adhesive.
Adhere your accordion piece to the center of the front of the card. I used Tear & Tape for this because it holds well. You can also use Multipurpose glue.
Take the 1” x 11” cardstock and wrap it around the entire card creating a belly band with the seam in the front and tape it together. I used Tear & Tape for this too.
Punch out a section of your DSP for the sentiment. I used the Everyday Label Punch. Stamp sentiment on it from the Dainty Delight stamp set and adhere it to the belly band.
That is it. It looks a lot more complicated than it really is. If you have any questions feel free to contact me.
Susan this a great fold . Beautiful card.
So fun! This is on my list of “try this one! Blushing Bride is my favorite pink, and the DSP is perfect. Love it!
