Which Way to Nature?

Who knew learning to make cards other than square or rectangle could be so...complicated! I made an accordion fold card and I think it only took me about 3 or 4 sheets to get it the size and cut I wanted. Now I will know how to do it the first time and instead of using a solid color cardstock, I will use double-sided paper. 

I am happy how the final product turned out and it was a great learning experience. I used pattern paper from DCWV, the Flower Shower Spring stack since it reminded me of nature (Alphabet Challenge). I added a green ribbon to the front along with the circles cut from Celebrations. The sentiment was typed on Word.

There is an arrow (Frosted Designs) to let you know to open the door and there are two quotes on the left. There is another arrow on the right to tell you to lift up.

Be sure to leave a comment and let me know if you have tried making this type of card before or another unusual fold.

Stay Creative,
