It’ s Monday and Time for a New Challenge at The Cheerful Stamp Pad.

Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends and followers and Happy Columbus Day to my American friends and followers and to all others Just have a fabulous Monday!!!
The Cheerful Stamp Pad is offering a Guest Design Team position for the winner of the Fall Leaves Challenge, it’s a great chance to “test the waters” of being on a design team, so get your fall colours together and paint us a fabulous project. I wanted to do a new type fold, I think I have made one before but it is super easy and looks really neat. Here is what I came up with.
This is the card when it is folded for mailing. I used a sweet house mouse gliding to the ground on a leaf. The patterned paper is from Bo Bunny and the rust dots are metal dots I bought at Joann’s about 5 years ago. How I love to hoard cute things I might not be able to buy again.
This is how the card stand up, although I don’t have a sentiment on it yet it will be the same size as the front image. I have a few Fall birthdays coming and this will come in handy.
I hope you can see how the Z fold works. It is a 4 1/4 X 11 piece of cardstock scored at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2 the rest is up to you.
Closer look at the  metal dots and the super cute patterned paper.

I would like to enter this in the Gruffies and Guests Halloween colour challnge

Now it’s your turn to show is your Fall Leaves, head over to the  Cheerful Stamp Pad challenge Blog and see what the rest of the design team has for your inspiration.
Thanks for looking today and have a great Fall Day!!!
