Accordion Style Card.

Another new card shape.
Accordion style card.
I found an excellent tutorial
I'm struggling with another bout of cystitis
so showing a card I made earlier for a swap. 
This is the 2nd card that I made
using stickers for my partner Merry in Oz.
Design paper is by Raspberry Road and is from 
their digital paper collection ' Ancient Page'
I used my Xcut   nesting dies 'Square Parenthesis'
for the page shapes.
Made a matching envelope which you can just see.
Stickers are by Paper Mania.
Pearls and ribbon from my stash.
The pages are actually an oddment of very pale green card
but it is showing as off white in photos.
I made a pocket from brown card for a tag on the 2nd page.
Last pages with more sticker decoration.
The card folds flat  and is tied with a ribbon bow.

  6. Really fabulous card Mrs A! I only just commented to AJ how using a shaped square die in sort of diamond fashion looks so good, and here you are doing the same thing!
