You are Wonderful Card Made with the NEW Rooted in Nature Bundle

This card is based on one of the Make and Take projects I made at OnStage last month!  I actually did not get to finish the one we were making that day, so I took the pieces with me to finish at home.  Then I decided to mix it up a bit when new goodies from the new catalog arrived!  This card uses a new bundle called the Rooted in Nature Bundle, as well as coordinating Designer Series Paper called Nature’s Poem DSP.  Both items are part of a new suite of products called the Nature’s Poem Suite.  This whole suite has imagery and colors of trees, leaves, and other images of nature.  It’s definitely one of my favorite new suites!

 

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Sahara Sand card base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

DSP Background Strips:  1-1/4 x 5-1/4 inches

Whisper White sentiment piece:  1-1/8 x 3 inches

Mint Macaron/Grapefruit Grove Leaves:  1-1/2 x 3 inches

Banner DSP piece:  3/4 x 2 inches

 

For this card, I used Snail Adhesive to adhere the background strips and leaves to the card base.  The sentiment and banner piece were adhered using Stampin’ Dimensionals, to give this card a little height and texture!  It’s embellished with a button from the True Gentleman Buttons, as well as a Linen Thread bow.

Be sure to check out the entire Nature’s Poem Suite in the new catalog when you receive it!  (It can be found on pages 142-144.  This is sure to be a very popular collection of products!

Thanks for visiting today!

Thoughts and Prayers Friendship Card

Thoughts and Prayers is one of the first stamp sets I bought when I became a demonstrator!  I love the simplicity of the tree and floral images, as well as the beautiful sentiments!  (The sentiment on this card is actually not from the Thoughts & Prayers set though. It’s from the So Many Shells set!) I have used Thoughts & Prayers for many, many occasions, including birthdays, weddings, Mother’s Day, friendship, thank yous, and of course, sympathy cards. This set comes in both clear mount and wood mount, and would make a great addition to your collection!

To make this card, I cut an extra top layer, then used a square from the Layering Squares Thinlits to make a “mask”. This mask was placed over the final top layer, so that the whole layer was covered except for the square that had been cut out. I then used a Stampin’ Sponge to sponge Crumb Cake ink all inside the square to make the background behind the tree. Once it was completely filled in, I removed the mask, stamped the tree and sentiment both in Soft Suede ink, and then added Clear Wink of Stella Glitter to the leaves of the tree!
