Thoughtful Thanks

Hello Stampers ~ We all need thank you cards so I have a thoughtful thanks for you today!

Well I was cranking out the cards yesterday.  I just had my list and kept working my way through the list.  I think I have 4 left for this month then I need to work on a few for next month to get me through my trips.

One of the challenges at A Card a Day challenge is a color challenge.  Here is our color challenge for this week.

Color Challenge:


I thought the colors today would make a great Fall card.  I began with a card base of Whisper White.  I took a piece of  Tangerine Tango card stock that measured 4” x 5 ¼” and using the Woodgrain embossing folder I ran it through my Big Shot to emboss it.  I used some Gold Thread to wrap around the top and tie into a bow. I attached the panel to my card base using Tear-n-Tape.  Then using the Thoughtful Branches stamp set and matching framelits I used So Saffron, Tangerine Tango, and Peekaboo Peach to sponge color onto the treetop stamp.  After I stamped it I used the matching framelit to cut it out.  I then used the tree framelit to cut out the tree shape from Delightful Dijon.  I mounted the tree onto the card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I attached the treetop to the tree using Tombow Multipurpose Liquid glue.  My sentiment from the same set is stamped in Tangerine Tango onto a 1 “ strip of Whisper White.  I flagged the end using the Banner Triple punch.  I attached this with Stampin’ dimensionals also.  These colors made a colorful Fall card.  Here is my completed creation.

Thanks for visiting me today.  The kids will be gone almost all day so I will be doing some video recording while they are away.  Then I will go back to making cards.  Have a Sensational Sunday and wouldn't you love to send a Thoughtful Thanks card to someone special?
