Sizzix square accordion fold card

I just picked up this new Sizzix die - square accordion fold card from the store last weekend and finally had the chance to make something with it and use the magnetic platform for the first time. I am so impressed how strong the magnet is on the platform. I used another stencil from Taj that I bought when I bought the panda bear couple weeks ago. This one is a hula bunny but I decided to make it without the skirt.
The stamp sentiment is also from Taj. And the ladybug is a die from Elizabeth Craft Designs.
I know I haven't been posting much lately but by the time I get home, I am so tired that I can't even get myself motivated to make anything. My body is still adjusting to all the medication that I have to take and one of the side effects is, feeling very tired.
Thanks for stopping by today and hope to be back real soon!

Thank you panda

Hi, I'm back again! I've been determined to figure out how to dry emboss so when I went to Taj Clubhouse last week, I bought a couple of stencils. It was much easier for me to use a stylus and a light box than running it through the big shot machine. I also took out my daylight lamp and it really helped me to see better so I could cut around the embossed pieces. 
Here's a gatefold card that I ended up making using the panda bear that I embossed.
 The sentiment on the inside of the card is from Dandelion Designs.
Here's a close up of the panda bear. My cutting is still a little choppy but I think as I practice more, it will get better.
I haven't used a camera to take photos in such a long time. I'm so amazed at how well the camera on my iPhone takes nice photos.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment! It's nice to know that people still visit my blog.
Have a great weekend!!!
