Concertina Fold Panel Card - Video Tutorial

Today I'm sharing two Videos. If you are interested in the Box only, scroll right down past the Measurements for the card and you will find the details :o)

I think this is one of my favourite projects for this year! I've thoroughly enjoyed creating these cards.

Both cards shown in this post use the Brightly Gleaming Specialty Designer Series paper - which I am in love with. It's just so beautiful. Each sheet has Copper foiling on one side and that makes it so special and luxurious!

I used the coordinating Christmas Gleaming stamp set to decorate the cards. The colour combination used here is Night of Navy, Copper and Very Vanilla.

You do need 12" paper to complete this project. I used the beautiful Copper Star sheet for the entire card. The centre concertina piece is the pattern on the reverse of it.

This is a top view of the card. This version of it is very dimensional, which is why I made a box to fit the card. Closed the card measures 6" x 5".

I added a panel on the reverse of the card where you can write your message.

This is the card and box that I made in the Videos. I used another beautiful sheet of paper, this time in Pretty Peacock and Copper. This one has to be my favourite. 

When creating it, I did make a pretty big mistake. Instead of using Pretty Peacock ink for the stamping, for some reason I used Night of Navy again! I've corrected it now though and am much happier with the project :o)

Look at that Copper shine! It's just lovely! Until this paper pack came along I wasn't a fan of Copper, but that has definitely changed now. 

The colour combination I used for this card is Pretty Peacock, Copper and Very Vanilla ....

In the Video you will see me use Night of Navy ink. It wasn't worth re-doing it for that one mistake :o)

Here is the Video for the Card ...
