Gather together & give thanks…..that greeting warms my heart. I love spending time with family and friends and we always need a reminder to give thanks for the amazing blessings we have in our lives. This is just another reason Thanksgiving is my 2nd favorite holiday behind Easter!
This card has been a big favorite at all of my classes and of course it is….it has a flower!!! 🙂 You all know I love flowers!
I started with a Crushed Curry card base. Next I took a piece of Early Espresso (5-1/4″ x 2-1/2″) and ripped along one edge for a rough look. Be sure to rip slowly in small amounts and not just one full rip down the entire piece. I layered on a piece of the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper (5-1/4″ x 2″). I added this piece to some Very Vanilla measuring 5-1/4″ x 4″. Next I stamped the greeting from the Painted Harvest Stamp Set in Old Olive and the dots in Lemon Lime Twist. You could stamp the dots at the end after putting it all together or you can do it now. Next, I added this to the card front!
Now for the focal point of that amazing flower! I used the Painted Harvest Stamp Set and coordinating Leaf Punch (Bundle and Save 10%). The flower was stamped in Crushed Curry Ink (full strength both time) and Early Espresso for the center. I did fuzzy cut the flower which isn’t my favorite but sure looks amazing! The leaves were stamped in Lemon Lime Twist first and then Old Olive on top. Using the Leaf Punch, I punched them out! For adding it to the card front, I used Stampin’ Dimensionals to secure the leaves to the back of the flower and then to the front of the card! To finish off the card, I added a few Crushed Curry Enamel Shapes! I just love it!!!
