Accordion Card incoporating Giftcard holder & Co-ordinating Box

My project today is this Accordion Card made with the Envelope Punch Board which incoporates a giftcard holder on the reverse.  I have also designed the co-ordinating box.

The Accordion Card itself is double backed - hence the depth of the box to hold it.

I used the beautiful Corner Garden background stamp, stamping the image twice in Pool Party ink onto Whisper White cardstock and then cutting four panels to layer upon each section of the Accordion Card (I used Pool Party cardstock for the basic card).   I also stamped part of the image using my clear Versamark Watermark pad on the front section of the Box and heat embossed the image using White Stampin Emboss powder.

I die cut the butterfly from my Bold Butterfly framelit dies twice (one for the card and one for the box).

Here are the instructions for the Card.

Cardstock measure 7 3/4 x 10 inches.   Score @ 2 1/2,  5,   7 1/2 on the long side

Score at 3 1/2 inches on the short side

Place the talles section in the Envelope Punch Board as indicated and punch.

Do the same on each of the remaining score lines,

Apply double sided tape only to the three sections  as indicated with the green highlighter, leaving one section completely clear.  This is the section that will hold the Giftcard.

Punch half a circle from the edge of the section above.  I used my 1 1/2 inch circle punch.

Fold and assemble the card.
Decorate as you wish, layering with decorated panels measuring 3/8 x  3  3/4 inches.

These are the instructions for the Box:-

Cardstock measures 7 1/2 by 7 inches.   Score @ 1/2,  3/8,  5  5/8  (not  5  3/8 as per the photo !!!!)      and 6  1/2 on the short side.

Score @ 7/8,  3 1/2,  4 3/8 and 7 inches on the long side.

Cut out the sections hatched in green as above.

Cut small wedges as shown above.  Apply double-sided tape to the section edged in green shown above.

Assemble as per image above.

Decorate as you wish.

  2. Thank you so much Christine x Means very much to me that you like it x

  3. Hey Linda - Loved your creations so much & tried to re-create them. I've done something wrong - the box is too long on one end and the card is too long for the box. Help!
    Love all your videos - keep 'em coming!
    Hugs - Janet

    1. Janet - What can I say - I boobed. So sorry. I have corrected the measurements for the box. I cannot offer an explanation other than I should have double checked. Please accept my sincerest apologies. xx

    2. Hi Linda - No worries!! Thanks for your help. Off now to start again!!
      Hugs - Janet

  4. Hi Linda! Love your projects. I found the same difficulty as the comment before me. I think I figured out the problem. One of the score lines on the short side is incorrect. So it should read :Score on the short side at 1/2, 1 3/8, 5 5/8, 6 1/2. The tutorial has 5 3/8 which makes all the difference with the card fitting in the box. Hope this helps.

    1. Barbara - Again, as with Janet above, please accept my apologies and my grateful thanks to you for pointing this out. Much appreciated xx That was very kind of you x

  5. Your very welcome. This is a beautiful project! Thank you for sharing it. xx
