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.|
These are the instructions for the Box:-
|Cardstock measures 7 1/2 by 7 inches. Score @ 1/2, 1 3/8, 5 5/8 (not 5 3/8 as per the photo !!!!) and 6 1/2 on the short side.|
