Hello and welcome to today’s cards, which are part two of my three-part Thanksgiving cards made with the Country Lane Suite! With Thanksgiving right around the corner and a hectic upcoming schedule, I’m sharing two more cards that I made from one sheet of Country Lane Designer Series Paper! Having a simple template to cut your DSP to makes it so much easier to get creative and make cards for any occasion! If you missed it, my previous blog post gives you the template for cutting this one sheet to create eight cards.
Both of these cards are made with the card base of Thick Whisper White cardstock, one sheet cut at 5 ½” for the measurement of 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”.
For the card on the right, I used one piece of DSP cut at 3” x 4” and one piece cut at 4” x 4”, layering them and then adhering to the card base:
For the sentiment from the Country Home stamp set, I stamped it in Mint Macaron ink on a ½” piece of Whisper White cardstock, and flagged the ends with the Banner Triple Punch. I adhered some Gold Metallic Thread to the back and then adhered this to a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock cut out with the second largest Stitched Shapes oval. This is then adhered to the front with dimensionals and I added some Gold Metallic Pearls:
The inside is stamped in Mint Macaron ink from the Country Home stamp set:
For the card on the right, I adhered the 4” x 5 ¼” piece of DSP to the card base:
Additional elements for the front are a piece of Cajun Craze cardstock cut out with the second largest Stitched Shapes oval, a piece of Chicken Wire Element that I cut to 1 ½” (a whole piece measures 4” x 5 ½”), and I stamped the can with the flowers and sentiment on a piece of Whisper White cardstock in Memento ink, colored in with Light and Dark Mint Macaron, Light and Dark Blackberry Bliss, Light and Dark Old Olive, Light Mango Melody, and Dark Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blends Markers, adding Wink of Stella to the cotton blooms, and then cutting out:
I used a small amount of Snail on the left side to help adhere the Chicken Wire Element, adhered the flower pot to the Cajun Craze oval, and then adhered this to the card front with dimensionals (this covers the snail):
The inside sentiment from the Country Home stamp set is stamped in Mint Macaron ink:
Wasn’t that quick and easy?? Now I have five cards made from one piece of DSP that I really would not have used and these cards turned out awesome! Stay tuned for my next blog post that will show you the final two cards!
