Another Accordion fold pocket card with Painted Lavender from SU

I love this card style and have made it several times with different papers. Yesterday I had an enjoyable day with my fellow Stampin'Up demo team and this is the card I demoed. I did step up my previous card on the blog by adding a mat layer and used my favourite Tailor-made tags in the pocket. I have also used the pocket to hold a gift card which works well for many occasions. Painted Lavender is one of my favourite Suites at the moment but I have seen some new ones in the new Catalogue that you can order in  May and these might just give it a fight for top place!! 

You can pop back to my previous post for the simpler version and also see the Tutorial below. 

Recipe for the Painted Lavender Card version


1.       Base: Highland Heather: 5 3/4” x 11” scored @ 4 ¼”, 5 ½” and 6 ¾” (use off-cut for due cutting tag)

2.       Crumb cake: 4 x 5 ½  cut diagonally in 2

3.       Basic White: 3 ¾ x 5 ¼ cut diagonally in 2

4.       Pretty Peacock 4 x 5 ½


5.       3 7/8 x 5 3/8

6.       3 ¾ x 5 ¼ - if you use paper with non-directional design on reverse no wastage. If not, you will need 2 pieces this size.

Optional -2 strips 1” x 5 1/2 to cover the accordion fold inside. I chose not to add DSP here as there was additional thickness with the extra mat layers

This beautiful collection is retiring in its present bundled format; the sentiments are only available while stock lasts so if you like this and want to get the 10% bundled savings, get it NOW! The Tailor-made tags are also on the retiring list.
