I hope you all who celebrate, had a lovely Thanksgiving and spent some wonderful time with your beloved ones. Thanksgiving is not a holiday in Hungary, but it doesn’t mean I cannot feel gratitude daily for all the blessings I have: loving family, supporting husband, food on our table, and difficulties which we are able to handle. I am also so thankful for our crafty community, the kind words I get from you. Thank you for joining me on this creative journey! To celebrate, I have a cute set to show you: a card and coordinating tag, which is perfect on its own for a little note of kindness. I used Pretty Pink Posh goodies to create them.
First I stamped and coloured the PPP Fall envelopes and a few extra sunflowers using Spectrum Noir Illustrator and Classique markers: EB7, EB5, EB3, RB2, GB5, CT4, CT2, CG3, CG2, CG05, GB3, GB1, GB05, GY05. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.
For the card I created my own patterned paper on a kraft cardstock strip: I stamped the sunflower image from Fall Envelopes several times with brown hybrid ink, and used the same colours as above to bring them to life. I love how the colours are muted on kraft cardstock, I need to do this more often. I did dome brown ink blending on the edges for a vintage look, I gave it a brown and a green mat and adhered it to a white A2 sized note card.
I mounted the envelope in the middle with 3D foam squares and added a stacked Grateful Script sentiment. The last layer I cut from green glitter cardstock and adhered on top. It looks like chipboard, so pretty! I also stamped a “for you” sentiment from the Simple sentiment stamp set under it, with brown ink.
I embellished the card with a few Pistachio Pearls, used a clear shimmer pen on the middle of the flowers and added glossy accents too, to make them shiny.
For the tag I created a card base from folded cardstock and the Fall envelopes coordinating die. So easy and looks super cute. I cannot wait to make more of this for even lunch box notes for the kids. I used a Thanks Script die for the sentiment, cut it from the same green glitter cardstock as above, so they match.
I wish you liked my inspiration today and will pop in again tomorrow for more!
