The Eden’s Garden suite of products is GORGEOUS!!! Part of the suite is an early release, but part of it is ONLY available while supplies last. The Designer Series Paper that I used to make the Accordion Tri-Fold card is called EVER EDEN. It is absolutely stunning, but you have to grab it soon.

When it’s gone, it’s gone! It’s perfect for making today’s accordion tri-fold card!

Which Accordion Tri-Fold Card was your favorite? I’d love to hear!

Accordion Tri-Fold Card: Up Close

Remember, this DSP is only available while supplies last. The stamps/dies will be in the new catalog coming in January.


This is a great card to make with any designer or scrapbook paper and requires very little stamping.

You can get as fancy as you want with your stamping and layers but I kept mine simple so the paper could be the star of the show!


To get started with the accordion tri-fold card pick your favorite scoring method. I love the Simply Scored tool. It is always sitting on my desk as I use it on almost every card that I make.


Cutting & Scoring

The base of thisaccordion tri-fold is 5 1/2″ x 11″ (a little bigger than a 1/2 sheet of cardstock). Below is the diagram that shows where to score.

The green measurements are for the layers on each of the panels. You can layer with Designer Series Paper or cardstock. or even, leave a couple layers with nothing layered. So many options with this fold.


The “Belly Band” strip is 1″ x 10 1/2″


Pin It!

I hope you enjoyed the project and give this fun fold card a try. You can make it with any stamps, inks and papers. It’s a great way to use up your scraps of DSP that you just don’t know what to do with.

  1. Thanks, Jackie! The directions were so clear and I love both cards. I don’t like the elaborate fold cards, but this is simple enough and interesting. I also love the paper, and it really showcases it. Great!

    • Happy Thanksgiving! Yay—I LOVE when people pin the images; really helps us creators when people pin, share, and comment so THANK YOU!!!

  2. Jackie – Thank you for this card idea! I’ve made one using the Sunshine and Rainbows paper and I’m about to make a second one with some older Stampin’ Up paper, Frosted Floral, that I have in my stash. This is such a fun card to make! Also thank you for your videos! I watch via the YouTube app on my TV so I can’t comment on them there but enjoy them so much!

    • I’m so glad you enjoyed making the card with the Rainbows paper–sounds lovely and of course, I appreciate your watching too!
