Stampin Up Autumn Harvest Multi-Flap Card

Hi Friends!! Do you see the staging of my card? It's a Thanksgiving theme. I've always loved the staging that people create with their photos but I'm usually VERY lazy to make my photos pretty and such. I typically take a photo with whatever backdrop I have. I recently bought a few Thanksgiving decorative items because they were 40% at Michaels so I decided to use them to stage my photo. Do you like staged photos of cards or do you think it's distracting?

Anyway. . .remember a few days ago, I posted a tutorial on a multi-flap card?
Click Here for the tutorial.

Well, the front flap opens slightly different than the one on the tutorial. Rather than a jacket, I created the flap to go across the card base. I think I like it better this way. Actually, you can create the flap opening in any manner that you want. Be creative.

I water-colored the images using Twinkling H2O. . .they're iridescent watercolors . . .mica powder is added to the watercolor similar to Pearl Ex. It gives the colors a shimmery appearance. You can't really see it in the photo. It's fun to use because you can mix different colors . . . I love the effect.

Hey. . .I bought my last order of Stampin Up stuff as a demonstrator. I didn't sign the IDA. . .for those who aren't Stampin Up demonstrators. . .SU has a new policy that restricts demonstrators in several areas, especially for those who blog. I'm not going to get into it but I didn't sign the contract so September was my last month as a demonstrator.

One of the stuff that I bought is the Autumn Splendor. I love this set. The images are pretty.

Anyway check out the tutorial and try it out.

Hope y'all have a beautiful Friday!
