Cheer Up Accordion Card Revisited - Standard Size Postcard

Considering those of you that, like me, don't like making envelopes, here's the A2 size version of the Cheer Up, Four Panel Swing Card.

As in my last card, all the character faces are from the Chibi Boy Expressions from OAK Tree Stamps stamped on COPIC Express Blending Card (perfect for COPIC coloring). You can also use the Print then Cut ready precolored images from OAK Tree Stamps.

The arrangement on this card is a little different. It leaves you space in the front for a personal message or to embellishing away.

The round panels were embossed using the We R Memory Keepers folder "Celebrate". It is a pretty Asahi (rising sun) design that when applied on a small circle, makes it look like a rosette award ribbon medallion.
I made the faces pop using foam tape.

I tried making the sentiments pop as well, but the card ended up looking too bulky, so I decided to glue them flat instead.

Color combinations are endless,you could even make a monochrome one.

The lettering on this card also has an offset path that makes easier for viewing the white letters.
I also added a little flourish on the word laugh to make it more playful.

The final card is 4.25" x 5.5" wide, so you can mail it in a standard A2 size envelope.

The SVG provided has all the panels, the lettering and the offset paths for stamping the image without all the fuzzy cutting.

  1. Import in DS
  2. If needed, resize to 18.58 inches wide (the grouped images are 18.58, but every piece cuts OK on 8.5" x 11" cardstock)
  3. Cut
  4. Assemble
  5. Enjoy, comment and subscribe!
