Real Leaves Buckle Card...Stampin' Addicts Fancy Fold #3 (FF3)

This card incorporates this week's Fancy Fold Technique Challenge on Stampin' Addicts...the Buckle Card as well as SACC68 last week's SA Color Challenge which was Rich Razzleberry, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie and Daffodil Delight.  It also is a preview of next week's regular Technique Challenge which will be Stamping with Real/Fresh Leaves.  I'll have some tips on that next week, so you'll see this card again then.

There are variations of the buckle card, but my card measurements are as follows:

Pumpkin Pie Base Layer: 6-3/4 inches X 5-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4 on the 6-3/4 inch side
Cherry Cobbler Layer: typical 4 inches X 5-14 inches
Very Vanilla Image Layer: typical 3-3/4 X 5 inches
Daffodil Delight Belt:  1-1/2 inches X 5 inches, scored at 1 inch on the 5 inch side

To properly place the word window, simply push the punch (assuming you have the old black style punch) in as far as you can and have about 1/4 inch showing on the outside/left side of the cardstock and punch.

Love the buckle! This is a beautiful card and the leaf stamping turned out awesome. Great fall color combo too.
