Another Accordion-Fold Card

I'm so enjoying these little accordion-fold cards! It's great how they stand up so nicely on their own, and the size of the panels is very flexible. Today's is short (3") and long (10"), with panels 2.5" wide.

I made it using a small, three-stamp set from Hero Arts and a Kaleidacolor ink pad. The ribbon is knotted and can slip easily back onto the card if you flex the closed accordion into a bow shape (bow as in bow and arrow, not bow as in ribbon...sometimes English is weird).

stamps: Hero Arts...various
ink: Kaleidacolor, Memento brown
paper: Papertrey Ink white
accessories: ribbon, Scor-Pal


  1. Oh my, this is gorgeous! Love the solid images and your use of colour!

  2. Beautiful CAS card, Susan. Love the colors, too.

  3. I was trying to figure out your sentence structure using bow as in bend over in my head! ha...

    I enjoy your simplicity very much, thanks for your information along with your cards.

  4. Such a cute card, and Ilove how the plant goes to mostly green on the inside as it gets well (better that is, not stuck in a big hole in the ground) :)

    1. LOL!!! WELL done! And thanks for noticing the color shift toward green and healthy.

  5. Well, isn't that cute? Love it! Thanks for the inspiration - I know what I'm trying tomorrow!

  6. The multi colored images pop. And I love the sentiment stamped on each panel.

  7. When you are done you can always take a BOW. Bending gracefully, not a ribbon thing! Oh I have missed discussing English, like we used to years ago.

  8. Fresh and bold. Very wonderful!

  9. I'm enjoying your "fancy folds"!

  10. What a great fold. I love the simple knot to hold it closed and the progression of images and colours. I want to try this!
