Dainty Flowers Accordion Fold Card

 Hi Everyone,

Today I have been playing with the Dainty Flowers designer series papers and wanted to make the most of them so thought I would make an Accordion Fold card for my Sister's birthday. The Dainty Flowers dsp is FREE with a £45 purchase from any of the catalogues during Saleabration 2023.


1 piece of mossy meadow card stock 6" x 11 3/4" (full length of A4), 1 piece 6" x 11"
1 piece of basic white 5 " x 3 ", scrap for the sentiment
1 piece of dsp 5 3/4" x 3 5/8", 2 pieces 5 3/4" x 3 1/4", 2 pieces 5 3/4" x 2 3/4", 2 pieces 5 3/4" x 2 1/4"
Wildflower Path stamp set
Mossy Meadow ink
Fresh Freesia ink
Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine
Stylish Shapes dies
Brushed Brass Butterflies
Simply Scored
Bone Folder
Take Your Pick Tool
Multipurpose adhesive


Put the longest piece of card stock onto the simply scored and score at 3/4", 4 1/4" and 7 3/4".

Put the other piece in and score at 2 1/2", 5" and 8".

Fold and burnish all the score lines.

Attach the two pieces of card stock together with the 3/4" tab on the underneath and the smallest folds to the front and the larger ones to the back.  Refold the score lines to make sure that they now fall into the accordion fold.

I used the Dainty Flowers dsp and wanted to show off lots of different patterns.  Adhere all the dsp layers down.  

I stamped some flowers from the Wildflower Path on the remaining piece of basic white and added to the end panel to write my message.

Stamp the sentiment on a scrap of white and die cut using the banner from the Stylish Shapes dies and adhere this across the front panel using dimensionals.

Add some butterflies and the card is complete, I do hope that you like it and will give it a try.
