The Paper Wishes Blog Giveaway called for the use of stamping supplies from Hot Off the Press, so that's what I used (Medallions & Corners, Tiny Words & Images). The paper is also from them (I glued it to card stock to add more stability for this telescoping card.
Just Add Ink has a fabulous blog hop with lots of different folded card variations. This is based on Patrice's card example, here. Hers is called "Telescoping Circles" so I guess mine would be Telescoping Ovals. I didn't have circle punches or dies, so used my Nestabilities Scalloped Oval dies. The picture of the fully telescoped card is at the bottom of this post.
Since Tuesdays are my day for looking at using up scraps, the papers were leftovers from other projects, making for a very inexpensive card! Here's a picture of the card when the ribbon is pulled to open the card up:
You might note the thin lines around the edges of the larger two panels. Often I make these lines by embossing my paper and then just hand drawing around the embossing with pen. In this case, however, I didn't want to emboss them, so I just inked up the cutting edge of the next smaller nestability die and used it as a stamp. Works great for creating an ultra-thin border.
