Fall Pumpkins Z-fold card

Hi everyone,
I am so happy to bring a short tutorial today. I shared this post over at She's a Sassy Lady today also.  This is a great blog made up by many great designers bringing you daily posts, and it is all hosted by the lovely Sheila, owner of She's a Sassy Lady.

So here we go... I made ver easy pumpkin card very easy using the Cuttlebug, embossing folders and the Cricut E2.

Start with a regular A2 card but you will fold the top flap in half and back, just as shown below. This will give you a "z-fold" card.
 Second, pick out you pattern paper for matting and a couple of pumpkin die cuts. They were cut at 1.50" using the Cricut E2.

Now adhere you mattes to your cardstock. These were cut at 5.25 x4" and 5.25 x2".

-Using the Cuttlebug and three different folder, emboss you pumpkins
-Brown ink (any would do) and a dauber need to ink the edges of your pumpkins
-Add pop up foam tape to the back of your die cuts

 When you adhere her die cuts to your card, you will only adhere to the left side top panel.

 To finish it off, you can add a sentiment ( I kept the outside blank, to add my sentiment to the card when I need to actually use it. That way this card can be for different fall occasions).  Using a stencil, I drew a couple of line leaves to fill the blank space.

Here it is open. To keep with the line leaves, I just did a simple handwritten line sentiment to the inside panel.
Once again, thank you Sheila for letting me share a very easy quick and fun card for you readers.
