In Love with Stampin Blog hop

Well this is a first! My team leader challenged us to do something for the first time and this is one of mine, My very first blog hop. Your should have arrived from here  and afterwards you can make your way to   next blog Phew I hope this all works! The blog hop challenge was to use items from the Spring Summer catalogue As I've been wanting to do a concertina card for a little while now I thought it was the ideal opportunity so here is my project. I really enjoyed doing it and hope you like
it too. I first saw it on this blog I can't actually find the post sorry.

If you have missed any of the others here is a complete list, It would be really helpful if you could leave me a comment as its nice to know where you are in the would thank you. Sue

Male Concertina

Hope you've all had a lovely Easter the weather was very kind to me I was in Yorkshire over the weekend and only saw rain in the night!
I had time to make some concertina cards here is my masculine version. to make you need to cut a 12 x 12 piece of DSP at 4" and 8" score at 21/2" 5" 71/2" an 10". On two pieces score with the tag punch and trim off the excess edges. on the third cut off the last 2" piece and  glue centre section together. Cut 10 pieces of contrasting paper at 2" x 31/2" for backgrounds and 10pices at 13/4" x 31/4" in Whisper white and decorate as you wish. I've used the candles from the Birthday Candles, Words from Cycle Celebration, Sketch Alphabet and Numbers and 1" circle punch with the11/4" scallop circle punch to outline. DSP Neutrals

I think we all have difficulty making mens cards so here are two cards made using mainly SU DSP from the pcks so everthing coordinates beautifully
