Clear Dollar Stamps Charlie Autumn

Welcome to our Clear Dollar Stamps "These are a few of my favorite things" blog hop!  If you've arrived here from Lorie's blog you're on the right track.  If not and you'd like to start at the beginning click --> here.

Now to our theme...  wow, a "few" of my favorite things...
Clear Dollar Stamps digital images and papers are on that list, as are Copic markers but my most favorite thing of all is trying new things.  Paper crafting things to be specific.

I have a fun fold card to share with you today made with Charlie Autumn from Clear Dollar Stamps and a video of how I put my fun fold card together.  The inspiration for my card came from Sherryann at Button Junkie.


I kept my layout clean and simple, Charlie is colored with Copic markers E44, E43, E42, E41, Y11, C00, C0, C1, R20.  


Recap of measurements to make the card:
4 1/4 x 5 1/2 blue cardstock, 11 inch white strip cut to 3 1/4" wide, scored at 4 1/2, flipped and scored at 4 1/2.  Mats for inside and Charlie image are cut 1/8th inch larger from brown cardstock.

I hope you enjoyed today's video and will be inspired to give this simple fancy fold a try.

Great job on the video Jan. It was so easily to follow! This fold is nice and a bit unusual. I like that it results in the two panels and how you used one for your sentiment and yet there is a nice full space for writing.
