30 Day Gratitude Card Challenge: Day 19

Good morning!  Boy is cold, I enjoyed our nice mild weather we had yesterday and then was smacked in the face this morning on my run with a reminder that it is indeed fall and winter is coming.  I decided to do another combo for today's gratitude challenge card and mix it with the Paper Craft Crew sketch challenge for another soft wintry Thank You card. I had the Winter Frost Speciality Designer Series Paper sitting out on my desk from another project I was working on and just knew I could come up with a simple and pretty card. 

The card base is Smoky Slate and I added a layer of Pool Party cardstock that was embossed with the Big Shot and the Stylish Stripes Embossing Folder.  Next I took a piece of Island Indigo Textured cardstock and used it as a mat for a strip of the Winter Frost Speciality Designer Series Paper.  I wrapped a piece of Silver 1/8" ribbon around the DSP piece and tucked a piece of Silver Glimmer paper that was punched out with the Label Bracket punch for some sparkle.

The greeting is from the Another Thank You Photopolymer stamp set and was stamped in Island Indigo ink on Whisper White cardstock before being matted with a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock.  I used dimensionals to attach the greeting and the final sparkly touch is a Frosted Finished Embellishment attached with a glue dot on the bottom right corner.
I have to admit this card came together in about 5 minutes (which was good since I was running behind and didn't start working on this until 10:30 last night and needed something quick before I fell asleep.  It just goes to show you can make beautiful and heartfelt cards in no time.  I love it!!
Hope this gives you some inspiration, you could very easily change out the greeting and make this a Christmas card that people would love to receive.
Happy stamping!

Pin It!
