It’s hard to believe Thanksgiving is just 5 weeks away. This year has just flown by! This time of year always reminds me of the many blessings in my life. So I made a few of these pretty sunflower cards to let some special people know how grateful I am that they are in my life.
Painted Harvest Thankful for You Card Supply List
In addition to the above supplies, you will need ink pads in Early Espresso, Crumb Cake, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Old Olive, and Pear Pizzazz. You will also need cardstock in Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, and Crumb Cake.
Painted Harvest Thankful for You Card Instructions
Cut the paper:
- Cut a piece of Early Espresso cardstock to 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″. Place the long edge at the top of a scoring board and score at 4-1/4″. Fold in half to form your card base.
- Cut 2 pieces of Very Vanilla cardstock that are 5-1/4″ x 4″.
- Cut a strip of Crumb Cake cardstock that is 5″ x 1″. Use the Banner Triple Punch to fishtail the ends.
- Cut a piece of Early Espresso cardstock that is 4″ x 3″.
- Cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock that is 3-3/4″ x 2-3/4″.
Use the Basket Weave Embossing Folder to emboss one of the 5-1/4″ x 4″ Very Vanilla layers.
All stamps are from the Painted Harvest stamp set.
- Using Early Espresso ink, stamp the “I am thankful for you” sentiment in the bottom right corner of the smaller Very Vanilla piece.
- Using Crumb Cake ink, stamp the dots image randomly all over the same Very Vanilla piece.
- Using Old Olive ink, stamp the less detailed leaf image twice on a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock.
- Using Pear Pizzazz ink, stamp the more detailed leaf image over the top of the leaf bases.
- Using Early Espresso ink, stamp the sunflower center on to a scrap of Very Vanilla cardstock.
- Using Daffodil Delight ink, stamp the less detailed sunflower stamp, lining up with the sunflower center. Re-ink the stamp and rotate it slightly before stamping again. This will give you a fuller flower.
- Using Crushed Curry ink, stamp the more detailed sunflower stamp, lining up with the sunflower center.
You may find it helpful to use the Stamparatus to line up your images for the leaves and the sunflowers.
Cut out the images:
- Use the Leaf Punch to cut out the stamped leaf images.
- Use scissors to fussy cut out the sunflower stamped image. (If you don’t want to cut it out by hand, you could use a circle punch or the layering circles die set to cut out the image.)
- Adhere the un-embossed 5-1/4″ x 4″ Very Vanilla layer to the inside of the card.
- Adhere the embossed layer to the card base, making sure you have an even border on all sides.
- Adhere the stamped Very Vanilla piece to the smaller Early Espresso piece. Then adhere this to the center of your card.
- Adhere the Crumb Cake banner about 1″ down from the top of the smallest Very Vanilla layer, making sure that it is centered on your card left to right.
- Referring to the above image for placement, adhere the leaves to the card.
- Use Stampin Dimensionals to adhere the stamped sunflower image to the center of the banner.
