Thankful for You

Over at Heart 2 Heart Challenges, they have a new challenge! (go figure, right?) If you didn’t already know, they have a new challenge each week, on Mondays! Today’s challenge is Inspired by Nature. So, since I don’t have my cricut handy (whaaaat??) . . . I decided to go with stamp sets! I went with My Type of Note. I know, you are thinking what the heck is she thinking?? Right? Well, if you haven’t already noticed, not only is there a typewriter in that set, but also a fun little floral cluster!

So, instead of going to our fantastic Make it from your Heart books, I went to pinterest, and found this fun card. I really liked the circles with the leaves and such poking through.

I used both the basic circle thin cuts and the stitched circle thin cuts to get my circles cut out of the front of the B&T. The original card had some white netting, which I don’t have, so I went with some vellum. I stamped the image in Espresso ink on the kraft cardstock. I glued the vellum do the back side of the striped paper, and then used thin foam 3-D tape to pop those layers up above the kraft (which was glued directly to the card base).

I realized after I popped up the panels, that I had forgotten the sentiment! No worries, there are no mistakes in crafting, am I right? So, I grabbed a scrap of white daisy and used both the Living My Best Life and Simply Said stamp sets to create this fun sentiment.

I added a bit of the white burlap ribbon and gold glitter gems, and my card is done! It took more time to figure out which circles to use than it did to create the rest of the card!

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you will come and play along with the Heart 2 Heart challenges!!
