Fussy and fancy Challenge 125 ... Orange and Black

Challenge #125 is Orange and Black, hosted by the lovely talented Jo Rice and sponsored by Marianne Designs.

As soon as is I saw the theme I thought of Halloween, which is just a few weeks away now, I always like to have some sweets at the ready for any spooky callers and I thought this accordion card would just brighten up the table in the hall ready for visitors!!

I made my paper pumpkins by die cutting some scalloped circles, folded them in half and glued together along the spine of each folded circle. I made one flat backed so that I could attach it to the front of my card. The base of the card is made using a clever Sissix die which cuts the outer frame and the flipping centre piece all in one...

I cut some patterned Graphic45 paper to make frames and backgrounds for the centre section. Then it was just a case of adding my letters to spell the word BOO

Here is a photo taken from above showing how the two interlocking accordions fit together

It squishes down into a small 5x5 card,  a very useful type of card for words, because you can make them as long as you like by adding more frames.
Well that's it for this time, between now and next time I am going to start making my Christmas cards, I can't believe it's that time of year again 2014 has just flown by
