Happy Fall Y'all!

Well the 3d CardzTV Designers are back with our first challenge of the fall.  This weeks challenge is to make a 3D Fall Card.  This is what I came up with.

My card is a Double Dutch fold card.  You start with a piece of cards stock 4 3/16" X 9".  You score this piece of card stock at 5 1/2" that makes the top fold of the card.  You also need a piece of card stock 2" x 8 1/2".  This is scored at 2 1/8" and 6 3/8".  Attach the smaller piece of card stock to the back of the lower edge of the bigger piece.  The two flaps fold over to the front similar to a gate fold card.

My card base is made from Kraft card stock. To cover the larger flap up top you need a piece of card stock cut at 4" x 3 1/4".  I used a rusty orange piece of card stock from my stash.  I also cut little pieces to cover the flaps.  I cut mine at 1 7/8" X 1 7/8".  I embossed all to cover pieces with a Darice embossing folder called Autumn Leaves.  It is really a pretty embossing folder. Once I embossed the pieces I sprayed them lightly with some Tattered Angels Sugar Maple glimmer mist and let dry.

Next I cut my little scarecrow from the Simply Charms cartridge at 2 3/4".  I attached him with an action wobble so he can wave hello to everyone.  My sentiment is from the Thankful for You Cardztv Stamp set.  I cut the sentiment into 3 pieces so I could stamp it on Kraft cardstock to get the results I wanted.

Now that you've seen my card hop on over to the CardzTV blog and check out all the other designers projects.  Then get you project entered for a chance to win a set of CardzTV stamps.
