Happy Birthday Paul!

I saw this card over a year ago and I finally got around to making one for my hubby’s birthday, which is tomorrow.  This is called a Concertina Card and the original idea is from Julie Japes.  Click here to see her video and more information about how to make this card.




Here are close up photos of the panels.





Ok, so now the box to hold this awesome little card in.  My card stock measures 7-1/2″ square.  Using the Envelope Punch Board, the first score mark is 2-5/8″ and the second it at 4-1/8″.  As you can see int he photo below, you want to use the “wide” edge for your cuts (removing the top tabs and creating slits in the bottom).  Fold up and you have a freakin’ awesome little box.


Here the box is made and it is ready to hold the card.  I added a Velcro dot to hold the flap down.




Please note that the Stampin’ Blendabilities Markers are no longer available as there weer some quality issues with them.  Stampin’ Up! knows that these items were very popular and they are looking into another solution.
