1 stamp 6 ways - Jane

Hi everyone, 
You are in for a treat today with a super step by step by Jane who chose to use her Hobby Art Harbour set to make a concertina card. If you have never made one of those, now is your chance, Jane tells you all about it. 
Looking forward to reading your comments.

First, I cut two pieces of white card 6 3/4" x 4 3/4" and on one mark a border 1" along short edges and 3/4" along long edges. Cut out middle.

I then stamped the wall image all over the frame and coloured with Copics. This is the front of your card

On the other piece of white card, I coloured again with Copics to look like sky and stamped the small seagull images. This is the back of your card

Cut three more pieces of white card 6 3/4" wide to make your different stages in the card. They do not need to be as deep as your card, but will need arranging at different levels to suit. I started with the back layer and stamped the wall image along the top edge and coloured with Copics. On a seperate piece of card, stamp and colour five houses. Cut them out and stick them over the top of the wall

The next level is the breakwater and again stamp the image along the top of a piece of white card and colour with Copics. Add some sea water

 The last level will be sea and a yacht. Add some highlights to your levels with a white pen

Cut two more pieces of white card measuring 4 3/4" x 4" and score every 1/2" along the shorter edge. Fold on the score lines.

Stick the back of the card to the two folded pieces with double sided tape. Arrange the layers to suit, trimming any excess off the bottom and then sticking them to the folds

Build up the layers and finish by adding the front of the card

And Concertina card!!!!
