Accordion But No Music

Hi.  Marsha here with you again today sharing a card 

One of the fun features of making these cards is that you can make your card with as many panels as you want.  Usually I make three but this time I put only two together.
After cutting out how many panels you want, you can start adding pieces of designer paper.  Just cut them with the main panel die and then snip off the center tabs that hold the circle and cut off the edge.

Now decorate the circles as creatively as you want:  cut circles with the dies that come with the set, stamp sentiments and cut with the scallop circle, etc.
I did both for the right side.

For the left side panel I used the beautiful Die-namites Fragile Flowers
coloring the stems and leaves with Copics and adhering a piece of yellow cardstock behind the flower.
Next step is to cut off one of the edges and one of the tabs:

Now to assemble everything and form it into a folding card:
Adhere the remaining long edge to the back of the other panel and the remaining tab to the back of the circle on the other panel:
 (I like to cover the back of the circles with designer paper)
And now you have your accordion card!
