I spotted this style of card in a copy of Crafts Beautiful that had been passed onto me. Caroline Blanchard did an article on card tricks and really liked these small concertina cards. It's a new slant on a tried and trusted design. I could see the possibilities for this shape and guess what I had a class coming up teaching concertina cards. was I lucky or what. Anyway here's a few card I made with Caroline's idea.
Using Hero Arts, birdcage and birds
Sugar Nellie's girls
and flowers stamped using Stampenudous build a flower stamps.
The base card was made by cutting a 7cm strip from an A4 card then folding in 3.
I tend to trim A4 to 27cm when I need to make a tri fold so that I can score every 9cm rather than fiddle on with odd measurements. Of course if you have a score board with tri fold measurements you're sorted.
Sorry the photos look a bit pink.
Thanks Caroline for a great idea
