80's Anya and mini-accordion file folder....



Hello Everyone!

While looking for some inspiration, I discovered the blog Amazing Grace and I was totally in awe of Becca's beautiful cards. While drooling over her creations, I stumbled across this mini accordion file folder and fell in love with it. Included in her post was a link for directions to make this accordion file folder and the credits go the the talented Maria Bell!

I followed the given instructions and was very happy with the results! I'm still a novice at making " things" and I have challenged myself to try to make something on a regular basis.



The name of my image is 80's Anya (limited edition)and she is a new stamp from The Greetings Farm. She is colored in with Copic Markers and matted with the large oval nesties die. I embellished the file folder with a simple flower, half pearls and ribbon.


Other materials used.........
thin cardboard, size #10 business envelopes, scallop punch, dbl. sided tape, Scor-Pal, SU's window punch, card stock (SU and Papertrey Ink), design paper from DCWV.

Have a wonderful weekend and thank you so much for stopping by!

hugs

Risa
