Hello friends, Leanne here! November is a beautiful time for counting the blessings we have and appreciating the people around us. Today I want to share a set of three cards, expressing my thanks to those whom I love and adore! These trio of cards will no doubt bring a smile to the recipients face and they are all very simple to recreate!
To start, gather your supplies. I have delved into the new Warm & Cozy collection. You will need white cardstock, up to five choices of patterned paper (including cozy sentiments and the rose gold foil patterned paper) , ephemera die cuts, stickers and printed chipboard. Each card is sized at 4″x6″.
Card 1 | Thank You
Step 1. This first card is quite clean and simple. Trim your cardstock base to 8″x6 and fold in half at the 4″ mark. Trim a second piece of white cardstock to 3.75″x5.75″ creating a separate piece slightly smaller than the folded card.
Step 2. Trim the Warm & Cozy Rose Gold foil patterned paper to the same size as the 3.75″x5.75″ cardstock.
Step 3. Trim a square from each of the 3.75″x5.73″ pieces to create a window. To layer effectively, ensure the square removed from the patterned paper is slightly smaller than the one removed from the cardstock. Add each layer evenly to the base card.
Step 4. Trim a sentiment from the Warm & Cozy Cozy Sentiments patterned paper and align in the middle of the newly create window.
Step 5. Overlap a printed cardstock leaf with a gold foil ephemera leaf to add as an embellishment to your card. As an optional extra, include a piece of gold thread around the stem of the printed cardstock leaf before adding it to the card.
This “Thank You” card is simple but effective!
Card 2 | Thankful
Step 1. Trim your cardstock to create your card base – 8″x6″. Fold and score in half at the 4″ mark. Trim two pieces of patterned paper to size, one slightly larger than the other – 3.75″x5.75″ and 3.5″x5.5″.
Step 2. Layer and machine stitch the two pieces of patterned paper together before adhering to the base.
Step 3. Trim the Thankful sentiment from the Warm & Cozy ephemera pack and add foam tape to the reverse side. Also add foam tape to the smaller of the floral die cuts. Adhere to the card, leaving the larger floral die cut without foam tape.
Step 4. Complete the card as shown in the photo below.
This “Thankful” card with the woodgrain patterned paper pops with its darker colours against the stark contrast of the white cardstock base!
Card 3 | Thanks
Step 1. This little card is a bit more fun loving! quick tip: You will need to create a tartan bow from the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board. Trim card base to the same size as the previous two cards. Include a 3.5″x5.5″ white cardstock layer and a 3.75″x5.75″ piece of patterned paper.
Step 2. Trim the fox image away from the Warm & Cozy sticker sheet and a “Thanks” sentiment from the Cozy Sentiments paper. Working with the fox, use a sharp blade to carefully trim around the nose. By cutting a slit into the sticker, we can add the sentiment as though the fox is peeking over it! Slip the sentiment under the nose and adhere to the front of the fox. Remove the back of the sticker and add foam tape. Add the fox to the white cardstock.
Step 3. Layer the cardstock onto the tartan patterned paper, add the bow below the sentiment and adhere to the front of the card base.
To complete this card, add a splash of gold mist.
Thanks for joining me here today as we celebrate the people we are always thankful for! Happy crafting..x
