Thankful Card

 Hello Friends,

Diane here to share a my newest card, "Thankful".  The die I used for this card is so fun and cute.  It can be used for any occasion.  A "Welcome home" card for a loved one, a "Congratulations on your new home" card, add a pumpkin or two for a "Fall" card or a "Christmas tree" and it becomes a Christmas card.

This is a lovely die from Impressions Obsessions called "Saltbox Houses" and it's available at Dies R Us.

Come see what I created:


Card Recipe:

This card measures 4 1/4 x  5 1/2 (A2 sized).  I began with a white 110 lb card base measuring 4 1/4 x 11 and scored it in half at 5 1/2.

Next, I decided on the colors and designer paper to use.  You can use any background paper your heart desires. I chose a colorful floral pattern.  Next, cut the die out several times in matching colors.  I cut red, blue, yellow, grey, etc.  Then save and place all the pieces on your work station.

Next, I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Circle Frames to cut a white circle background for my houses. You can cut this out in ivory if that matches better with your paper selection. The "Lawn Fawn" die cuts two pieces.  I just used some tape on the back to adhere the center circle to the scalloped frame. 

Then, I put together the houses on the center front of my scalloped circle.  This takes a little bit of time to place and adhere all the tiny pieces together, but it's well worth the final result.  A tweezers is helpful in this step.

Once the houses are in place. It's time to stamp the sentiment.  I used a "Thankful" sentiment. I stamped it using black Momenta ink on yellow cardstock.  You can use any sentiment stamp you desire.

Then the last step is adding a little bling.  I chose to add some Graphic 45 gold flat back pearls, but you can add Nuvo drops, flowers, rhinestones, or sequins.

That's it. An easy, fun, quick card.
