I'll give you some tips on how to make this card, but first.

Autism facts

12. The lifelong cost per individual with Autism is estimated between $3-5 Million Dollars.  Wow!

Autism Matters Blog Hop for April Awareness  Jo Anne Hewins

The card base is Thick Whisper White 4 1/4 x 11 and scored at 5 1/2.  Use your bone folder to burnish the fold.

The colors associated with Autism awareness are red, yellow, and blue.  I used designer paper for this.  The Real Red and Daffodil Delight come from the Tutti Frutti 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper stack.  Pacific Point is from the Eastern Palace Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Each piece is 1 7/8 x 4 1/4.  You might need to trim the edge just a little with you snips.

Stamp the pens from the Crafting Forever stamp set in Memento Black on Whisper White.  Use the Layering Ovals Framelits to cut this out.  The Daffodil Delight scalloped oval is cut with the same dies.  Color one of the pens with the light and dark Daffodil Delight, the light Cherry Cobbler, and the light Night of Navy Blends.  Attach the ovals with dimensionals to the card.

I cut an additional 1/2 inch strip of the Real Red paper to a length of 3 1/4.  Notch the left end using the Tailored Tag Punch and attach the strip with dimensionals.  The sentiment is from the stamp set So Many Shells.  It is on the Retiring List.  Stamp this in Pacific Point ink and trim around it closely.  Attach to the red strip.

The finish off the card add Enamel Shapes in Real Red, Daffodil Delight, and Pacific Point.

Autism Matters inside of card

For the inside of the card I finished the statement from So Many Shells.  Stamp another pen on a Whisper White scrap, color it, cut it out, and glue to the card.  Blends would bleed through to the back of the card.
