Hello, Val here today with a fun Concertina Card featuring all 4 designs included in our new Oddleigh Leprechaun set.

This is the front of the card when closed. 

To make the card base I started out with 4 x A6 Neenah white cardstock panels.

  To create one long panel I attached each A6 panel to the next with masking tape.

I used masking tape instead of sticky tape to add extra strength to each fold.

 Then added a frame to each panel with a black Sharpie marker.

 I printed out the 4 Oddleigh Leprechaun images onto more A6 card.

Then trimmed each panel down by 1cm on all 4 sides.

I coloured the backgrounds around the images with Wild Honey Distress Oxide with an Inkylicious Ink Blending Brush.

I coloured the cute quirky Leprechaun using Spectrum Noir Colourista Pens:
Forest Green, Leaf Green, Rose and Gold.  His face was coloured with Spectrum Noir CR2, TN3 and TN5.   I also used a Sakura glitter pen to add sparkle to the buckle.

 I coloured the Pot o' Gold with Forrest Green, Leaf Green and Gold and added sparkle to the both the pot and the text with Sakura Glitter pens. 

I printed out a second image of the Oddleigh Pot o' Gold and fussy cut out all the gold coin pieces.

These I adhered over the original image on the panel and applied Glossy Accent for a nice shiny dimensional effect.

I used Forrest Green, Leaf Green and Gold to colour the Four Leaf Clover Corner and added green Sakura glitter pen sparkle highlights.

I then edged the panels and hand drew in a loopy pattern border with a black Sharpie marker.

To complete my quirky concertina card I then adhered all the panels to the card base.
