Autumn Colors, Autumn Leaves

 I hope everyone had a lovely Labor Day weekend! I took a little time  to create two cards for the JustRite Stampers Friday Challenge. This time around our challenge is to make a card with more than one fold. I don't usually make multi-fold cards,but boy I had a blast! I recently received a JustRite order from their fall release and have fallen in love with the Shabby Chic Autumn Leaves set. You may be seeing a lot of this set in the near future!

How over the top is this?LOL!My idea was to make a card that looks like beautiful Autumn leaves cascading down from the trees. The card construction is actually called a cascading card. I used a tutorial from this awesome blog. I stamped four each of the leaves in the Shabby Chic Autumn Leaves set in different ink colors on various card stocks and cut them out. I arranged them until I was satisfied and adhered them with ATG tape and pop dots to add dimension in certain places. Here are a few more pictures so you can see it from different angles:
