Card Creating Tuesday!

Hello and Good Morning!
I hope you all had a great weekend and was able to see the blog hop that My Cricut Craft Room had going on during this past weekend. Boy there are a lot of talented ladies on this Design Team.
If you haven't yet then visit her Blog as soon as your done looking at this cool card that I made; for today's theme Card Creating Tuesday!

I made a card that is called an Accordion Card!
Why do they call this an accordion card? Well its because it is kinda folded like one. I think this is such a fun and different card!
Below I made sure that I put specific Instructions so you too can make one of these amazing cards.

Here it is.....

I first designed my Spider and Pumpkin for my embellishments for this card!

The Pumpkin is from Paper Dolls for Everyday Cricut Cartridge. I made 3 because I wanted to make it 3 dimensional.
The Spider  was made using the Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut Cartridge.
Both of these were cut at 5.9 "

After this then I made a base for the card using a Beige color card stock. This is measured from 51/2 x11 inch card stock.

Then I scored this at the 1 1/2, 3, 5 1/2 ,and 8 lines on the Martha Stewart Score board.( NOTE) If you don't have one of these GET ONE, this board will make your cards look phenomenal...

Then you fold on the lines from Right to left and an accordion style way. What your card should like after you fold it, it should have your first piece the smallest part of the card to the biggest.

Then you decorate, now i cut my pieces a little smaller than the actual size of the rectangles to give my card some character, It is up to you how ever you like to cut your paper to fit the base of the card is your decision.
The orange piece of paper is cut from 2x7 inches to be used to hold the card together.

Then you decorate your card however you please.
I hope you like this idea and you understand them and I hope you share with me your cards after you make them...
You all have a Great Crafting Day and don't forget to check out the rest of these talented ladies  over at My Cricut Craft Room.
