Accordion Card

While at the Christmas In July Retreat sponsored by AZ Scrapbooking in Green Valley, AZ  I took a gander at the newest Card Maker magazine that Andi brought.  There was a cool accordion card that caught my attention.  I was having a bit of a problem with the directions so I decided to try it.  I had to change the dimensions a bit so that I could use just 1 12"x12" solid card stock instead of 2 and I love how it turned out.  I have made some card similar in design but I played with some paper I got from Memory Works.  It's Simple Stories Awesome with matching solid card stock and stickers.

Here's the card closed with the belly band.

And opened!  I used a T.A.C. stamp on the label from a set called Wonder & Joy.  The store owned, Debi, liked this and I ended up giving an impromptu class for about 20 gals!  (Did this in 2 settings.)  It was enjoyed by the participants and 1 gal was up at 4:30 the next morning and made some more!  What a hoot.  I plan on making this a class this fall.

And, I think I'll clean some drawers and have a blog candy drawing.  Any interest?
