Adventure of a Lifetime

Hi everyone and welcome to some Wednesday inspiration for Heartfelt Creations!

Today I have another Fancy Fold to share with you today.  It is another twist on an Accordion Card.  I hope you like it.  This card folds flat which is kind of cool.  That is except for the 3D balloon and flower!


this is what it looks like open


and the inside


and the best part, here are the flowers!


Products Used:

HCPC 3303 – Posy Patch Flowers PreCut Set
HCPC 3500 – Open Vintage Floret PreCut Set
HCPC 3545 – Open Leaf PreCut Set
HCPC 3596 – Celebrate the Journey Sentiments PreCut Set
HCPC 3599 – Balloon and Bicycle PreCut Set
HCPC 3600 – All Occasion Sentiments PreCut Set
HCD 701 – Posy Patch Die
HCD 727 – Vintage Floret Die
HCD 736 – Classic Leaf Die
HCD 744 – Once Upon a Time Die
HCDP1 242 – Celebrate the Journey Paper Collection
Gold Labels Four
Labels 4 Grand Nestabilities

Project Instructions:

Other products: White Card Stock,  Embossing Powder, Distressed Ink, Memento Ink, Glitter, adhesive and die cutting machine.


Start by following the template found here and cut it out in the center of a 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of paper.  As you can see the template is simply a series of U shapes, each 1/2″ smaller then the other.  After you cut out your template center the largest Grand Labels 4 over the template to form the base of your card.  Next cut a second cut of the Grand Labels 4 and scor it at the 1/2″ mark across the top.  This will be fastened to the back of the first die cut to allow the card to open.   Inside the openings on the front of the card I used 3 of the pre-made images that come with the Celebrate the Journey Paper Collection centered in the openings finished off with a 3D balloon stamped from the Balloon and Bicycle PreCut Set.  Last but not least, stamp, emboss and die cut the flowers using the Open Vintage Floret PreCut Set and the Posy Patch Flowers PreCut Set for the center of the flower.  Finish by adding a little glitter and a few more accessories from the Celebrate the Journey Paper Collection.

I hope to see  you again soon.  I love to read your comments, thank you so much!
