Baby Accordian

I am sharing another style fold with you today. This one is called the Accordian fold.

I used some Soft Sky cardstock as my base and retired SU designer paper called Afternoon Tea.

The images are Rock n' Rolled in Soft Sky ink and Chocolate Chip ink using the Animal Stories set. For the rock n'roll technique I only used one ink colour instead of two. To get the proper effect, I inked up my image, stamped off once on scratch paper and then rolled the stamp around the edges on the ink pad again to achieve that slightly darker look on the outside. The giraffe image just wasn't enough by itself, so I used So Saffron ink on the old Canvas background stamp and added that for some extra 'texture'.

The tag is from the retired set Bundled in Love and punched out with the large Tag punch.

I made a belly band for the card using a scrap strip of Soft Sky cardstock and attached another image to the belly band.

Thanks for stopping by.
