I made this card for the FabFri06 and the SCS WT400-Thanks To… Challenges. Here is the Fab Friday Color Challenge:
And here is my card:
Here is a list of what you will need to complete this card:
- Lovely as a Tree stamp set
- Blooming with Kindness stamp set
- Argyle Embossing Folder
- 1 1/4″ Circle Punch
- 3/4″ Circle Punch
- Midnight Muse 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon
- Stampin’ Dimensionals
- Crumb Cake Card Stock
- Midnight Muse Card Stock
- Stamping Sponges
- Crumb Cake Ink
- Midnight Muse Ink
- Cajun Craze Ink
- More Mustard Ink
I started by stamping the tree line image from the Lovely as a Tree stamp set in Midnight Muse on Crumb Cake card stock. Then I punched a 3/4″ circle from a Post-It Note and placed the Post-It over the tree line image where I wanted the sun and sponged the sun in More Mustard. I placed the circle punch over the sponged sun and sponged the rest of the sky in Cajun Craze. Then I lightly sponged Midnight Muse over the lower part. I also took my Midnight Muse Stampin’ Write Marker and used the fine point to extend out the grass area a bit to the edges of my paper. Then I ran my background sheet of Crumb Cake card stock through the Big Shot with the Argyle Embossing folder and I sponged Crumb Cake ink around the edges. I adhered the tree line image directly to the embossed background. Then I tied a knot using two pieces of Midnight Muse 3/8″ Stitched Satin Ribbon and attached that on the lower part of the background. I stamped the Thank You sentiment from the Blooming with Kindness stamp set in Midnight Muse on Crumb Cake card stock and I punched it out using the 1 1/4″ Circle Punch. I lightly sponged the edges with Midnight Muse and placed it over the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it.
Kept it pretty clean and simple today. Wanted to also say a big THANK YOU to all of our veterans today!
This card is gorgeous! I love the colors.
Wonderful job sponging! Love the autumn sun peeking through the trees and the Argyle folder is a great back drop to your scene! Thanks for sharing with us at Fab Friday!
