Papertake Challenge-Accordian Card

This week at Papertake Challenge is a tutorial for an Accordian card. Great tutorial and it is a unusual card style(for me atleast). But it was kinda fun to make!

Since the panels are kinda skinny I had to pick a narrow stamp. I happen to have "Cool Cat" from Stampin Up on my table. I had bought them from Jennifer-Glitter in My Hair and hadn't used them yet so I grabbed them! I didn't want to do the usual black cat so I did a blue cat. The ink I used is called Moonstruck from Close to my Heart. I dotted her collar with silver stickles glitter glue. Attached a ribbon with brads to keep the card closed.


I didn't really want to do cardstock on each of the panels so I just used a similar flower stamp and stamped it with the flowers all thru the middle. I didn't do anything else to them...I am thinking about coloring them in with the same colors as the design paper. Not sure and didn't want to mess it up. What do you think..color or no color?!


Materials Used: Stamps-Stampin Up, Studio G. Ink-Close to my Heart. Cardstock-DCWV.
