This card was submitted to Scrap & Stamp magazine for the theme of "Remember When", but was returned unpublished. Sigh!!

I used a cream toned cardstock, cut in half lengthwise and then folded accordion style, added the next piece of cardstock and continued folding until I had the length I wanted.

I colored the cardstock with Pan pastels in brown shades, leaving the central portion of each folded page with very little color so it almost glows.

I rubber stamped the quotes (All from Quietfire Design) with Versafine stamp pad with both the Vintage Sepia and Spanish Moss. All the other images and words were done with the same stamp pads.

The quote "May each Treasured memory" was selectively stamped one word at a time over all the pages. I also used stamps from the Flourish set & Paris set, as well as stamps from Stubbey Stampers "Corener Scroll #4028", Cornish Heritage Farms "Time to Stamp" set, Stamp it "Set #004"

I punched out the letters for the word "Memories" using my Cuttlebug and a new set of Sizzix Sizzlets alpha dies "Sunset #654882" from some white gold flecked textured paper.

Also added a bit of a lace doily using Martha Stewarts "Doily Lace" border punch. Tied everything together with a translucent variegated ribbon.
