Autumn Joy Fold Plus

    This card starts off as a simple joy fold card. I used brads and pop dots to attach the flowers made form Graphic 45's die. I fussy cut the "Autumn" sentiment from ephemera and surrounded it with brown pearls, as well as acorns and a leaf. The acorns and leaf were the punch poop from a ek edge punch.

     When you pop the panel from under the flowers, the card opens as a tri-fold. There is a pocket and tag on the left and more fussy cutting on the right. The center is adorned with a stamp and stripes from Patterns and Solids.

     Here comes the PLUS!!! When you flip up the center panel you get an extra somethin' somethin'. I edge punched the mat for the top panel and used the punch poop to trickle down on the ephemera post card on the bottom panel. I used the edge punch on some Brown Eyes paper to make the acorns. The tops of the acorns are colored with gold gel pen.

     Here is a close-up of the falling leaves and acorns. I also added a stamp.

     I will be making 16 cards and 4 calendars with this Graphic 45 Seasons Paper. All of these SEASON cards can be made using:

  • one sheet of each of the patterned paper 
  • one sheet of each of  Prints and Solids
In order to make All Seasons cards and calendars, you only need purchase the following items once:
  • Tags and Pockets
  • Chip Board
  • Ephemera
  • Stickers
  • Season's Patterns and Solids 
Stay tuned for more cards this year.
