Hi friends!During this season of gratitude towards the Giver of all things, I thought it would be appropriate to take time to thank those people who have touched our lives and made us better for it too.
We encouraged them to think about who they could give the card to...someone who had helped them, who had been kind to them, etc. When they knew they would be giving them to someone special, they were all eager to make another one to share their thankfulness.
Many moons ago, I was a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. So, as you can imagine, I have a ton of leftover materials and retired stamp sets sitting around just waiting to be played with. This set was my first one and I was thrilled to design this super simple card for the girls.
Stampin' Up! Stamps, green, mustard and white cardstock, brown, pumpkin and yellow ink pads, a paper crimper, paper cutter and adhesive.
Start by cutting your mustard colored cardstock to 8 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches. Cut the green to 5 x 3 3/4 inches. Cut the white to 4 3/4 x 3 1/4 inches.
See the tool up in the right corner of the supplies picture? That is a paper crimper and was the hit of the crafting session. It turns a plain piece of paper into a corrugated texture element for cards.
Stamp the main part of the flower with pumpkin colored ink onto the white cardstock. Stamp the center with yellow. Stamp the spots with brown. Also, stamp the "thanks" sentiment with brown (mine looks more like a purple in the picture...maybe it's time for new ink pads).
To assemble, fold the mustard paper in half. Using an adhesive strip, stick the green corrugated paper to the mustard. Then put some adhesive on the white stamped piece and adhere it to the green paper.
