Mini Accordion Card Front with Pansy Petals DSP

 Accordion folds are so much fun, especially when they’re miniature!  On this card, I made a small accordion card and used it as the centerpiece on the card front. An instructional video as well as a list of cutting dimensions and products used is at the end of this post.

The card base is Polished ink with a layer of Basic White.

The accordion folds out to show beautiful panels.

The accordion mechanism is mounted on Fresh Freesia card stock with a few pieces of DSP from the Pansy Petals collection.

The inside of the card has a small strip of DSP from the same collection as well as white panels for an inside sentiment and adequate space to write a note.  The inside sentiment is stamped in Polished Pink and is from the Pansy Patch stamp set.

The card is held securely together by this beautiful belly ban.  It is made using Fresh Freesia as the band, a tag made with a small piece of Basic White, stamped with a stamp from the Pansy Patch set in Polished Pink and mounted onto a piece of Soft Succulent.  The tags were die cut using the Stitch So Sweetly die set.  The absolutely gorgeous pansy and leaves were die cut from pieces of DSP from the Pansy Petals DSP.

This is another card made with the same mini accordion.  I used the retired Flowers for Every Occasions DSP pack with card stock from the 2020-2022 In Colors.

If you have any questions about this project or any of  the products used, please let me know.  I’m happy to help!

Happy Stampin’!
