Accordion Card - Shabby Chic

Hey All,

Here I am with another creation... It's a shabby Chic style card.. Oh I am so loving the style.. Soft and subtle..
I made this on behalf of my team for our client manager. Team wanted some space to write personal wishes for her.. So I thought of making an accordion style card..Since we are 4 so 4 panels were enough..

Oh here it is.. :)

*** Picture heavy post ***


I made a matching bag to keep the card in..


Lots of die cutting was done to make this card..

Another view..

I spent a huge amount of time to figure out the way to stick circles together to make accordion...


These flowers are from Itsy Bitsy.. Papers are DCWV... Distressed the circumference with distress ink and did some faux stictching to enhance the look..

Another view..

I hope you liked it.. Drop me an email if you have any query regarding the technique/products used..

Entering into following challenges:

1. Lulupu - The Craft Launge - Shabby Chic Shaped Cards
2. Crafter's Corner India - Die-cuts/Punching with Stamping
3. PennyBlack at allsorts - Any die will do
4. Totally Gorjuss - Don't be square!
5. Drunken stampers - Not too shabby

Have a good day!
