Today, I’m excited to show you an eye-catching Fold Out Accordion Fun Fold for the holidays. I had so much fun making this fun fold, that I made several of them to use for my Christmas cards. To make my card, I used items from The Joy of Christmas Suite. Specifically, Joy of Noel and Christmas Classics Bundles and the Joy of Christmas Designer Series Paper. While sold as part of the suite, each of these items are sold separately. You can, also, use what you have and design your own eye-catching Fold Out Accordion Fun Fold.
Fold Out Accordion Fun Fold Card Design
Because this fun fold design really shows off the Designer Series Paper, I chose two different patterns from the Joy of Christmas Designer Series Paper. I went with a plaid in Shaded Spruce for the card base and a greenery and berry print for the accordion fold. Shaded Spruce was used for the card bases while Real Red and Basic White were used for accents.
I used the small square from Christmas Classics Dies to cut the Real Red background for my greeting. Next, I cut “NOEL” from Basic White using the die from Joy of Noel. The Basic White letters were adhered to the Real Red square using Multipurpose Glue. I chose to use Dimensionals to pop-up my greeting. The only embellishment added was a small bow using gold Simply Elegant Trim.
The inside of the card used two panels of Designer Series Paper. I stamped a berry branch on the Basic White Panel using Shaded Spruce and colored the berries with Real Red Stampin’ Blends. The greeting on the inside of my card was from the Very Best Occasions Stamp Set.
In the video, below, you will see to how quickly the Fold Out Accordion Fun Fold comes together. There are tips for cutting and scoring and a second card. Further down in the post, you will see a second card, measurements, supplies and downloadable PDF. Leave me a comment, I would love to know your thoughts on this fun fold!
