Truly Grateful Note Card

Hello, my crafty friends! Well, aren’t we just rockin’ right on into the second half of the year! Hard to believe it’s already July 1st. Hope you’re working on your Christmas cards because the holidays will be here in the blink of an eye! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #12 – July Anything Goes! Come on over and play with us!

I used the absolutely gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Truly Grateful stamp set to create this thank you note card done in neutrals with a little yellow and a pop of orange. All the panels and flags are layered on brown cardstock.


I created the background by stamping the woodgrain image, then random tree trunks and acorns from the same stamp set. I punched some flags that I arranged under the focal image. I added brown twine for a little texture. The only other embellishment used were brown flat-back pearls. I left the inside blank as this is a note card.

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
