Accordian Flower

This is card that I cased from SCS. I'm sorry I'm not sure who did it orignally. It has the accordion flower from the SAB mini... which is so cute and easy to make. For this card, It really is a tree though.

The card itself is Kiwi Kiwi with a layer of Chocolate Chip that I ran through the Big Shot with the little dot texture plate (love this!) The designer paper is from the Good Morning Sunshine set.

The trunk of the tree is from the Trendy Trees set. Then I made the accordion tree out of Kiwi Kiss cardstock. I wouldn't recommend this. I would use designer paper. It holds together better. This one kept coming apart and I had to redo it with designer paper. The weight of the cardstock makes it like a spring that just wants to spring open!

Anyway, the button in the middle is from the Latte button set and the greeting is from the Trendy Trees set also. The only other detail (which you can't see very well) is that the Kiwi Kiss strip along the bottom of the tree, is snipped along the way-- to make it look like grass.

Let me know what you think!
