Onstage Display Stamper Blog Hop - Day 7: Concertina Fold Card

And here we are at our finally day. Day 7 of the Onstage Display Stamper Blog Hop and what an incredible time we've all had.

I did warn you at the beginning that your wish list for the new Occasions Catalogue might grow longer longer with each hop. And after today's finale, I expect it to grow longer still.

So my final share is a gorgeous Concertina Fold card, that is super easy to make but looks amazing in real life. I have made a few of these for children's birthday parties, and have put the birthday boy or girls name on them. It's perfect when you have a child with an unusual name, as I expect they get very few personalised gifts. Today I left this one with just Happy Birthday so it could be used for anyone:
The card itself is made up with just one piece of patterned paper and I used the Petal Passion designer series paper, as I wanted the letters to be the hero of this card and this paper males a perfect background. Being black and white, it allows the stamping to shine and the letters to sparkle.

The stamps used are some of the flowers from the Perennial Birthdays stamp set, and I choose 6 different shades of pinks and purples to give an ombre effect. Pairing those stamped panels with coordinating cardstock and it really does make the whole effect beautiful.

This card folds nice and flat and will fit into a normal size envelope, so can be easily posted to that special person.

And that, ladies and gentleman, is that. I can not thank you all enough for the lovely comments you have left and I really do hope I have given you some inspiration and ideas. new Occasions and Sale-a-bration catalogues really are amazing and I know you are all going to fall in love with them as much as we have!!

So its time for me to say farewell for now, but I really do hope you'll visit me again very soon, but for now it's time for you to take one last hop over to see Dawn Olchefske stunning creation.

Happy Crafting,
