1.   Take the 12 x 12 piece of cardstock and score at 3, 6 and 9 inches.

2.   For the top of the card- take the punch and go all along the top.

3.   For the bottom- take the circle punch and center it in each  panel.  I punched it a little less than half the circle.

4.  From there cuts your mats.  I didn't put sizes because you make want yours smaller.

5.  Emboss and ink the last mat.

6.  Place your die cuts or other decorations on the card however you want.   Use Wink of Stella pen to add some bling and your are all set.

Happy Fall Y'all!
