Holiday Accordian Card

This accordion fold card was inspired by Sharon Johnson at "No time to Stamp" - see her site (and tutorial from 11/21/08) and also Just Rite Stampers site for her posting. Love her concept. I used the Lovely Letter alphabets. I also made the card 4-1/4" high instead of 3-1/2" high to utilize the entire CS . Finished size is 4-1/4" x 30" Long.
This is a close-up of the "Merry" - you can see the Gold Emboss edges of the designer paper. I later added 3 punched 1/8" circle to the Poinsetta Flowers (not shown in Photo).
This photo shows the "Christmas" section.
The card is "closed" by a separate tie. This is the front view.
