It’s time for the Festive Friday Challenge, where every challenge is a party! For FF0020, we are celebrating Thanksgiving (Nov. 22) with a thank you card twist. I opted to create a “thinking of you-thank you card” in Fresh Fig and Blushing Bride. We can’t wait to see what you create!
Colors of the Day
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips
After playing with fall and holiday colors, I was looking for a change of palette. Using a subdued Fresh Fig/Blackberry Bliss pattern from the Country Lane Designer Series Paper collection as my color inspiration, I paired it up with Blushing Bride. Aha! An escape from the oranges and browns of fall, and the reds and greens of Christmas!
The wonderful sentiment, from the Falling for Leaves stamp set, was inked in Blackberry Bliss and stamped onto Blushing Bride cardstock. A round Stitched Shapes framelit was used to cut it out.
Blackberry Bliss leaves, from the Rooted in Nature set, were randomly stamped on a layer of vellum, while Blushing Bride ones were cut out and popped up on dimensionals. A few Petal Pink Rhinestone gems add sparkle.
Fresh Fig Mini Ruffled Ribbon covers where a Blushing Bride border, created using the border in the Detailed Leaves Thinlits collection, meets a strip of Nature’s Poem paper.
