Fun fold Friday Friends are like Seashells

 The sunny if finally shining here in my part of the world and playing with the Friends are like Seashells stamps and the Sand and Sea suite of products has made me think of beautiful days spent by the sea with my family and friends.  How does this relate to my project for today you may ask well.....

...I have created a concertina card that has lot's of surfaces to decorate that would also make a great mini album or brag book!!

The version I'm sharing here has a gift card holder on a pocket but you could use it for journaling or extra photos if you wished to.

So the basic card base requires 2 parts. Part 1 measures 14.85cm x 29.7cm and is scored at 9.5cm and 19.5cm. Part 2 measures 14.85xm x 20.5cm and is scored at 10.5cm.

Now take part one and place it landscape in front of you with the smallest panel, the one that measures 9.5cm, on the left hand side. Next you take panel 2 and place the largest panel, it measures 10.5cm, over the 3rd panel of part 1, the right hand one as you look at it. There is a slight gap on the reverse. But not to worry pattern paper can cover it 😉.

That is the basis of your project! 

Now decorate as desired and fold up. The folds staring from the left hand side are mountain,  valley and valley.
