Whimsy & Wonder Cards





I simply love this Whimsy and Wonder Collection.  Today I have two different cards featuring the gorgeous Holographic Designer Series Paper!

Accordion Fold Card:  

You start with a 4 1/14" X 11" piece of cardstock and then score it at 3", 5 1/2", 8", 9 1/2"

Add a 4" x 5/14" DSP piece to 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" piece of cardstock and then add the Basic White 2 3/4" x 4 layer to far right largest panel of the 4 1/4" x 11" card panel.  Add 1/2" x 4" panel to the right side of the Basic White that was just added and add the other DSP panels to decorate the rest of the folded panels. 

Adhere the accordion folded panel to the 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" cardstock with the folded portions extending open to the left.


Stamp Sentiments and an image if you like on 1 3/4" x 2 1/4" layer and adhere it to 2" x 2 1/2" cardstock mat.

Add the sentiment layers to a 1 1/2" x 11" strip of cardstock folded around your card as a belly band.  Add embellishments.  Here I used the Snowflake die cut from the Whimsy and Wonder collection.
