NEW SIZE! Expanding Accordion Cards

Hi friends, about a month ago I shared the 5 x 7 Expanding Accordion Card, which many of you have loved.

I then received quite a few comments and messages asking for me to do a 6 x 6 version, so here it is.

I used the adorable Bluebells and Buttercups papers by Craft Consortium to decorate these.

This is a huge card, hence why I called it a showstopper! so it will need a box envelope. I have 2 sizes and 2 styles in my box envelope tutorial here.

You can have any sentiments you like on here and it’s easy to reduce he size or make even bigger if you wish.


Craft Consortium Bluebells & Buttercups collection available here.

Glossy Accents available here.

Chunky Alphabet die set available here.


2 pieces of 6′ x 12′ card for the front and back.

Score along the 12′ side at 6, 6.3/4, 7.1/2, 8.1/4, 9, 9.3/4, 10.1/2 & 11.1/4

1 piece of 6′ x 3′ card for the extender.

Score along the 3′ side at 3/4′, 1.1/2 & 2.1/4

18 pieces of 2′ x 2.3/4 card for the panels

18 pieces of 1.3/4 x 2.1/2 pattern paper for the panels.

You can write your message inside the card, or on the back as I have.

I love the cute toppers that come in the collection.
