Christmas Accordion Tag card

Hello! I hope your day is going well and welcome to All Things Beautiful
Today's post is a masculine fancy fold card using a winter theme. This fold is called a Accordion Tag fold card. You can find the tutorial on how to make this card under my tutorial tab here.
For this card you make a long accordion folded piece of cardstock in which you can hand write or stamp messages/images.

Here is a picture of the card front and complementing envelope.

 I alternated patterned paper and blank cardstock pieces for stamping

I also coordinated theinside of the card to match the card front and envelope.


Hope you enjoyed my post and try the Accordion tag Fold card for yourself. See the products used below.

Be Truely Glad

Hi There!
I hope your week is going well.
Today's post features masking and stenciling with inks
I have Youtube tutorials links under my tutorial tab for both techniques. You can find them here.


For this card i masked off a circle of the white cardstock and then covered it with my stencil to ink.
I also inked the envelope using the same stencil and distress inks.



I cut down the card front panel and used the scraps as embellishments for the inside. I also stenciled the inside of the card with a pale gray ink just for a softer effect.

With the bleaching technique, depending on the type of cardstock you use you will achieve a variety of looks.


Here is a close up of the bleaching on the stamped flowers. The bleach revealed this wonderful teal color.
