Happy Monday!!! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and weekend! We got to spend lots of time with both sides of the family. It was amazing and Claire enjoyed all the attention. Wish me luck today as I am her only entertainment. 🙂 Now that Thanksgiving is over, it’s time to prepare for the next holiday!!! I created this cute and simple Festive Farmhouse fun card for just the occasion!
I’m all about quick and simple cards this year because I just don’t seem to have much time lately now with little Miss Claire in our lives! 🙂 This card also uses every bit of the 12″ x 12″ sheet of Designer Paper because it is a 4″ x 3″ piece! Bonus!
I started with a Cherry Cobbler card base. Next, I took a piece of the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper (4″ x 3″) and layered it onto a piece of Crumb Cake (4-1/4″ x 3-1/4″). Then I added this piece to the card front. I took a piece of the Striped Burlap Trim and cut the ends to a point, making the points opposite for each end. Just add a little bit of Snail Adhesive to the designer paper and press the ribbon into it. It won’t be held super strong at this point but that’s okay. Adding the greeting over the top will hold it much better.
For the greeting, I used the Timeless Tidings Stamp Set. The kit is amazing but the coordinating stamp set is SUPER versatile. Check out these samples using it here and here! The greeting was stamped in Cherry Cobbler Ink and punched out with the 2″ Circle Punch. Then I layered it onto a Cherry Cobbler Scallop Circle. The scallop was die cut with the Layering Circle Framelits. The framelits create smooth and scalloped circles but I used my punch for the smooth one to go faster! If you only have the framelits, it would work perfectly! I added the greeting to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals for a little texture and to go smooth over the ribbon!
