Striking Multi-Step Accordion Card

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing another showstopper card, this Multi-Step Accordion Card will certainly stand out from all the rest!

When the recipient opens the card, the accordion section pops out!

There’s a lot of space inside this card for you to decorate and personalise.

I’ve kept the very back of the card for my written message.
