Stampin' Up! Sweets & Treats Thankful Card

Hey stampers!  Today's card might should have been posted last Thursday instead of today, since it was Thanksgiving!  I just realized how perfect that would have been as I was editing the pictures today.  Oh well.  We should be thankful all the time, not just at Thanksgiving.

For some reason, I tend to grab pretty much the same colors when I used this set.  I wonder if there's going to be a different set I use these colors with, since this Sweets & Treats stamp set will be retiring at the end of the month.  If it is one you have had your eye on, don't miss your chance to purchase it.  I have sure been enjoying it the last few months!  

Card Base ~ Fresh Freesia Cardstock ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
Layer 1 ~ Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper ~ 4" x 5-1/4"
Layer 2 ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 3" x 3"
Scraps of Basic White Cardstock
Small Scrap of Fresh Freesia Cardstock 

Inside Layer ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 5-1/4" x 4"

  • Use the Dark Fresh Freesia Stampin' Blend to color a 5-3/4" piece of White Glittered Organdy Ribbon, set aside.
  • Stamp the pie and cake stand with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on scraps of Basic White Cardstock.
  • Use Stampin' Blends to color the stamped images.  Then fussy cut around them with Paper Snips.
  • Stamp the sentiment at the top of Layer 3 with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
  • On the scrap of Fresh Freesia CS, use Versamark to stamp 'thankful'.  Heat Emboss 'thankful' with White Embossing Powder.  Then, cut around the 'thankful' and glue it over the same word in the stamped sentiment on Layer 2. 
  • Place the ribbon over Layer 1, securing each end behind the DSP with a Glue Dot. 
  • Adhere Layer 1 to the Card Base.
  • Use Stampin' Dimensionals to attach Layer 2 to Layer, as shown. 
  • Glue the cake stand to Layer 2.  Place the pie on the cake stand with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

For the inside layer I just stamped a heart in the upper right corner with Fresh Freesia ink.  Is there a sentiment you would like to add to the inside? 
Adhere the inside layer to the inside of your card. 

I hope this card inspires you to create something today! 
Happy Stamping!
