Hi friends, my favorite time of the year is November – dry cold-ish weather, cozy clothes and hot soups, fall colors everywhere, and hearts filled with gratitude. What more can a girl ask for? To celebrate the coming of my favorite season, I created two Thanks cards using the October 2019 card kit by Simon Says Stamp. As usual both these are easy cards, not too difficult to mass produce and yet beautiful in every way.
On both these, I did the following steps with a little variation for each card:
Heat embossed the large floral cluster on sturdy scrapbook paper / patterned paper panels. Only one of these I ink blended on all the sides.
Added die cut sentiment – layered several of these together to create a dimensional die cut sentiment.
Embellished with sequins, glitter and mounted on card base.
On this one, I used the Steel Navy embossing powder and heat embossed the image as well as one smaller sentiment on a patterned paper rectangle panel. On top of this, I added ‘Thanks’ die cut sentiment. This die also came in the same card kit. To give it some dimension, I die cut it several times and adhered these together using multi medium matte glue. Finally, I sprinkled some matching flat backed gems to finish off this card and mounted the panel on top of a pre-made cardbase.
For this one, I did something similar. Except, I did ink blending on the sides of the patterned paper panel using Hot Lips Simon Says Stamp ink. Sentiment was created same as the above card. For some added interest, I added some embossing ink on the sides of the panel and heat embossed using same gold embossing powder. Also, for the flower centers, I added bunch of chunky glitter pieces using multi medium matte glue. Lastly, I mounted it on a pre-made cardbase and called it done.
