Cricut Artfully Sent Fall Birthday Swing Card

I have several friends who have birthdays in October. They are all the oldest child in the family like I am and we share many personality traits, likes, and dislikes. This is one of my birthday cards for an October friend.  We're all turning 65, going on 18 (ok, maybe 28). A recent TV news report said that we share genetic similarities with our friends. I can see that with mine!

I chose this reversible paper from the CTMH Scaredy Cat paper pack so that the leaf would be cut so that it would be orange. I outlined it with gold glitter gel and tried something different with a swing card. I added a panel of Scaredy Cat gypsy colored paper framed with gold glitter paper, gluing it behind the first fold so that I could add a larger sentiment behind it.  I added a strip of Sunset Chevron Washi Tape to the bottom.

Here's the page (p.42) used to make the card using Cricut Artfully Sent. I didn't include the inside panel shown on this page.

I combined three sentiments from the stamp set Your Own Kind of Wonderful.

A lovely Fall card. Love where you don't know exactly what's behind the panel, like, do I got to open door # 1, door #2 or door #3.

So glad you joined us at Die Cut Divas.

I love the use of patterned paper instead of an image, great effect. Thanks for joining us at Diecut Divas Change of Season Challenge.
