Summer treat - an accordian ice cream cone

This project has been linked to the Patches of Pink Link up party for this week.  Check it out and add your own projects.  
This is a card I designed today for a Cricut Circle challenge.  For the weekly challenge we were to make a project showing a summer treat we enjoy.  I got this idea in my head for a card using our families favorite treat ice cream.   I wanted to have it look like a regular ice cream cone until it was opened up.  
The card itself is a 5 " x 12 " piece of cardstock.  I then scored the piece at 2 ", 4 " and 6 " and 8 ".  I then folded the paper  accordian style.  I then cut paper from  the DCVW Stack Simply Sweet.  Four pieces were cut at 1 3/4 " x 4 3/4 ".  One piece was cut at 3 3/4" x 4 3/4.  I glued these down and then added edge on each side using drippy glue punch.  I used the Sweet treats cart to cut the ice cream cone pieces.  I used my Gypsy and made several sample cuts.  The size I decided upon was 4.76.  
 I then embossed each piece and added Stickles and the stamps.
