Welcome to my Merry Christmas Monday series! I am so excited about my first project that I have to share with all of you. It is called an accordion fold card. We made a smaller version of this card in my creative fold class last week. It was a big hit!

When I started this project I wanted to use a stamp set I hadn't used before. I looked at my stamps and kept going back to Tidings & Trimmings, so that is what I used. This was one of my first stamp sets I bought for the holiday season, but kept putting it off to the side. I have a feeling you are going to be seeing this stamp set more.

The above picture is of the front of the card that I made using the Stitched So Sweetly dies, Christmas Tidings dies, the beautiful Tidings of Christmas designer series paper and Champagne rhinestones.

For the panel on the left hand side I used the beautiful Merriest Frames Hybrid embossing folder. What is unique about this embossing folder is that it comes with dies! Guess what else is so awesome?! You can cut and emboss at the same time!!! That is how I made the Evening Evergreen layer. The flowers were cut out using the dies that are also included with this embossing folder.

For this panel I used the Christmas Trimmings dies and Copper Foil Sheets. I do have a tip for you if you use these dies. For the intricate dies (copper stars), I highly recommend that you use the Adhesive Sheets. It makes it so easy to adhere them to the solid stars.

On the back of the card I put this so you would have a place to write. I embellished it with Holly cut from the Christmas Trimmings dies and used Red Rhinestones for the berries.

This is what the card looks like when it is folded up and bow is tied. I used the gorgeous Evening Evergreen Chevron ribbon from the annual catalog.

This is definitely a card that you could use as a decoration in your home. I wanted to make a box to put this in, as I don't think it would fit in any envelope, but with Halloween yesterday and other commitments, I didn't get a chance to make it.

This is a great card, but where are the directions on how to make it? or a video tutorial?
thanks!

Joyce Whitman

Hi Sam! I am happy you like my card. I did not make a video for this card, but you can go on You Tube and search accordion cards and you will find a lot of videos explaining how to make it.

Laurie Bradshaw

I was most interested for directions for the smaller pages? I love your project!
