Hi Everyone! Today’s card was created for our neighbor who so generously gave us unused mulch… of course, I had to cart it uphill to our yard, but hey, it was free…  useful… and needed. So there you have it.😉 We have great neighbors! And I totally cased this card from Amy Koenders!

Here’s the card…

Ornate Thanks stamp set
Ornate Layers Dies
#1

And here’s a list of supplies…

  • Ornate Thanks stamp set
  • Ornate Layers Dies
  • Stitched Rectangles Dies
  • Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In Color ribbon
  • In Good Taste DSP
  • Neutral 6×6 DSP – Night of Navy
  • Night of Navy ink & cs
  • Whisper White cs
  • Smokey Slate cs
  • Versamark
  • White embossing powder

And here’s how I did it…

I started by die cutting the two rectangles for the front using the Stitched Rectangles Dies. I adhered these two together with the new Stampin Seal (it works great… has an end cap so it doesn’t stick to anything else when you put it away. I’m happy with it.) I then adhered them to the card front (Smokey Slate) with the same Stampin Seal. With Night of Navy cs I stamped the card front sentiment with Versamark ink using the Ornate Thanks stamp set, sprinkled it with White Embossing powder and heat set it. TIP… this needs to cool a bit before handling as it’s kinda sticky while still warm. I then die cut it using the Ornate Layers Dies. This was put on dimensionals and set aside. I cut a length of ribbon from the Misty Moonlight 2020-2022 In Color spool and adhered it with the Stampin Seal. The sentiment on dimesnionals was placed over the top and centered on the card.

For the inside…

#2

With a panel of Whisper White cs, I stamped the sentiment from Ornate Thanks stamp set in Night of Navy. I adhered a strip of the Neutral 6×6 DSP in Night of Navy 1/4″ from the bottom and added another strip of the In Good Taste DSP over the top. This was adhered to the Smokey Slate card base and the card was complete!

The envelope…

Ornate Thanks stamp set #3

Stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy from the Ornate Thanks stamp set. Adhere the Neutrals 6×6 Night of Navy to the envelope flap and the envelope is complete. Wheee. Easy peasy and so perfect for our neighbors.
