Stamp Simply #111 - Accordion Fold

Stamp Simply #111 - October 30- ssnotime111 - Today's challenge is all about Accordion Folding. How ever you want to create it - But you have to incorporate some kind of accordion type fold in to your project. Upload your project to Spiltcoast and use the keyword "ssnotime111". Check out all the Challenge Details and see Sharon's creation on her blog No Time to Stamp.
---------------------------
Please check out the great samples from the Stamp Simply Challenge today on the blogs of these totally creative designers:
Janine, Julie, AJ, Tammy, Deb and Barbara, also Barb Schram (Barb is kindly filling in for a bit as Jennifer Buck takes some time off.) and we have the talented Amy Rohl as our special guest stamper for October!
---------------------------

So this is my accordion fold card for the challenge. I made a simple paper band to secure it and hold it flat for mailing (in the top picture). The band can be easily slid off to display the open card (bottom picture). This card features way more cutting than I like to do! But it was a fun card and a great challenge to get me to make something different for a change!
-----------------------
The measurements to create the folding card base are as follows:
Start with a piece of card stock 10.5"x 5".
Score at these intervals, to create the folds: 1.25", 2.5", 4.25", 6" and 8.25".
-----------------------

My folded card base is white card stock, I then trimmed the DP to fit in each panel. All stamps are from The Cat's Pajamas. I stamped the images and added some color, then I trimmed everything out using my craft knife. I created the moon with a circle punch, using Copics to add color. The BOO is made with the new Alphabet from TCP called "Babydoll". I stamped each letter in black, I added some highlights with a Copic Marker and some little dots with a white gel pen. I then punched each letter out, sponged some black around the edges and also added some black stitch marks. I embellished with a ribbon running through each letter tag at the bottom.
