VIDEO: Bonanza Buddies Pop Through Accordion Card Tutorial

My favorite suite in the January-June Mini Catalog is Birthday Bonanza. I love the bright colors in the designer paper and the cute critters. I'm so disappointed that the entire suite is retiring in two weeks! That means there is only two weeks left to get the bundle and designer paper before it's gone! 

I designed this Pop-Through Accordion Card for my April Stamp of the Month Club. I try to feature a different fun fold each month. The focal point on this card pops through the window in the front of the card and is attached to an accordion pop-up inside.

Here is the front of the card when it's closed. (Tip: Make sure to stamp the card front before you assemble it and add the inside accordion piece!)

GREAT, GREAT fun fold, Julie!!! I love it to pieces! So easy but with so much impact!
I'm going to try this for my granddaughter's 4th grade graduation but with a different stamp set. No sure which one yet. :) Your video was so clear and you explained everything perfectly!! Thanks so much for your inspiration!

Online hugs!
