Happy Harvest Blessings; A Quick and Simple Card to Create


When I think of Thanksgiving colors, yellow, red, and orange come to mind.  Take a look at the Country Lane Designer Series paper.  Mint Macaron, Blackberry Bliss, and Crushed Curry.  Three of my favorite Stampin' Up! colors but not your typical Thanksgiving / Fall Harvest colors.
The card I created for you is pretty simple.  Just a few layers, embossing, and coloring.  The cardbase is cut 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored t 4 1/4.  I added a layer of Black Berry Bliss cardstock 4 x 5 1/4 that was embossed using the Tin Tile Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  What's great about this embossing folder is that both sides of the paper works once you have it embossed.  In my video below, I'll show you the differences.


Once I adhered the cardstock, I then layered a panel of Mint Macaron cut 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 to the Country Lane Designer Series paper that is cut 3 x 4.  Using this dimension, you can make 9 cards out of one sheet of paper.

The strip of Whisper White is cut approximately 5/8" x 3".  I stamped the image from Country Home stamp set using Blackberry Bliss ink.  Adhere the sentiment to the panel.  Add some dimensionals to the backside and adhere to the card front using 1/2" border.  Use the Nature's Twine in Blackberry Bliss to create a bow and add with a glue dot.


For the inside panel, I used a sentiment from Country Home.  This is stamped using Blackberry Bliss ink.  The flower image is from Many Blessings stamp set.  I stamped the flower image using Memento Black.  I colored the image using Stampin Write markers:  Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry, and Mint Macaron.  Add a little sparkle with Wink of Stella.


I also like to combine my card theme with my envelope so I stamped the flowers again and colored in the same manner as the inside panel.
Here is my step-by-step video to help you make this card.
