Fathers Day accordion Tag Fold card

I had. A lot of fun making this style of card. It is not my original design and I am grateful to Linda Higgins who has made a tutorial on her website.She uses both cm and inches in her measurements but I find it confusing switching between the two. 
So here are my measurements in all metric:
  • Take an A4 piece of cardstock and cut it vertically down the middle at 10.5cm - this is the metric standard card width I use all the time. Trim one of these pieces to 9cm width and score this piece in half at 14.8cm. This will be your card front. I have decorated this piece with the tree from Look Up to Father.
  • Score the remaining piece at 1.5cm, (for first Tab - will be glued to inside of card front)  then 4 panels that are 6.5cm wide. i.e. score at 1.5, 8, 14.5, 21, 27.5 , the remaining small section will be your second tab to glue to inside of card back.
  • mark the midpoint of each of the 6.5cm panels and slide the scallop tag topper punch all the way in lining up the midpoint of the top scallop. Punch the four scallop tag tops and trim away the little bridges/flaps that are remaining.
  • cut 4 panels 6cm x 8cm and decorate each of these before adhering to the concertina strip
  • glue the tabs to the inside of the card front.
hope that makes sense, hope you try one too. thanks for looking, Liz

  • I used quite a few different stamp sets, including World of Dreams, Kinda Eclectic, hardwood and Teeny Tiny Sentiments.

 I hope my Dad likes this one!, Liz
