Today’s card is a Thankful card that you could send out at any time of the year, but I really like the the stamped sentiment out of our Holiday catalog and wanted to feature it today to share with you! 🙂
Here’s the Debbie Details:
As you can see this a very “mossy meadow” card, (Mossy Meadow is one of our very lovely green 2014-2016 IN COLORS). I will be using it for the upcoming Christmas holidays as it is a very nice green color, not too too bright and not too too “dull.” Just right! Bright and right!
The dsp is from the beautiful English Garden package featured in our Annual catalog and ALL the papers are so pretty and with the watercolored look on all the pretty patterns. As you can see I layered and layered. Since I have become quite attached to this pretty Mossy Meadow green color lately, I wanted to let this beautiful watercolored paper be my focal point.
The sentiment is from the Thankful Forest Friends stamp set in the Holiday catty! While you could use your SU markers to color the the leaves and acorn in “fall colors” I wanted to just focus on this Mossy Meadow. I think it looks nice and a feel for warmth even though the background is white. You could “mask” off the fall leaves and acorn at the top of it and use it year round, not just for the Fall holidays! I know, wouldn’t that be great??!!
I punched out the darling ACORN from the Acorny Thank you stamp set also in the Holiday catty, BUT wanted to add a little “sparkle” so I punched the top of it in Dazzling Diamonds glimmer paper. That Dazzling paper is simply “dazzling” isn’t it darling? Dazzle schmazzle! I popped the acorn cutie up on my trusty ol’ dimensionals to give it a little “see me” kinda thing!
Tiny leaves – aren’t they nice and “petite?” Why yes they are. They obliged me in the form of the Square Pillow Box Thinlits die! Yes, that’s right. I don’t think they get as much attention as they should, so I wanted to let them be noticed on my sweet little acorn! I cropped them out in Mossy Meadow, by now you’ve probably figured that out. You are on it! 🙂
I just can’t resist using my envelope liner to cut out a short piece of matching dsp to line the envelope. I really, really, really wanted to let this dsp in the Mossy Meadow green and the beautiful sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink shine in all their green glory! Watch out Always Artichoke and Old Olive, Mossy Meadow is here and I hope it gets to stay!!
I did use the square Collection framelits to Big Shot out the top layer squares, the sentiment and the back card stock of it. I used the Woodgrain embossing folder to give that “woodsy” look to my adorable little acorn bottom part.
