'Tis Tuesday - Still Christmas :-)

Helllooo!  Hope you have a had a great start to the week.

I am loving this time off from school runs, however, I can't believe how quick this month is going by.

Once again, I am showing you another card from the wonderful Studio 12 Picknix 3 - Nordic Winter.

I had to have a go at this wonderful Concertina card.  But the pattern that I found HERE (thanks Christina) was a little on the big side, so adjusted the measurements and I have given them below for your use.

You will need a piece of card (patterned or plain depending on how you want to decorate it) that measures 10" by 6.5" and a panel piece that measures 5" by 5".

First score the 5" square piece at the centre point, 2.5", make a valley fold and put to one side.

Next take your 10" by 6.5" piece and score down from the long edge at 2.5", 5" and 7.5".(apologies for quality of photo on this one)

These will be a valley fold, a mountain fold and a valley fold.

Next you have to remove a panel from the centre as follows.

Between the 2.5 and the 7.5" score marks and 1.5" down from the top and up from the bottom, removing a 5" by 3.5" panel - you do not need this piece.

In the centre two sections you need to cut a slit - 0.75" long from the inside edge towards the top and the bottom, at the middle point of each of those sections.  Like this.

Here it is with a coloured panel so that you can see the slits.

Then the 5" by 5" panel from earlier will fit in the centre section - like so.

Here it is standing.

I hope that makes sense :-) it folds flat and is 2.5" by 6.5" when flat.

And here is my card using the new collection.

The chalkboard sentiment was actually changed in colour using Word - as I wanted it green and not black for this card.  

I just love this card and can see me making a few more using this style!

I really do love these papers and fabulous digital elements.  I'll be back soon with another new collection to show you.  Would you like another sneak peek?  Ok then :-)

Eek - do you see the owly!   :-)

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.
