30 Day Gratitude Challenge: Day 5

Good morning!  Sometimes when we have an awesome seasonal catalog it is easy to forget about the great products in the Annual Catalog and they can get a little lonely.  During last month’s card class we made this beautiful card using a mix of annual and holiday catalog products and some fun colors for a fall themed card that doesn’t have a lot of layers but still has great texture.

I started with Thick Whisper White cardstock for the cardbase (this new cardstock if fabulous and perfect for cardbases where our traditional whisper white cardstock is a little thin) and stamped the greeting from the Suite Seasons stamp set in Early Espresso ink and then I took a sponge dauber and Rich Razzleberry ink and sponged over the greeting in circular patterns to provide a background for the greeting.  Next we took the Gold Wink of Stella Pen and tapped it over the cardstock for a little gold splatter that is beautiful in real life.  Along the right side we added strips of paper (Early Espresso (from the Neutrals Designer Series Paper Stack), Rich Razzle Berry (from the Petals and Paisleys Speciality Designer Series Paper), and Gold Glimmer Paper.

One of my favorite stamps from the annual catalog is the Vintage Leaves set and I stamped the leaf in Early Espresso ink on Old Olive cardstock, cut it out with the Leaflets Framelits and the Big Shot.  Next I crumpled the cardstock to add texture and flattened it out and then sponged it with Rich Razzleberry ink so the leaf has lots of dimension.  To attach the leaf I added some Mono Liquid Glue along the center of the leaf and attached it so the edges of the leaf could stand up off the cardstock for dimension.  The final touch was to tie a bow using some Linen Thread and attached it to the base of the leaf.

This card is doesn’t use a lot of supplies so you could make a lot of them and not spend a lot and lets the embellishments really shine (it’s also nice and mailable which is perfect for the post office!)

Below are easy ordering links for the products used on today’s card:

Enjoy your Saturday!
