Hi there and welcome to the October Stampers Dozen Blog Hop! The temperatures are finally starting to feel like Fall here in Central Virginia and I am loving it! So this month's theme for the blog hop is perfect because we are creating projects featuring all things Fall. I decided to use the Wishing You Well and Buffalo Check stamp sets from the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalog. These both really lend themselves to a fall-themed card, especially when paired with a color combination that includes cherry cobbler, crushed curry, crumb cake, soft suede and cajun craze.
This is a clean and simple layout and I decided to stamp the image using crumb cake ink. Before I stamped it on the whisper white card stock panel I colored parts of the image with crushed curry and cajun craze stampin' write markers. I huffed on the stamp to re-moisten it then stamped. The beautiful bow was stamped on a scrap of whisper white card stock with cherry cobbler ink and hand-cut it so it could be popped up. I also used the new braided linen thread - isn't it great? And check out the corrugated texture on the soft suede card stock.
And for the inside of the card I kept it super simple, adding a touch of color with a thin strip of crushed curry card stock leaving plenty of room to write to the recipient.
Thanks for visiting and have a great week!!
