My Pink Stamper - November challenge "Unique Fold"

   Robyn's challenge for us this month is to create a card with a unique fold.  I have been wanting to try a telescope card; it is super easy!  I used My Pink Stamper "From the Heart" stamps for my three sentiments and my Cricut "Elegant Edges" cartridge for the shapes.

  This is how the card looks when it is open:

From the Heart stamp set:

Telescope card tutorial:

1.  Cut oblong frames (Elegant Edges p.48) @ 2 1/2", 3 1/2", and 4 1/2".  Cut oblong shapes @ 2 3/4", 3 3/4", and 4 3/4".

2.  Adhere frames to base shapes.

3.  Stamp My Pink Stamper sentiments inside each frame.

4.  Center the smallest shape upside down atop the medium shape.  Using a paper piercer, punch hole for brad and attach the brad.  Now center the medium shape upside down atop the largest shape.  Using a paper piercer, punch hole for brad and attach the brad.
