Wildly Grateful

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is a beautiful “thank you” card that is not only easy to make, but will get you into a “fall themed” state of mind! I just love the Flowers for Every Season 6” x 6” DSP, the designs are stunning and they feature the 2020-2022 In Colors, which is a great way to either use just these colors or experiment with other color combinations to appreciate these beautiful new colors! I used the Lovely You Bundle for the sentiments and the Sunflowers Dies for simple accent pieces, these all tied in together for this easy card to make multiples of.

The base layer is this design from the Flowers for Every Season 6” x 6” DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the card front, you will need:

1. Stamp the sentiment from Lovely You in Terracotta Tile ink on Whisper White cardstock, cut at ¾” x 2 ¾”, and use the squared side punch from the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch on each end.

2. Cut a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock at 1” x 3 ½”and use the rounded side of the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch on each end. This will be layered under the sentiment.

3. Cut a 4” piece of the Terracotta Tile Scalloped Linen Ribbon as shown.

4. Use the detailed leaf die from Sunflowers Dies to cut out of Old Olive cardstock. I placed a piece of Adhesive Sheet on the back before cutting for easy adhering.

5. Using both of the tall leaf dies to cut out one each from the Gold Foil Sheet. I placed a piece of Adhesive Sheet on the back before cutting for easy adhering.

6. You will need two of the 5mm Gilded Gems, not shown.

I first adhered the ribbon onto the DSP base layer and then used dimensionals to adhere the layered sentiment piece on top. *place the two 5mm Gilded Gems as shown:

I first adhered the two Old Olive detailed leaf die cuts as shown and then adhered the Gold Foil tall leaf die cuts as shown:

This completed piece is adhered to a Crumb Cake cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment from Lovely You in Terracotta Tile ink, and adhere the ¾” x 6” strip of DSP along the bottom, trimming off the excess:

Wasn’t this so easy to make? I found it easy for me to first adhere the ribbon and sentiment piece and then adhere the die cuts behind them, using adhesive sheets makes this easy! I used the four sheets of this design to make four of these cards, this way I have “thank you” cards on hand and I’m using up this beautiful DSP. Since there will be four of the  2” x 5 ¼” pieces of the DSP leftover, you can create four more of these cards (cut a piece of cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, emboss with your favorite folder, and then have this as an “accent” strip) or you can use this for the envelope flap!

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
