Autumn Thanks

Here is the second card from the September Make and Take. Are you ready to get inky?

  • Soft Sky card stock 5-1/2" x 8-1/2", scored at 4-1/4"
  • Mossy Meadow card stock 3" x 4-1/4"
  • Very Vanilla card stock 2-1/4" x 4-1/4"
  • Very Vanilla card stock 2" x 4-1/4"
  • Snapshot DSP 1" x 3"
  • Early Espresso Taffeta Ribbon 18"
  • Stamps: Seasonally Scattered, Everything Eleanor
  • Ink: Versamark, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Cajun Craze
  • Accessories: Clear embossing powder, Embossing Buddy, Heat Tool, Stampin' Sponges, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Stampin' Dimensionals, Scallop Edge Border Punch

Start off by folding the Soft Sky card stock on the score line. Then run the card front through the Big Shot in the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. Use Paper Snips to trim one end of the DSP into a dove-tail shape and glue it onto the left side of the card front so the bottom of the banner is about 1/2" up from the bottom of the card.

Now take the small piece of Very Vanilla card stock and rub the Embossing Buddy all over. Stamp the image from Seasonally Scattered onto the card stock in Versamark ink. Cover the stamped image with clear embossing powder and tap off the excess. Heat it with the Heat Tool until its nice and shiny. Now take your Stampin' Sponges and sponge on ink working from right to left starting with Crushed Curry ink, then Pumpkin Pie, then Cajun Craze. Now take a paper towel and wipe the ink off of the greeting. Admire your wonderful stamping.

Now glue this onto the larger piece of Very Vanilla card stock. Now use the Scallop Edge Border Punch on one long edge of the Mossy Meadow card stock. Glue the greeting layer onto the top of the Mossy Meadow card stock. Wrap the Early Espresso Taffeta ribbon around the panel and tie it into a bow. Now glue the panel onto the card front with a few Stampin' Dimensionals. 

To dress up the inside a bit use the swirl stamp from Everything Eleanor and stamp it a couple times in Crushed Curry ink. 

That's it!
