Hello! Today I’m participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights. Readers get to vote on their top five favorites in the gallery and the top 10 winners will get to participate in an International Blog Hop later this month. The thank you theme is a way for us to show our appreciation to someone that has inspired, helped or supported us in some way. Today’s card features Forever Fern, one of my favorite stamp sets from the annual catalog.
I was asked by a women’s organization I belong to, to make cards to go into 110 goodie bags that were hand-delivered to our members two weeks ago. Normally we have an annual membership dinner at a restaurant, however, due to Covid, we were unable to meet in person. We hosted a Zoom event and everyone opened up their bags at the same time. While we couldn’t be together in person, this was the next best option and it was a fun evening! Since I had to do so many cards I stuck to stamps, ink, paper and threw in a punch. Highland Heather and Pacific Point matched our logo perfectly and I added in Granny Apple Green.
Here is how I made the card.
- Card base – cut Highland Heather cardstock at 4 1/4″ x 11″, score at 5 1/2″ and crease with a bone folder.
- Cut piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp the floral images from the Forever Fern stamp set with Highland Heather, Pacific Point and Granny Apple Green ink. Since I had to make multiple cards, I used the Stamparatus, which was a great time saver! Stamp the splatter image around the leaves with Pacific Point ink, stamping off once before stamping onto the cardstock.
- On a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the thank you greeting from the Borders Abound stamp set. Punch out with the Tailored Tag punch. Overstamp the small leaf image twice with Highland Heather ink, first stamping off each time. I added a small pearl at the bottom of the tag.
- Adhere the stamped floral piece to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then adhere the tag to the center of the floral spray with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
We wanted to put a special message into the card so I ended up creating the inside of the card by using my computer printer. I selected a font that came close to matching the font on the tag and then used the RGB numbers for Pacific Point to print the messages, which I did four to a page and then cut apart with the Stampin’ Trimmer.
I’d be so appreciative if you would vote for my card by clicking on the vote image below. To give a vote, once you are in the gallery, click on the heart at the top right hand side of the picture as the hearts appear.
Thanks for stopping by today!
