Double Accordion Display Card

Now that my Christmas cards are all done, I have some time to play! My favourite types of cards are those that are interactive or multi-panel cards and this is another one. 

This accordion display card was created using the Every Little Thing paper collection. The card itself isn't difficult to create but it's all the little squares and rectangles with mats that take a long time to cut. I also did a lot of colouring on this card and that alone is a time consuming task. A video that shows how to create this card can be found here

There is a belly band that goes around the card to hold it together. The closed size is 6" x 6" but when it is open, it spreads apart to measure 20" long! 

I started with a black base and used Wisteria and Julep cardstock as the other cardstock colours. Many of the Every Little Thing floral images are partially coloured so I filled in most of those and stamped and coloured the main page. The back panel was splattered with the Mint Shimmer Brush and coordinating images were stamped and coloured. A zip strip from the paper pack was added along the sides and across the belly band. The front panels were embossed before I added the belly band and the fussy cut image.

I am linking up with the Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge as the theme is Anything Goes.
