Double Trouble 92 - Dearest Friend Double Accordion Card

Welcome to Double Trouble Challenge 92! 

Fun folds or fancy folds... whatever you call them, they are so fun to create! There are SO many possibilities so find one and come and join us! 

The basic details are below. Please visit the Double Trouble Challenge Blog for detailed information about this challenge. 

I love very involved fun fold cards - the more folds, the better. This one is called a Double Accordion Card and the tutorial can be found here

I chose a blue and yellow colour scheme (two Play-Doh colours) and I didn't want to add any extra colours. The papers were selected because of the intense hues - primary Sapphire and Lemonade from CTMH. Some Blue Belle was used as well. The yellow paper has a small pattern on it that adds a little more to the card. The images were stamped with Sapphire pigment ink and embossed for the purpose of colouring with markers. The yellow flowers were brushed with Diamond Stickles and that has little specks of blue in it. The centres of the flowers were brushed with the Sapphire Shimmer Brush. There is a decorated panel on the back of the card for a place to write a message. 

Come and join us at Double Trouble and show us your fun folds!
