Pop Up Accordion Fold Card

 This is one off the accordion fold cards we made at a recent card class.  Once the scoring is done (which is quite simple), it’s just a matter of deciding how you want to decorate it!

A step-by-step video is below as well as cutting dimensions and links to all the products used.

The base of the card is Pear Pizzazz, and the inside mat is Basic White.  The left side of the card is the “accordion” and when the card is opened, the center piece “pops” out.

The accordion panels are all decorated with coordinating DSP.  I used the You’re a Peach DSDP collection.  The center pop up piece is made with a 3 x 3 folded mini card with the outside sentiment stamped on one side and the inside sentiment stamped on the other. Each panel is stamped with sentiments from the Sweet as a Peach stamp set using Pear Pizzazz.  The peach elements were cut out from the Peach Dies.  The peach was sponged with Calypso Coral ink to make realistic peach fuzz!  The image was accented with the White Chalker Marker to give it more dimension.

The last panel is a blank piece of basic white for the sender to write a note and sign the card.

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’!
