Tri-Accordian Wedding Card

I went to my "fancy folds" folder to start this wedding card.

Directions

Cut card base 10 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches and score at 1 1/2, 4, 6 1/2.
Cut patterned paper for the panels:
      2 - 1 1/4 x 5 1/4
      2 - 2 1/4 x 5 1/4
      1- 3 3/4 x 5 1/4
Sew a border around each sheet of patterned paper.
Cut two nested hearts and place on 1st and 3rd panels.
Cut a lattice cover for the smaller heart.
Stitch around the larger heart.
Use part of a 5 or 6 inch circular doily on the last panel.


Embellish the large heart and the doily. I placed a bronze brad on the large heart and lightly sprinkled pearls on 3rd panel and large doily.
Add silk flowers and gold organza ribbon.
Place sentiment on 4th panel. This card could easily be a birthday or Mother's Day card.


This card got some oo's and aw's at the bridal shower . . . just sayin'!
