got my craft on

Unknown name?? 
Good evening friends.  This weekend I was able to steal a little time to make a few cards.  While I was hopping around Pinterest I saw a card shape I liked,  the creator called it a "Layered window Frame",but I did not have the die to cut the shape of the card that the young lady had posted, so I tried going at it a little differently.  I really liked the way her's turned out., but I am happy with this though.  Not sure if there is a name for it, if it has been done, but here are the cards I did and what I did to achieve it.

First of all you will need a piece of card stock cut at 4 1/4 by 11 inches....

Then you score the cardstock at ..3 1/2, 4 1/2, 6 1/2 and 7 1/2

Mountain/valley fold it... then on the 2 inch piece in the center you will cut out any shape that you want as the mate and layer it with as many mats as you want, changing each layer by 1/4 inch increments.
On each side you will have to mat the cardstock with coordinating cardstock, starting at 3 1/4 by 4, as well as patterend paper and of course embellish them.

I found them easy, fun and now for the suppies used list:
Close to my Heart..Stamps
