Concertina Pop-Up Card

Hello, today I’m sharing another requested card style.

This fun fold is known as a Concertina Pocket card.

It was requested by quite a few people and I was sent a link to a tutorial by Maria’s Crafting Corner

As always I like to change things a little, and try not to directly copy someone’s design, so I have changed the sizing and made the center section more of a Pop-Up than a pocket.

However, if you want to have pockets, it’s easy to add them.
