Concertina congratulations card with Stampin' Up! Large Letters

Hi there,

A couple of weeks ago, hundreds of us Independent Stampin' Up! demos met together for our bi-annual corporate event called On Stage. One of the features of this event is recognition of those demos who have done particularly well with Stampin' Up! over the past year. And I'm so happy to report that my upline, Caroline, of CraftyCarolineCreates, was recognised for being in the top 5 UK demonstrators in all three categories of Sales, Recruitment and Leadership and was ranked at number 83 in the Global 100. Such wonderful achievements and I wanted to make an extra special card to recognise her achievements. My card was inspired by samples I had seen on Pinterest by other demos - namely Julie Kettlewell and Joanne James - thank you ladies for your inspiration!

 It was very tricky to get a photo that does justice to the card as it is so long but narrow. It is a concertina card with 17 panels! The next photo might give a better view - taken at a slightly different angle!

As you can see, once again I have used the Large Letter dies. I know that these are a considered purchase but I have used them so much they have repaid my investment many times over. Maybe they could go on your Christmas wish list? 

I had such fun making this card and my head is buzzing with all kinds of other occasions it could be adapted for - watch this space for my Christmas version coming soon!

If you would like to make your version of the card above, here are the measurements you will need:

4 strips of Thick Very Vanilla card - 11 3/4 ins x 3 3/4 ins. Score these at 2 3/4 ins, 5 1/2 ins, 8 1/4 ins and 11 ins. On the first panel add one more scoreline at 2 1/8 ins

You will also need one more panel in the same cardstock measuring 3 3/4 ins x 2 3/4 ins.

In Crumb Cake, 17 panels measuring 3 1/4 ins x 2 1/4 ins

In "Bundle of Love" DSP,  17 panels measuring 2 ins x 3 ins.

The small panel for the front of the card measures 7/8 in x 3 1/4 ins in Crumb Cake and 5/8 in x 3 ins in DSP. 

I have made a video tutorial to show how I made my card which you can see HERE 

Of course I forgot to take a photo of the Very Vanilla and Gold card when it was closed and secured with ribbon before I sent it off to its recipient (doh!) but here is the one I made on the video which is much the same except different colours.

And here is the card I made on the video:
