Autumn Leaves & Santa's Retreat Bendy fold

Hello everyone, today I have 2 Bendy Cards to share with you all!  If you would like to see how I made my these bendy cards, I do have a video tutorial here on my blog! 

This 1st card is called "Autumn Leaves" I thought it was perfect for this card, as it has lots of leaves and autumn colors on it.

I used TONS of CottageCutz dies for my card here lots are from the Harvest Release found Here
Build a Grapevine Wreath/ for the leaves
CottageCutz Fall Tree this is on the front of the card.

I LOVE Acorn Owl, as he is super CUTE and Easy to make. I also LOVE the Hedgehog Mini, and sunflower Mini. I will be making another Autumn Leaves Card, just have to design it a little different from this one.

Most pieces were distressed and others were colored with copics. For the Hedgehog I used Viva Pearl Pen for the eye and the nose.The mushrooms,leaves and grass were all dusted. The tree's were cut out with colored card stock. and then I added some flower soft to those, to give it a fall look. My Acorn Owl was colored with copics.

Sentiments are all StampinUp!

I made a pocket out of the fence border, and stuck a love tag on the left side stamped with a sentiment. 

Santa's Retreat Bendy Fold Card

I absolutely LOVE making these Bendy Fold cards! they are so addicting and super fun to make!!! 

Lots of CottageCutz dies used on this one here!!!

I started this card by cutting a TON of these tree's from the Penguin die. I wanted the look of a forest for Santa's Retreat!  I figured it was the perfect name for this card, as its all about Santa and a relaxing place for him!!

Of course Santa needs some friends at his retreat, or around his retreat, so I decided to use the darling CottageCutz Reindog too, he is super CUTE!!!

For the inside middle, I figured I would use Santa's Chair and have his boots , jacket and cap there too. And to top it all off, I used dear Sweet Santa Peeker on the top!

I really had a LOT of FUN making this card. This one did take me awhile to create, as I had to cut sooo many tree's and cutz and coloring, but in the end it was well worth the effort I put into it.

Thank you all for looking and have a lovely day!!! OOoooo and if you make one of these I WANT To SEE it, so be sure to leave me a message and link to your card!!
hugs to all,
