Create an accordion style folded card

My wife's grandmother, we call her Mamaw, recently turned 96.  I wanted to create a card that she would love and cherish.  I also wanted to see the delight in her eyes when she opened a card that was almost if not longer than her arm span.  Then I came up with the idea to make a card with exactly 96 candles.

I decided I wanted to use my Stampin' Up! stamparatus to help me make the card quickly so I didnt have to worry about the stamp panels being different…. I wanted them to have the same uniform look.  I also videoed me doing the card so you could make one for yourself if you wanted.  It wasn't hard after I figured out all of the measurements.    At the bottom of this email you will find a link to the FREE PDF tutorial that I include all of the dimensions.

This is a 4 part video series.  If I made it all in one video… I think you would become bored, so I broke it down in to smaller pieces. After the video you will find a link to the next blog post where I show the next video.

Check out blog post 2 of 4 where I use the Simply Scored board to make the folded panels of the card base.    

Check out blog post 3 of 4 where I use the Tear and Tape to adhere panels of the card.
