Accordion Cards

 This week we are looking at Accordion cards, I have had fun with this one!


I am rather fond of house stamps and this is a Stampendous Perfectly Clear set called Family Home is my latest favourite.


First I stamped out several of each house, and coloured them with Sakura Pencils,


They are roughly coloured as that fits the style of the stamp (that is my excuse and I am sticking to it) and also roughly cut out.


I cut a piece of 12 x 12 in half and scored it and folded it at 3 – 6 and 9 inches. I like to use my Woodware trimmer and the scoring blade for scoring my cards. I have then taped the 2 pieces of card together.


I used Picasso to add the sky, simply with a stencil brush and a blue pad.


this I repeated all along the card.


then lined up my houses along my road.


I added ribbon to the card so that I could close it up. I have just put double sided tape under it, i think that it looks quite neat.


and the ribbon just hangs out of the way  when the card is on display!

Thanks for visiting see you soon!
