An orange summer garden card (Magnolia image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I am having a terrible time trying to take nice, natural photos of my cards at the moment as it's winter here in Australia and not a sun ray in sight! So making the best of it for now and may take a better photo when and if the sun comes out tomorrow (I sound like Orphan Annie don't I haha).

I used a lovely Magnolia image for this card and a Lawn Fawn sun die which is one of my faves. This card is a really easy shape to create but I like how it looks. Keep the fold at the top then evenly cut both sides on an angle to make the triangle leaving enough gap at the top so the card still has a steady fold. It stays up nicely still too.
