Cricut Artbooking Happy Autumn card

Hello, friends!



Today's card just might be one of my all time favorites. I might not ever give this one away! One of the great things about this card is that it is super simple to make! Don't you just love those kind of projects!

My card is made using the Artbooking cartridge and the Happy Autumn stamp set. This is another example of matching my ribbon perfectly using color ready seam binding and a marker. I hope you guys don't get sick of this technique because I will be using it a lot!

I used Twilight, Cocoa, Goldrush, and Colonial White CTMH cardstock.
I used Twilight CTMH ink.
I stamped the inside with the Count Your blessings stamp set and colored it with CTMH markers.
