To The Beach

I had several images that I wanted to use that were summery - some with dogs and some not.  I decided to make an extended accordian fold card (I made two bases (one with a tab piece) and joined them together.  As a result, this post is a bit picture heavy!

 It uploaded these back to front, so the first four are the close up views:

Then these next two are the front and back of the card.  The left hand panel on the top view has a lift up piece for the message to be written (and hidden while on display):

And lastly (which was meant to be the first picture), the accordian closed with the belly band.
I would like to enter:

Gecko Galz - Dog Days of Summer

Double D Challenges - Beach Time

I used a digital paper, images from sheets and some sentiments, all from Gecko Galz.  I added a bit of colour to some of the sentiments with a copic  marker.

I followed a tutorial for Accordian cards by Beccy's Place.  I created two Accordian cards (one with a tab added) and joined them together to create a larger Accordian card.


  1. What a wonderful double accordion card Suze - beautifully coordinated papers and images and fabulous assembly

  2. WOW, such a fabulous card, and such a lot of work. I love your vintage images, they are simply great! Lots of wonderful work here, and a great take on the challenge. Thanks so much for playing along with us over at Double D, hope to see you back again soon.
