Concertina Flip 'N Fold

  I've got the "Fold Bug" and it's all The Stampsmith's doing! The challenge for March is Flip 'N Fold.
  This is called the Concertina or Accordion Fold. The first 2 ladies are from The Stampsmith Flappers #1 set, and the third one is from the Flappers #3 set. All were stamped on glossy cs with Color Box Archival Dye "Mudslide" ink.
  The base of the card is some double sided DP called, "You & Me" from KaiserKraft's "Sweet Nothings Collection". All sentiment stamps & butterfly stamps are Tim Holtz. The "L is for Love" stamp is Stampin' Up!. The heart is done the old fashion way; cut out free hand from a scrap of DP paper, then inked with a script stamp. Both the "L" stamp and heart were spritzed with some Tsukineko Pssst! Sheer Shimmer Sparkle Spritz. Flower on the first panel is from Michaels. Edge punch at top is Martha Stewart Eyelet punch. I added the last panel as I didn't want the last image to be exposed. Added some lace and DP to it. Used DI Tattered Rose on some Hug Snug Seam Binding. Love that stuff!
 Here are some closeups:



This is the back. I attached the ribbon under a piece of paper with my stamp on it.

This is the front when it's all tied up.

Hope you give this fold a try. Lots of how-to videos on YouTube. Also, check out The Stampsmith Store. You will love these stamps!



I am entering this card into the following challenges:
1. Gingersnap Creations: GC141 Chestnut Challenge Granny's Photo Album
2. The Stamp Man: Vintage

Have a great week! Thanks for stopping by. Muchly appreciated!
Get Inky!
