For the card today, I'm combining a few fun products from the Annual Stampin' Up! catalog. The card video I made showing how I put the card together is HERE.
I started with a base card in Basic White and then took a Basic White panel of cardstock and ran it through my Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine using the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder. This gives it a subtle texture of the shiplap and a farmhouse base to place the wreath element. I cut the wreath shape using the Wreath Builder Dies and a scrap of Granny Apple Green card stock. I used the Multipurpose glue to attach the embossed panel and the wreath to the base card and then moved on to the stamping and coloring...
I stamped the donkey image and the sentiment from the Darling Donkeys stamp set onto a stitched rectangle panel using Momento Black ink. This ink works great when you're planning to color with our Stampin' Blends markers. The marker colors I chose include Granny Apple Green combo, Crumb Cake combo, Light smokey slate and Light petal pink,
I offset the wreath a little to the left and the stitched rectangle colored panel a little to the right so that more of the wreath was showing on the card front. For the finishing touch, I added a linen tread bow with a mini glue dot.
I love how this card came out and can't wait to send it to a friend with a note inside. This period of pandemic isolation is hard on a lot of my friends, and I know happy mail is helping to lift their spirits, especially with the holidays over and winter settling in now. I encourage you to send your handmade cards and put a little sunshine in someone's mailbox!
Thanks so much for checking out my card for today!
