Monochromatic Accordion Card Dragonflies Dandy Garden
Create a Monochromatic Accordion Card with the Dragonflies Dandy Garden Paper! Today is Part 7 of my “Create With DSP” series and we’ll be focusing on using the coordinating colors to create a stack of cards.
Pick your favorite coordinating color and then make your card around that color. On the other hand, you can also do what I did: make one in each of the colors!
This is the SEVENTH installment in my “Create With DSP” series! Wow! There are just a few more to go.
With lots of tips and recipes to showcase your favorite Designer Series Papers (or a good way to clean up your stash!), click here to start at the beginning!
Monochrome cards, or cards that use a single color throughout the design, can be striking to look at. Pair that with a fun fold card, and they are fun to make and fun to receive!

How to make a Monochromatic Accordion Card:
Cut your cardstock:
- Your favorite coordinating color
- 5 1/2” x 11”, scored at 1 1/4”, 4”, and 6 3/4”
- 1” x 11”, scored at 3” and 7 3/8” (this extra bit allows it to fit around the thick card base.
- Scrap for the sentiment
- Designer Series Paper (3 different designs)
- 4” x 5 1/4”
- 2 1/2” x 5 1/4”
- 1” x 5 1/4”
Adhere it down!
- Using your favorite adhesive, glue down each of the designer series paper pieces to the card base. ensure they are showing on the front of your card. I usually fold the card on the score lines first, and then glue the largest piece down first. Next glue down the two remaining pieces.
- Next, fold the belly band around the card and glue the ends together.
Decorate the belly band:
- Die cut a coordinating tag and glue it onto your belly band. Stamp a sentiment and add that to your tag.
- Lastly, stamp a dragonfly, color it with a marker in your coordinating color ink, and punch it out before glueing it to your sentiment.
