Before I get into today’s card, if you happen to be seeing this bright and early, be sure to swing by my Facebook page today at 10:00 am EST. I’ll be going live showing how I made yesterday’s Trick or Treat card using the new Stampin’ Blends!
If you miss it live, the video will stay posted so still swing by and check it out!
Today’s card is a quick, but sweet “Thinking of You” card which is really a thank you card. Customers who placed orders this past week received this card in the mail with a message on a Post-It Note, leaving it blank for them to fill in and re-mail.
I recently bought the Colorful Seasons stamp set when it was on sale earlier this month, but didn’t have the coordinating thinlits….yet 😉
So I had to create a card that showcased the stamp set without the need to cut any leaves out. Easier said than done and I, once again, have such an appreciation for thinlits/framelits.
My card starts off with Crushed Curry cardstock. I took a panel of Whisper White cardstock (which will be layered on Pumpkin Pie cardstock) and created my falling leaves using the Colorful Seasons stamp set. I took the smallest leaf and inked it up with Crushed Curry and then sort of tapped the edges on some Peekaboo Peach ink.
I did the same technique with the bigger leaf on a separate piece of Whisper White cardstock. I inked up the outline leaf image in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold embossing powder, and heat embossed it. I cut this one out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits and then matted a Gold Foil Sheet square behind it.
I inked up the sentiment in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with Gold embossing powder, and heat embossed that as well. I wound around some Gold Thread behind the square and adhered it to the card.
Here’s the bunch of cards that went out in the mail. It honestly brings me so much joy! Remember what I always say – Don’t hoard the cards – mail them!
