And We Give Thanks

Happy Saturday everyone!  Don’t you just LOVE Saturdays?  I know I do because there is always such COOL inspiration from the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team Saturday Blog Hop.  This week we are giving thanks with words that have the word ‘thanks’ on it.

I’ve seen a number of cards (including one from our own very talented Connie) where the sunflower was done in blues instead of traditional yellows.  I thought they were just BEAUTIFUL so I thought for this card I would give thanks for the inspiration done by others!

Here’s the details…

  • Smoky Slate – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Vellum – 3 3/4 x 5, run through the Layer Leaves embossing folder and add to card front
  • Whisper White – layer largest stitched square and coordinating layering square to create frame; add to card front
  • Night of Navy – layer second largest stitched square and coordinating layering square to create frame; add to card front
  • Punch leaves from Night of Navy (1), Smoky Slate (1), Basic Grey (2)
  • Whisper White – stamp sunflower base in Soft Sky and top layer in Marina Mist, stamp center in Smoky Slate and dots in Basic Grey, cut out, add leaves behind the flower and add to card using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – 5/8 x 3, stamp greeting using Night of Navy, cut into banner on both ends and add using dimensionals
