Happy Autumn

Hello, I have made this card for the Card a Day Blog today, and the card is super simple, because I love simple.  To make this card, you will need to do a little prep work to the card blank, other than that, this card does not take long to make.  


1 card blank, folded in half, cut off about an inch off to make it asymmetrical at the bottom.
1 card mat cut smaller than the card blank itself.
felt leaves, acorns, and pumpkins.  The ones I had came from American Crafts Holiday House Fall collection.  This is a discounted item in many stores, so the best place I can say to find them is either on Ebay or make your own , using brown, green , red, orange, and yellow felt.  It can be cut from a die cutting machine (manual or electronic), punch, or freehand.
Gel pen (white) and a black fine tipped marker.

Glue the mat on the inside, and glue small felt leaves, acorns, and pumpkins at the bottom of the card as shown.  Next, glue bigger leaves, acorns, or pumpkins on top of he card.  Write or print out the words, "Happy Autumn" on the card.  for a more decorative touch, doodle little dashes on squiggly line around the edge on the inside and outside of the card, as also shown in the picture.  This is a fun card for the kids to make, and you ca change out the felt pieces for different times of the year.

Enjoy, and Be blessed, everyday.
