‘Tis the Season to be Grateful

Welcome to my blog for one more October post! Today I have created an autumn colored card and I am going to say it’s a CAS style. This is a new color combo for me, and I love it.

My project is definitely on the heavy side of die cutting, but it does make a pretty card. The “grateful” die sentiment, from Simon Says Stamp, was cut three times and glued together to make one sentiment. While that was drying, I formed my card base with patterned paper and cardstock from Simon Says Stamp November Monthly Kit. This one kit is sold out. You will see in the supply list below I linked the kit’s merchandise I used. You can purchase the supplies separately or subscribe to the monthly kit.

Next step was cutting Spellbinder’s Twisted Palm die twice, and adhere both to the top and bottom of my card front. You will see that I added strips of the red cardstock to add more dimension to my final card.

With my sentiment dry, I added three layers of embossing ink plus the gold embossing powder between each layer of ink. Each layer was first melted before adding the next layer. I popped up the sentiment with foam tape, placed in the center. The final touch for the card front was the gold sequins and Tidings Stickles.

For the inside of the card I added more strips of the red cardstock. The sentiment, Simon Says Stamp’s Thankful Heart clear set, was stamped with Delicata Golden Glitz pigment ink.
