Turtle Soup and Tuesday Tools, Tips and Techniques Challenges

Hi .....  Turtle Soup is excited to share daily challenges with you.
Today I am here to share some tips with this tutorial on how to make this cool but easy card. 
The card above was used as inspiration to make my card below. 
It was from pinterest and the little bue house. 
I loved the texture and the layers to this.. super fun.

It didn't come with full instructions so here are my tips/ tutorial on how to make
 my card below with some alterations. 

The card base is 5x5" folded. 
Use 4 1/2 x 4 1/2" accent cardstock base. 
Cut 4 1/2 x 4 1/2" blocks the same and use double sided paper -cut x2 

I didn't twist or angle mine like the sample but you can. 
Glue the accent cardstock onto card base centering it. 
Fold the other 2 pieces into quarters and slice almost all the way to centre (1/2" out from centre core) on the curled piece and almost to centre on the folded piece. 
On one roll a pencil at the corners to roll the edges. 
On the other fold flat to meet in the centre. 

Glue the rolled one down first putting glue only through the centre section of the 4 wings. 
Now glue the folded down piece inside the rolled ones. 
Add button, brad or gemstone centre or any accent you have. 

Close up below shows side view of the depth of the layers. 

You have all month to complete your project. You also have the option of doing either 1 Layout (you can make a smaller version of this and put as an accent on a layout), 2 Cards or 2 Tags or 2 ATC's (using even smaller versions of them). When you have completed your project add to the gallery and share in the Tuesday Challenge Link at the Turtle Soup so we all can view it.

rewrote some instructions if this makes it easier:
as per my photo as to colour 
black base 5x5 
red cardstock base 4.5 x 4.5 
two same double sided print 4.5 x 4.5 
1st roll pencil edges (black n white print) 
2nd fold into each other ( red, whit and blue colour) and place inside the rolled pencil one. 
is that easier? 

and above is an add on with additional layers and one layer twisted as per colours

Pink base 5x5 
pink print base 4.75 x 4.75 
turquoise cardstock  4.5 x 4.5 
twisted turquoise print 3.5 x 3.5
two same double sided prints 4.5 x 4.5 
1st roll pencil edges (turquoise with floral print) 
2nd fold into each other ( multi stripe print) and place inside the rolled pencil one. 
is that easier? 
and on this one I added a tag using twine and an SRM Sticker sentiment.
