Welcome to another Gina K. Design Team blog hop. Today we're featuring cards with a Gratitude theme to them. If you came from Cat’s blog Cat’s Creations, you're at the right place. If not, make sure to head over to StampTV where you will find a list of all those participating in today's hop.
This time of year especially, we may need more Thank You cards than usual with dinner parties, gifts and other acts of hospitality that may be extended to you or your family so we can show some gratitude with a handmade card. So I made a set of Thank You cards to have on hand, actually I needed some to send out that are long overdue so this was the perfect theme for me this month! I used the new Nature’s Greeting stamp kit which I love (especially this whimsical bloom).
I thought it would be fun to make a set of cards using some Basic Grey Indie Bloom papers which I just got from the Gina K store! Believe it or not, these cards came together in about an hour because I kept them simple, using the same layout and putting them together mass production-style. Here is what I did: 1. picked out all my pure luxury cardstock colors (red hot, pumpkin spice, sweet corn and lovely lavender), cut them and scored them. 2. Picked out my matching ribbons, buttons and pattern papers. 3. Stamped all the flowers and greetings, colored them (prismacolor pencils blended with odorless mineral spirits) and cut them out. 4. Cut all the layers at one time. 5. Assemble all layers (focal image is popped up with foam tape) 6. Placed liquid pearls in the flower centers.
I just love the centers of the flowers!
I want to extend a special thank you to everyone hopping with us today and for those who stop by my blog…I appreciate you!! P.S. I apologize for the quality of my photos – I cannot find my camera so I had to use my phone.
