Where have the years gone…..
My No:3 Son (out of 4) will soon be sitting his HSC, Year 12. It only seems like yesterday that he started in Kindergarten.
Here he is with his 2 older brothers about to enter the school gates all those years ago.
This year has been a big year for him….as he has been the 2017 School Captain ( one more week left ).
Last Friday he asked me if I was able to make a card for the Year 12 students to give to their Year Adviser.
I was so pleased he asked me and its a card I have really enjoyed making.
So as there is approx 90 students…..I needed a large card, or a card with pages. So I decided on an Accordion Fold Card, you can make these card as large or long as you need as long as you make in odd numbers. Its a card that is made up of squares joined together on diagonal corners…this will all be explained through the pictures and video.
Card size 15 x 15 cm ( 6 x 6″ )
I also made an envelope to go with the card taking into account of the card thickness.
The accordion part of the card is made from 3 sheets of 30 x 30 cm Whisper White Cardstock 124302 and front and back covers are in Night of Navy Cardstock 106577. I decorated the card with the delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper 144137 and the greeting and daisy I stamped using the Daisy Delight Bundle 145361 (Stamp and Daisy punch)
The daisy I stamped in Smoky Slate 131179 and sponged in Calypso Coral 126983…..my sponge had some residue Daffodil Delight 126944 so the daisies have this beautiful two tone effect. The leaves are stamped in Old Olive126953 and then lightly sponged and fussy cut around, leaving a small boarder around the leaf. The flower centers on the card from is a Faceted Gem Clear 144142 and the inside of card I stamped the flower center from the stamps in Daffodil Delight and adhered with a Dimenstional.
I have added some Wink of Stella Clear 141897 to both daisy’s for that something extra.
I have made a Video to show how the cardstock is folder and joined…I hope you find this helpful.
