Photo accordian book card


Close up


I made this card for my sister's 40th birthday last week. As she was a child of the seventies I wanted to go for a retro look using retro papers and flowers and I wanted to use black and white photos of her to complete the look so I converted them from colour on my PC. I made the card itself by sticking together 3 normal cards to give 6 surfaces to decorate. I used my regular daisy punch for all the flowers and used my nesties and wingo zingo alphabet for the message on the back. I tied the whole thing together with a gold sheer ribbon. I was quite chuffed with how it turned out and thought it really had a seventies vibe to it and I think my sis was really pleased with it!

Crafty stash used: 3 card blanks; Photographs; Paper- Retro stack (DCWV); Assorted cardstock; Regular daisy punch; Nestabilities; Wingo Zingo alphabet (Sizzix); Basic alphabet (Xyron); Assorted gems (Lakeland); Gold sheer ribbon (recycled)

Hi Steph,
You should be chuffed at how it turned it, it's fab.
Love the seventies retro feel.
I'm sure your sister will treasure it.
