Accordian fold and vine


 
 
Hi
This was such a pretty technique that I found on   http://shesasassylady.blogspot.ca/  under Gypsy Made Simple-Wedding Accordian Card.
I don't have a Gypsy but I thought I could make something similar on the Cricut Expression. 
Sheila said she would try vellum next time to make the accordian pleating.  So rather than play with cardstock I went straight to SU vellum.  It works beautifully but is a lot of work.  I will have to score a bit more the next time.  Maybe it will go easier the next time I do it, which I certainly will.
The vine is cut with a die and glued on .  The inside needed something so I just used the negative from the heart border.  I ran the front panel through a Cuttlebug folder.
It is a gorgeous card and the only time consuming thing is the pleating.  Much prettier in person or maybe click on the pic.
Have a Blessed day.

I love the way you try out all these different methods - you are far more adventurous than me and pretty successful too.

I'm so confused...I thought I had left a comment on this beautiful little heart card. The simplicity jumps right out at you. So glad I was revisiting so I could see I had not left a comment.

Your pleating does indeed look time consuming, but the end results are gorgeous. Your cards are always so elegant.

I don't stamp, or emboss but your designs inspire me to create. I work in Inkscape and scal and although I cannot duplicate your work I can really enjoy them.

Thanks,

It's gorgeous and can tell it was a lot of work but wow...the results are awesome and love your use of the vellum.

This is stunning! I wonder if you could run the vellum through one of the old fashioned crimpers to do the pleating? ~Diane
