TRULY Grateful

Hi everyone! A very happy Monday to you! I’ve popped in this morning to share my first project as a card team member for Stick It Down! I’m absolutely thrilled! Cheeky Studio is our sponsor this month so come on over and play for the chance to win a prize! The card team is showcasing projects today on the blog and this is our super awesome card sketch this month:

Jan 2019 card

I created a pretty thank you card – I don’t ever seem to have enough of those in my stash. This is a simple design that could be easily be reproduced to create a set to give as a gift. Mandi did a great job designing this sketch!


I created a top fold card base using my curved matting basics die set. I stamped the woodgrain background and added randomly-placed wood planks and acorns for a little interest. I cut the dark layering panel and the background panel with graduating sizes of dies from the set, then stamped the wheat and cut it with a smaller die, and adhered it to the front. I stamped the sentiment on dark cardstock, heat embossed it and trimmed it down. I cut a slightly wider strip which I layered underneath and adhered them across the center of the card front. To finish the design, I added three metal studs on the bottom right.


I cut panels for the inside using the same curved matting basics die set. I stamped the woodgrain, acorns and wood planks randomly down the left side of the panel and then stamped the sentiment.


And here’s one more look… really loving how this turned out!

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
