The kits are in the mail and now I can share with you the BONUS card for my August Stamp Set of the Month, Thankful Friends.
I love how this stamp set can go from cutesy to woodland.
For this card I went all out, I wanted those who got this card kit in the mail from me to have a WOW card for their first card with their new stamp set.
The background is stamped with the Pine Background stamp. Isn't it gorgeous with Cool Pool Silk splattered on it.
The circle that the squirrel is special paper, it is from a print I made on my Gel Press. After cutting out a circle from this print I embossed the circle with my Barn Wall embossing folder. BUT here is the magical part, take a piece of fine grit sanding paper and sand off some paint from the raised areas of the embossed lines. These are the things that make my giddy!
Do you LOVE the pinecones??? I adore pinecones to stamp, die cut, collect, decorate with! I have several pinecone ornaments fo my Christmas Tree. So I have been making different variations of pinecones with this new die set and have lots of fun!
So other extra special touches I added to this card are a strip fo corrugated stock, I love how just a little strip of this specialty paper elevates my projects. And a few rainbow drops added an extra bit of shine that this card needed.
I am excited for my customers to get these card kits and make this beautiful card, if I don't say so myself. As you can see making cute things with paper is my jam, it brings me joy and fills my cup! I hope that my creations inspire you to create and fill your cup as well.
If you're curious about all the cool things I used to make this card I am listing them below for you.
