Fall Cards for Friends

Hello & Happy Thursday!

Been a busy week with Shawn working some long hours and I have been busy in my stamp room prepping for upcoming card classes. My hands aren't real happy but I will rest them next week once I get everything cut and ready!

So, yesterday I was looking for some cool idea's to make some cards to send to my stamp girls for the first day of Fall. #makeacardsendacard 
I was hopping around on Pinterest then Facebook.
Then I found a card that was perfect for what I was looking for!
Not really sure of the name of it and I will give you the directions at the end.

Since Saturday is the first day of Fall (Thank God!!), these are the cards I made.

Card #1

Card #2

Card Details:

Stamps: Amuse- Autumn Leaves, For All Things (retired)
Ink: Crushed Curry, Early Espresso
Cardstock: Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Whisper White, Country Lane DSP
Accessories: Circle Layering Framelits, Gold Rhinestones, Crushed Curry Twine, Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Liquid Glue

These were very quick & simple to whip up!

Here is how....

Start with a piece of cardstock measuring 4 1/4 X 5 1/2
Coordinating DSP cut at 4 X 12
Score at 1, 4 1/4 and again at 9 1/2
Fold and use bone folder for a nice crease.
The 1 inch piece gets folded the opposite direction so it will show the other side of DSP.
Attach your DSP to the piece of cardstock. 
Then add an inside piece of cardstock to write your message on. 
Decorate the front.

Any questions please shoot me an email at

My thoughts today....

That is all for now!
Thanks for stopping by & enjoy your day!

Wow! Very pretty. I'll admit it took my brain a minute to figure out what you did for that layout! LOL Does it lay closed all by its self? First day of fall now if all the rain and humidity just stay away all will be good!! ;-)
