Card Making P.S I Love You Tutorials

Accordion album card with gift drawer – a tutorial by Kirsten Hyde

December 20, 2016

We are getting closer to Christmas and today, I am showing a little card with a small accordion album and little drawer with space for a little gift. This a super “last minute present”, or it could be used as a mothers day card/present or a valentine present. The card has been made with the fantastic PS I Love You collection- I just love this collection. It has a fantastic set of patterns, quotes and it has a wonderful set of pink and gray colours.

The card is only 11cm x 10cm x 2cm. The card has been decorated with wooden icons, flowers, quotes and collectables.

I have used a ribbon to “lock” the card.

Inside the card, I have left space for a photo.
