I’ll be posting cards from my craft weekend for the next few posts – here’s a Thanksgiving card I created. I wanted to try out my new Heartfelt Creations stamps and Copic markers. I’m working on new ways to photograph the cards, too.
Note: finished card size is 8 1/2” x 5 1/2”
Pumpkin Pie (SU!): 8 1/2” x 11, score @ 5 1/2”; Crushed Curry (SU!): 5 1/4” x 5 1/4”; Always Artichoke (SU!): 5 1/8” x 5 1/8”; Stamper’s Select White Cardstock (Paper Trey): 5” x 5”
Rich Cocoa (Memento); Soft Suede (SU!)
Rustic Autumn Wheel (Heartfelt Creations); Sentiment from Bold Falling Leaves (Heartfelt Creations)
COPIC Markers: Y17, Y38, YR15, YR07, YG93, E11, E18, E31, E33, E37, C5, C7; Sponge; Ribbon (Hobby Lobby); Acrylic Block; Stamp-A-Ma-Jig; SU! Marker: Soft Suede; Post-It Note; Sticky Tape (PK Glitz); Scor-Pal; Fiskars trimmer with deckle blade; Scissors; Baby wipes
This is an EASY card – the only cutting to do is to cut the squares of yellow, green, and white using the deckle blade. The edges are distressed with the suede ink and a sponge.
I stamped the image using the cocoa ink on the white square, and colored it with COPIC markers:
- Pumpkins: Y17, YR15, YR07, E11, E18
- Grass: Y38, YG93
- Fence: E31, E33, E37
- Wheel: C5, C7
The sentiment is stamped on the base card using the suede ink, and the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig for positioning. The trick here is that the stamp is one line, and I wanted it on 2 lines. To split the image:
Mount the green square on the left of the card, and add the yellow on the green. Tie the ribbon around the card BEFORE mounting the image panel. I used the sticky tape to hold the ribbon in place.
Mount the image on the yellow square over the ribbon.
I’d love to get your feedback as I work on improving my blog – leave a comment and let me know what you think.
