Acordian fancy fold

Hope you all had a lovely weekend, wasn't the weather gorgeous!?! Saturday I was busy painting my fence, and yesterday i took my son go karting, he's been gaining a while now with his dad but only every other weekend, and they've said because he's downing so well they'd like him to go every week, so today was my first time taking him, and ohhhhh boy was mummy scared - although he was awesome and I was proud my heart was in my month the whole time - guess its that having no control ... 

So now to the job in hand and this weeks make my Monday challenge... FANCY FOLDS

I toyed with several ideas, but finally decided on this Acordian fold card, which I'd never tried before but glad i did as I'm quite pleased with how it turned out....

I've used the Stampin up set Papillion Potpourri - with their coordinating butterfly punches, which made this card pretty quick to make... 

I've used basic grey as my card base, with melon mambo and whisper white...

My sentiment comes from another Stampin up set apothecary art, which Ive stamped also in melon mambo onto a strip of whisper white...

To make the Acordian fold card:

2 sheets of a4 cardstock, 
Scored at 7.4cm, 14.8cm and 22.2cm

Then mark on the right hand bottom corner 7cm up, then cut diagonally from your first score line to the 7cm mark, do this on both sheets of card stock,

Then cut half way up on the 1st and 3rd score line, on one sheet from top to bottom then on the second bottom to top...

Then slip them together and voila.... 

I can't wait to visit your blog to see your fancy fold card for this weeks make my Monday challenge

What I've used:
Stamps - Papillion potpourri and apothecary art
Punches - elegant butterfly and Itty bitty butterfly
Cardstock and ink - basic grey, melon mambo and whisper white.
