Poinsettia Accordian Fold

Today's Stamp Simply challenge (ssnotime111) is to create an accordian fold; my design measures 4.25" x 10.5." I scored the base cardstock at the 3.5" and 7" marks on my ScorPal.

The panels are all Basic Grey Wassail dp, ticket corner punched, and layered onto PaperTrey Ink's Rustic White. The base cardstock is Stampin' Up's retired Cranberry Crisp (my all time favorite "IN" color!).

The Bible Verse (Luke 2:14) is from Our Daily Bread design's new November release, "Christmas Verses" (for sale November 1st!). I stamped the verse onto the Rustic White cardstock with Versafine Sepia ink, then heat embossed it with SU Fine Gold Detail embossing powder.

I used Stampin' Up's distressing tool to rough up the edges of the Bible Verse, as well as the entire cardstock base perimeter.

I enjoyed using my new Spellbinder's Poinsettia dies to create the flowers up top. Foof-a-La buttons become flower centers, along with a retired SU Cranberry Crisp ribbon bow.
