I used the Stampin’ Up! stamp set called Truly Grateful and a little of the Adventure Bound DSP stack to create my card to share today.
One quick reminder…the Stampin’ Up! retiring list will be published tomorrow. I’ll be posting a link to it on my blog, so be sure to stop back to see if any of your favorites are on the list. Once the list is published, the card stocks, inks and accessories are available only while supplies last so be sure to shop early for the best selection!
My card design was inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #182.
I started by adhering a panel of Sahara Sand card stock to a panel of Island Indigo card stock with SNAIL, then to a Basic Gray card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I adhered a panel from the Adventure Bound DSP Stack to a panel of Island Indigo card stock with SNAIL, then I wrapped a strand of Linen Thread around the panel, pulled the ends through a Basic Metal Button and tied a knot in the thread.
I added a Glue Dot under the button to help hold it securely to the card front, then adhered the layered panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the sentiment from the Truly Grateful stamp set in Island Indigo ink on a Sahara Sand panel. I adhered the stamped panel to a panel of Island Indigo ink with SNAIL, then adhered the sentiment to the card front with SNAIL on the left side and a Stampin’ Dimensional on the right.
I adhered a leftover strip of the Adventure Bound DSP to a strip of Island Indigo card stock, then to a panel of Sahara Sand card stock inside the card.
You can find a complete list of supplies, including card stock cuts, at the very bottom of this post.
