Apple Harvest Thank You Card by Secrets To Stamping

Hi, Stampers!

I am so happy to be back on the Happy Little Stampers Die Challenge Design Team! Firstly, thanks to the rest of the team for being so patient with me while I was doing my crazy move to Chicago, and, rest assured, I don’t plan on doing that again for a LOOOOOONG time! Now, onto my project – my card for you all today started with me trying to use the Texture Chic Memories & More Cards & Envelopes, which just so happens to be on sale starting today (see the Weekly Deals below)! Although I do love the card front on these cards, I like layering my cards more! So, I pulled out my new Apple Harvest bundle to use with them and came up with a plan that uses two of the card bases. If you want to hear how I made it, just keep reading!

Once you finish here, I hope you visit our Happy Little Stampers Die Challenge Design Team gallery for some great inspiration and play along!

My secrets to making this Quiet Meadow project

  • Firstly, for the card base, all I did was fold the card so that the patterned side of the card would be on the inside. Easy!
  • After that, I took the second card base and trimmed the front down so that the patterned side of the card measured 5-7/8″ x 4″ and adhered to the card front.

Now, the FUN Part!

  • After the card base was done, I stamped and colored the pretty image from the Apple Harvest stamp set.
  • Then, I cut and colored the flowers and leaves with parts of the remaining card pieces, and layered them together.
  • More scraps were used to make the panel behind the focal image, cutting it with the Deckled Rectangle die. Then, I layered it onto Petal Pink cardstock. Before popping the focal image on top, I stamped the fun criss cross image around the corners of the panel.
  • After that, I stamped the sentiment to the card front.
  • Finally, I added the flowers to the card front and added the Classic Matte Dots to the flowers and around the focal point.
  • INSIDE: I cut a large panel from the Deckled Rectangle die and stamped the flowers along the bottom before adhering it to the inside of the card.
