I guess I’ve been in the mood to make “Thank You” cards lately. Maybe that’s a hint that I need to send them more. This card I created for the SCCSC138 sketch challenge on Stampin’ Connection. Take a look:
- Stamps: Blooming with Kindness, French Foliage, Woodgrain
- Card Stock: Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Very Vanilla
- DSP: Comfort Café
- Ink: Summer Starfruit, Early Espresso, Crumb Cake
- Accessories: Summer Starfruit Stitched Satin Ribbon, Window Frames Framelits, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Paper Piercer, Stampin’ Pierce Mat, Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Glimmer Brads
This card was quick and fun! I started off with a 5-1/2” x 8-1/2” piece of Crumb Cake card stock and scored it at 4-1/4”. Then I stamped the Woodgrain background image onto the card front in Crumb Cake ink. This just gives a nice subtle background pattern to the card. Next I cut three pieces of Comfort Café DSP 3/4” x 3-3/4”. I adhered these strips onto the right side of the card front. Then I wrapped a piece of Summer Starfruit Stitched Satin ribbon around the card front and tied it into a bow.
Next I grabbed a scrap of Very Vanilla card stock and stamped the leaf from French Foliage onto the card stock in Summer Starfruit ink. I stamped the greeting from Blooming with Kindness on top of the leaf in Early Espresso ink. Then I cut out the greeting with the label from the Apothecary Accents Framelits. I used the second smallest Window Frames framelit on a scrap of Early Espresso card stock to cut out the mat.
I adhered the stamped Very Vanilla label onto the Early Espresso window frame. Then I used the Essentials Paper Piercing Pack, Paper Piercer, and Stampin’ Pierce mat to add the pierced holes around the Early Espresso window frame shape. I adhered this layer onto the card front with a Stampin’ Dimensional.
Finally I used the Paper Piercer again to add the three holes in the upper left hand corner of the card front and added a gold Glimmer Brad into each hole. The gold Glimmer Brad doesn’t look too far off from the Summer Starfruit color. That’s it!
