It’s that time of year. Summer is on the way out and Fall is rapidly approaching. The days are still nice and fairly warm but the evenings feel like Autumn with the crisp, cool air.
And this stamp set, Day of Gratitude, is a great way to express the change of seasons. I am really enjoying creating with this stamp set and the coordinating paper, Autumn Spice. Don’t buy one without the other. They match so well!
To make this card, I stamped the branch image and "thank you" greeting onto a 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" piece of Very Vanilla cardstock with Cajun Craze ink. I layered this piece onto a piece of 2-3/4" x 2-3/4" piece of Cajun Craze cardstock and then onto a 3" x 3" piece of Autumn Spice specialty designer series paper that features More Mustard. This paper is a specialty paper because the sheets are a heavyweight cardstock. Very nice!
I added a 1" wide strip of the Autumn Spice paper that matches the stamped image to the front of the Cajun Craze card after rounding the corners with my punch.
The Cajun Craze button with a linen thread bow was attached with a mini glue dot and the stamped image was attached with dimensionals.
A clean and simple card that is perfect for this time of year.
