Painted Harvest

Love how quick a card can come together using the new Holiday stamp set, Painted Harvest.  Unfortunately, my husband has a work friend that isn’t doing well.  Cancer sucks!  We sent her this card today to bring a little cheer during this difficult time.


Here are the details:

  • The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Lemon Lime Twist, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
  • On the 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Whisper White, a 1 x 4 strip of Painted Autumn Designer Paper was added.
  • A length of 1/8″ Copper Trim was added to hide the seam.
  • The sunflower from Painted Harvest stamp set was stamped with Crushed Curry…stamped off the the solid image and full strength for the top image.  The center was stamped with Chocolate Chip and the dots in the center with Chocolate Chip Ink, too.  It was hand cut and added to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The leaves were stamped with Lemon Lime Twist on the solid and Garden Green for the veins, then used the Leaf Punch.  They were adhered under the sunflower.
  • A few extra dot images were stamped with Lemon Lime Twist around the flower.
  • The Thinking of You greeting from Thoughts & Prayers stamp set was stamped with Chocolate Chip Ink.


Love the clean lines of this card!
