Accordion File

Good morning to you all.  Just a quick post today.   About a month ago I bought the Big Score Board from Crafters Companion. This was one of the projects on the CD - ROM that came with the board.

My Project

I used double sided A3 card from Crafter's Companion, together with white centura pearl for the inserts and embellishments. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the edge and SB Parisian Accents and SB Foliage around the Wild Orchid Crafts flowers.  The lace,  ribbon and pearls are from my stash.

I have decided to fill it with some cards and include it with my sister's Christmas gifts.  I often end up making cards for her and having to post them.  This way she will have a little stash ready to hand.

Hope you are all well.  We are off to Cheltenham to do some shopping in an hour or so.  My first Christmas shopping trip and I want to get it all done.  Luckily some of my gifts are "money - bigger kids seem to like that and it suits me!!  I do have one or two gifts though. Thick fost and fog so that country road trip is going to be challenging to say the least.  This is the main reason I 'm glad I no longer work in Cheltenham - summer was lovely but winter was a pain!

Take care.

Good morning Christine, love this and so will your sisiter, especially filled with much needed cards. A great gift, has given me an idea for a couple of friends. I have the board, not even unwrapped. I actually have 2 of these boards. C&C sent a replacement as the first one had wrong measurements.
I hope you had a great day shopping
