Stunning Accordion Fan Fold Card

Hi everyone, today I’m sharing a card style I saw on Pinterest. A lady called Jackie shared one she had made, there were no instructions, links etc just the photo.

I believe she used a die, so I had a play around and came up with these similar ones.

I never make Art Deco-style cards, but I did have an Art Deco paper pad by Textures that was perfect!

I love the side profile of this style, it all folds flat and will fit in a 5 x 7 envelope.

I heat-embossed the bird and popped it up on some foam.
