Hi friends, last week I showed you how to make these very pretty Slimline Concertina Cards using supplies from the latest Papercraft Society Kit 11
Slimline cards seem to be very popular again so I thought I would make these Concertina cards in the slimline style.
I first made these during a Facebook Live. I showed you how to make 2 cards from 1 piece of 12 x 12 card and then a smaller version for those of you who have A4 or Letter paper sized card.
I used supplies from my latest Papercraft Society kit 11
These cards will fold flat and fit into a shop-bought DL size card or you can make a 4 x 8 sized envelope using your envelope punch boards.
You have plenty of room on the back to stamp and write your message.

I love all of the flowers and the button detail in the centres.
I finished the cards with some glossy accents over the berries and Nuvo Drops in the centre of the flowers.
