Theme Day Thursday! BABY....

Hello All!
 I hope your weekend is going great so far! One more day till Friday! Yippee... So today's theme BABY! Check out over at My Cricut Craft Room to see what the other designer's made for today's Theme.
I love this Theme because my son is still a baby, he will be 22 months on the 23rd of September!!

So I am going to try to show you and explain to you how I made this awesome card! This card is so cool and is a great idea for Christmas presents...It's cheap and its sentimental!
This card is my first Squash Card! Yes you read right; squash card!
This is a unique card! 

Here its is....

This is the front of the card!

When you open the card this is what is in the inside!
Hence the words SQUASH !

OK So how did I make this... Just read below!

You need a 4x4 cardstock card
3x3 card stock card
(Total of two)
this will be your lid and the last piece of  your card

Now place the 3x3 card in the middle of the 4x4 card and glue them together.

Then cut an angle on all 4 sides of the lid

Then fold all 4 sides down and glue them

This is what the lid should look like once you finish gluing the sides down.

Now put those lids and base on the side and get a 6x6 piece of cardstock

Then score at the 3' mark on both sides of the card, when you finish with that you should have a tic tac toe board. Then your going to fold one of the points of your card to another point and you should have made a triangle. You need to do a total of (3)

So when your finish doing this it should look like this...

Now when you do this make sure you place all three diamond cards where the middle line is up and down. Then take the middle card and glue the sides together. The left one should over lap on top of the middle card. The right card should be underneath the middle card.

(note this is important to do this)

Sorry I didn't take any pictures of how to the next step...but this is what you should do.
Once you glue the sides together place the paper upwards take the first card and press the two triangles that are on the side and press them towards you. Then it should all fall into place. Then take the second diamond cardstock and press the two triangles on the side away from you. The third diamond cardstock press them towards you again. Then it should squash all the pages and then glue your lid on top and glue the bottom on the bottom of the card. Then WA-la you should have a cute squash card!

I wanted to show you all what was inside
This was my Ethan during his transplant.
He was 15 months old.

Well this is my very first squash card..

Hope you all like this...tell me what you all think!
