Stop and Smell the Flowers - Magnolia-licious 'Autumn/Fall Colours'


It's time for a new challenge at the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog.  The theme this time is 'Autumn/Fall Colours.'  I love this theme because I just luvvv the autumn colour palette.  Hope you'll play along with us.  Hop over to the Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog to get complete details on the challenge and how you can join in.  And don't forget to check out the cards/projects that the DT gals have created to inspire you.

Here's the card that I've created for the challenge.

This is a swing card or some call it a flip-flop card.  The centre panel swings or flips over.

And I've added another image on the other side of the swinging panel.

I wanted to use my octagon-shaped (the shape of a stop sign) die for the swinging panel, but the size of the die that I have was actual too small so I ended up cutting it out by hand.  If you yourself want to make a swing card, you can use any shape die instead and I've got a tutorial HERE if you're interested.

Close-ups of the Magnolia Stamps images being featured:

- Under Construction Tilda from the World Wide Web Collection 2015
(oops...I think I made a mistake in colouring.  I took that thing behind Tilda as a wooden work horse, but I think it's suppose to be a traffic barrier.  Oh well...sigh)

- Tilda With Fantasy Flowers from the Lost and Found Collection 2014
