Welcome to our Paper Crafting Blog Hop featuring talented Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe including the USA, United Kingdom, and Australia are participating. We have a wide array of fun projects and design styles to share with you! You may have arrived from Terri ’s blog. She had a wonderful project!
This month’s blog hop theme is December holidays, but I couldn’t limit myself to just one holiday. I have a card for Christmas and one for the New Year, both using the same design. These accordion cards feature the Alphabest stamp set (#158884) and the accompanying Best Label Punch (#158885).
The card uses an accordion design, with the letters of the message on different panels of the card. The card is a standard 4¼ ” by 11″ base, scored every inch along the long side to create the panels of the accordion. The card is folded zig-zag fashion. The letters on the card were stamped individually and then punched out with the Best Label Punch. I added a coordinating piece of DSP behind the letters to build more contrast with the primary DSP on the card.
The New Year’s card uses the same technique, substituting a different pattern from the Celebrate Everything DSP. To balance out the letters on the panels, I added an exclamation point at the end.

Traci, that is a cool fun-fold! I really like the New Year’s card!
Very festive cards – and a great fun fold idea! Thanks for sharing!
What a fun fold!
Yes, Traci, this fold looks like a real fun fold. Both cards look gorgeous and the use of the alphabet bundle is inspired.
Traci, such a great fun-fold! Both cards are fantastic!!
