I like fancy fold cards, but seldom take the time to make them. I had made a card like this and held onto it as a “template” so I could remember how to do it again! So I’m not sure if this particular accordion fold has a special name, but I call this an offset accordion fold! There is really nothing fancy about the process, but having an unusual fold does make the card seem kind of fancy. I stamped the Judikins flourishes all over the flourish cardstock to tie in some of the orange from the floral image. I colored the Penny Black tulip with Copic markers and used the larges die in my set for the image, so I had to trim the orange cardstock around it to give it a little frame and a little more weight both visually and to stand up to the folds. This is a birthday card for one of my stamping buddies. Thank you for stopping by today!

How pretty is that? I really love the inking around the border of the die cut. It makes it stand out beautifully!

This is beautiful Yvonne! It’s been a long time since I’ve done an accordian fold card. Thanks for the inspiration. Saw you signed up for the holiday card class as well. I’m excited to get started!
