Bunches of Thanks

Happy New Year everyone!  We are sharing some projects from some of our favorite kits....new inspiration for those previous kits, and better yet, we are starting the New Year off with a bang....these stamp sets are on SALE in the store if you didn't get yours!  Many of our sets are up to 50% off.

I'm sharing a great everyday Thank You with you today created with the Laurels stamp set:



Base:  Kraft cardstock 5&1/2" by 4&1/4"

First Layer:  5&1/4" by 4" plaid (MME)

Large Panel:  stamp branches randomly on a 2&1/2" by 4&3/4" piece of white cardstock.  TIP:  I used Gathered Twigs distress ink and stamped off the first time to get a softer look. 

Next cut a 4&3/4" by 3/4" piece of kraft cardstock, glue to left side of stamped piece (about 1/4" from left edge).  Then wrap and tie a seam binding bow around this piece. Mat on a  2&3/4" by 5" piece of aqua pearl cardstock, then glue to the left side of the card.  Tie a piece of hemp fiber to bow. 

Stamp and fussy cut out 3 branches, color with markers, glue under bow.

For the sentiment panel, stamp sentiment on white cardstock, trim to 1" by 2".  Mat on 1&1/4" by 2" piece of kraft cardstock.  Add pink enamel dots.

Cut a 2&3/4" by 1&3/4" piece of plaid pattern paper, mat on a 3" by 2" piece of kraft cardstock.  Foam tape sentiment to this piece, add banners.

Love the soft colors with a touch of the Pantone colors of the year too.

Lovely card!
I really like the multiple layers. It gives dimension to the card but yet it's not too busy.
