I used the Stampin’ Up! Winter Woods stamp set from the upcoming 2018 Holiday Catalog to create a clean and simple thank you card to share with you today.
My card design was inspired by CAS(E) this Sketch #286.
I started by sponging Daffodil Delight and Grapefruit Gove inks over a Whisper White card stock panel with Sponge Brayers. Then I inked the tree line image from the Winter Woods stamp set (available Sept 5) in Soft Suede ink, stamped it on scrap paper and then stamped it on the sponged panel.
I stamped the sentiment from the Rooted in Nature stamp set in Early Espresso ink on the sponged panel and then adhered it to a panel of Grapefruit Grove card stock with SNAIL I adhered the layered panel to an Early Espresso card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I stamped the leaf images from the Rooted in Nature stamp set in Grapefruit Grove ink on a panel of Whisper White card stock, then sponged over them with Daffodil Delight ink using a Sponge Brayer. I cut the leaves with the coordinating Nature’s Roots Framelits die and adhered them with Glue Dots to the card front. I added a single Rhinestone Basic Jewel to the top leaf to finish the card front.
I stamped the leaf image from the Rooted in Nature stamp set in Grapefruit Grove, Daffodil Delight and Early Espresso inks across a panel of Whisper White card stock inside the card.
