Good Monday to you All! Well, it is Monday, but, hey, a new week ahead. Florence is waning and I hope all of you in her path are recovering.
Before we get started with today’s card, just a quick word about the Stampin’ Up Clearance Rack….you can now get Fast Fuse, both dispenser and refills for 1/2 price as long as supplies last. The Clearance Rack was refreshed today, so don’t wait if you want some bargains.
My card today was inspired by the Freshly Made Sketches challenge
And it also follows the color challenge of Cupcake Inspirations
I chose the brown and green, not the football theme.
Here is the card I created. The couple who will receive this love the woods and the outdoors, so the Woodland Textured Embossing Folder was a no-brainer! In fact, the marriage proposal occured in a deer stand.
My card base is Shaded Spruce and the mats are Soft Suede.
I began by using the Woodland TIEF on a panel of Festive Farmhouse DSP for the basis of the front. To follow the Freshly Made Sketches sketch, I colored three of the trees with my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker. This was adhered to the mat with Liquid Glue. A length of Linen Thread was wrapped around the left side and tied in a small bow.
The sentiment is from Banners for You, stamped in Shaded Spruce on a scrap of the Festive Farmhouse DSP. I stamped the frame of Anniversary in Soft Suede and used the coordinating Bunch of Banners framelit to cut it out. The Happy was stamped in Shaded Spruce also and cut with my Stampin Trimmer. Oh, yes, I stamped the sentiments off once before stamping on my DSP. I ran my Soft Suede Stampin’ Write Marker around the edge of the Happy piece to help it stand out from the background. Both sentiments were attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
For the inside, the small deer from Dashing Deer was stamped in Soft Suede. The sentiment is from Better Together and is stamped off once Shaded Spruce. The leaves in the corner are also stamped off once and are in the Rooted in Nature stamp set.
The sentiment panel was then adhered to a Soft Suede mat with Liquid Glue and into the card base, also with Liquid Glue.
The envelope flap has more of the Festive Farmhouse DSP and the little deer shows up again on the front of the envelope.
I hope you enjoyed today’s card. I welcome your comments.
