Stampin’ Up! Thankful Thoughts

I’ve made a few cards lately with a similar color combination to today’s card.  You can see them here, here, and here.  I think you can easily say that the new Berry Burst color is one of my favorites!

My card today starts off with Berry Burst cardstock.  I then matted a panel of Lemon Lime Twist cardstock on Whisper White cardstock and adhered it offset on the card.  I took a pattern from the Color Theory DSP and matted it on Whisper White cardstock and offset it the other way on the card.

I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and Layering Squares Framelits to cut out (what I’ll call) a picture frame.  I wound some Pool Party Solid Baker’s Twine around it.

I inked up the sentiment from the Thankful Thoughts stamp set in Lemon Lime Twist ink.  I then dabbed a sponge with Pool Party ink just on the edges of the stamp.  I cut it down and matted it on Lemon Lime Twist cardstock.


My card today was inspired by the challenge this week at Global Design Project.
