TCM: Relax and Enjoy the Day

Thursday, September 12, 2013

Hey, y'all!  Just popping in to share a card I have up on The Craft's Meow's Store Blog today.  I knew I wanted to share something that exuded the warmth of fall, but I couldn't yet share what we have in store, for you all, for the September Release.  So, instead, I pulled in the colors of fall and came up with this.
I started this card by stamping a piece of ivory, text, patterned paper, in Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive inks, with the beautiful blooms and leaves; trimming it, across its bottom edge, with a strip of olive, penmanship, patterned paper; framing the two with Chocolate Chip cardstock; and machine stitching, with brown-threaded, straight stitches, around their combined edges.  I then wrapped a length of Cherry Cobbler, seam binding ribbon, between the patterned paper connection, around the prepped piece; tied it in a double bow; and embellished it with a hemp twine bow, as well as a green, felt bloom, before adhering the entire thing, with foam tape, to the Kraft, cardstock, card face.
A yellow, chevron envelope backs the stamped, in Jet Black ink, on vellum, jar, which was dressed up with a stamped, in Real Red and Chocolate Chip inks, on White cardstock, "RELAX AND ENJOY THE DAY", sentiment label, as well as stamped, in Real Red and Daffodil Delight inks, on White cardstock, and hand cut straw and lemon.
The latter received a kiss of glitter, and a wire bird trinket, anchored with Baker's Twine hand stitches, completes the look.
Oh!  And that little, chevron, envelope makes the perfect home for a gift card for the recipient, too.
Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a fabulous Friday, friends!
