Cute Card Thursday 'Autumn' Challenge
The challenge at Cute Card Thursday this week is to make an Autumn themed card and we have some fab stamps from Alota stamps to give to one lucky winner.
I have made a 6" Z Fold card and turned it the other way, the sentiment is behind the picture of Edwin.
I have used my favourite papers by Cosmo Cricket and lots of Glossy Accents on the acorn.



















Supplies
Stamps: Magnolia - Edwin with Broom, Owl, Iron Fence, Ant, Acorn, Oak Leaves
Tools: Pro Markers, Glossy Accents, Sakura Clear Stardust Pen, Scallop Scissors, Brad
DP: Cosmo Cricket


Edited: A couple of people have asked how I folded the card, it is a 6" sq card with the front folded at 3" to form a concertina and then instead of standing the card upright it is lying on its base. The brad is there to stop the front sliding down and a sentiment is hidden on the base behind the main picture. I saw this card fold on a website but I can't remember the name of it now.
