Paper Pumpkin Accordian Card

Well, they’ve done it again!  My Paper Pumpkin has come up with the cutest idea this month!!  An Accordion Fold Card!IMG_8184Isn’t this so cute?!!  Notice the yellow stamp under the H… that’s me putting my photopolymer stamp on upside down!  Sadly, this isn’t the first time I’ve done that.  I still like it!IMG_8182They even have boxes to go with the cards! (8 cards & boxes included!)

IMG_8179I added this flower stamp from the Hostess Set called Bloom With Hope then colored it using Blendabilities.
