What is this called??

What a cool photo this turned out to be. It looks like the card is floating. I don't know what this type of card is called, so if you do, let me know so I can give it the correct title. It was very easy and I plan on sharing this with my card club this week. I used most of the new Stampin' Up! In colors, the stamp-a-ma-jig, markers and my new scor-pal. The stamp set is one of the sets I received at the convention, called Flight of the Butterfly. I also used the crimper on the cards belly band.


Directions:
Score an 11 inch x 4 1/4 inch strip at 1 3/8 intervals (or 3 1/2 cm) down the length of the card stock. Fold strip into an accordion shape with the front fold facing up. The four diamond backgrounds are graduated by 1/4 the largest starting as a 3 inch square, 2 3/4, 2 1/2, then 2. The white card stock is cut into 2 inch, 2 1/4, 2 3/4 and 3 inch squares. Using the stamp-a-ma-jig, place the butterflies in the center of the white squares. Adhere the squares together then adhere to the front of the folds. I made a belly band but you could easily use a ribbon to keep the card closed.
Have fun!
