I've seen, and admired, some accordion cards by Omelliesdesigns and spent a bit of time working out a similar design that would work for my purpose.
|Only the ribbon closure on this Accordion Card gives an indication that there's more to this card than meets the eye!|
I used Rich Razzleberry card stock to make the card and added a panel to the front that I had cut with the Balloon Pop Up Thinlits. I used the matching Balloon Adventures stamp set to silver heat emboss the balloons onto Whisper White cardstock and punched them out with the Balloon Bouquet punch. I stamped the banner and greeting with Rich Razzleberry ink and hand cut the banner.
I hid the edges of the panel with some of the Metallic Ribbon left over from Sale-A-Bration. I adhered the Ruched Ribbon (for the closure) before adding the decorations to the front of the card.
|At first glance, it seems like a normal card when opened|
The inside of the card is decorated with Silver Heat Embossing, Rich Razzleberry ink and the Balloon Adventures stamp set.
|There's quite a wow factor when the card is fully opened to reveal the message!|
Thank you for visiting.
'Til next time!
