Monday Mashup #62 - Fancy Fold Concertina Card featuring Flowering Fields Suite...


Fancy Fold Concertina Card featuring Flowering Fields Suite

Good morning and welcome to Monday Mashup #62.  Today I have a Fancy Fold Concertina Card which I originally made last year, you can see the original post here.

It is funny how things come round on the craft roundabout but I have been asked several times over the last couple of weeks for instructions.  At the time of making the card, I didn't make note of measurements so I have recreated it today using the Flowering Fields suite.

As with lots of fancy fold cards the wow bit is hidden inside the card and today's is no exception.  However, you still have an opportunity to make a pretty card front!

When you open up the card, the pretty stuff happens and you can see how the centre weaves its way through the open windows.

Here's another angle so you can see right through.  It is surprisingly easy to make and I have recorded a video to show you how it was made.  I hope you will give it a go.

I used the Stitched Rectangle dies for my window but if you don't have these you can cut the windows by hand or perhaps try a different shape!
