Welcome to Create with Connie and Mary’s Creatively Simple Challenge! Each month Mary and I will pick a theme…this month it is “Thankful” and we each create a simple card every week using that theme! It’s SO appropriate for this time of year!
I can definitely say that I’ve gotten a LOT of use out of my Seasonal Swirls Dies. And, it wasn’t even a set that was first on my list to get! This card is SUPER simple and easy to assemble, but I love the clean simplicity of it! Just a couple passes thru the Cut & Emboss with the dies and you are done!
- The base is 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 Crumb Cake cardstock, scored at 4-1/4 and folded.
- A 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Cajun Craze cardstock was added on top.
- The 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 layer of Basic white was stamped with the greeting from Heartfelt Wishes in Early Espresso Ink towards the bototm.
- The Seasonal Swirls leaf wreath was partially cut from Crumb Cake cardstock. The leaves were cut from Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry and Cherry Cobbler cardstock, then added to the wreath.
- Two pumpkins were cut from Pumpkin Pie cardstock using the Die and added with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Some Simply Elegant Gold Trim was tied in a bow and added to the bottom of the wreath with a Mini Glue Dot.
- A trio of Genial Gems were added to the background.
I’m so excited with how this turned out!!! Make sure to check out what Mary did this week for her “Thankful” Creatively Simple card over on Create with Connie and Mary! Stay tune next week for another Creatively Simple card!
