So Very Grateful again

Not really sure if this actually came out like it was pictured in my head.  I actually wanted it to look like a framed picture on a wall.  What do you think?  Did I succeed?  lol!  Oh well, I like it anyway!  And I LOVE the Hardwood stamp!  I can’t believe I waited SO long to get it!  Thankfully it is in the new catalog, too!  WOOHOO!

I originally thought this might be one of the Mother’s Day cards that I need…I may end up switching out the greeting.  But for now, it is what it is!  Here are the details:

  1. The base is 4 1/4 x 11 Blushing Bride (I haven’t used that in AGES!), folded in half.
  2. I stamped the Hardwood stamp with Crumb Cake ink on Crumb Cake cardstock.
  3. Before I placed the Hardwood layer, I pierced the hole for the Vintage Brad and wrapped the White Bakers Twine around it.
  4. I stamped the So Very Grateful image with Black Stazon on Whisper White and cut it with the Oval Framelits.
  5. Then I cut the next larger oval from Pistachio Pudding and used the Piercing Tool around the edge.  I placed both on the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. I stamped Thank You with Black Stazon on Blushing Bride and punched with the Large Oval Punch.
  7. Finally, I added Pearls in the center of the flowers.


Hope you like it!

I love this card Connie. And yes, it does look like a picture on the wall! Think I might have to get that stamp myself.

I too am excited to have this Hardwood stamp stay over for the new catalog…it is fabulous! Love your card…maybe a bit wider ‘frame’ would make it look a bit more like it is framed….but it is beautiful!
