Basket of Wishes Thinking of You Card

Good Morning! 

I have a cute and simple card to show you today. Not a Christmas card 🙂 but it could be a cute thank you card for your hostess if you were invited to Thanksgiving dinner at someone else's house 🙂 This card uses the Basket of Wishes stamp set which can be found in the Stampin Up 2016 Holiday Catalogue, as well as Ghoulish Grunge for that fabulous background!

Stampin Up, Basket of Wishes

How To Make It: 

Start with a cardbase of 4.25” x 11” Crumb Cake cardstock.

Adhere a layer of Delightful Dijon cardstock (4” x 5.25”) to the cardbase.

Stamp the mesh stamp from the Ghoulish Grunge stamp set with Smoky Slate ink on Whisper White cardstock, then adhere this layer to the cardbase.

On Crumb Cake cardstock, stamp the sentiment with Delightful Dijon ink and die cut with the Bunch of Banners Framelits.

On a scrap piece of Crumb Cake stamp the basket image from the Basket of Wishes stamp set and cut out with Paper Snips.

Stamp the sunflower image from Basket of Wishes twice on a some Whisper White scraps. Watercolor the flowers and leaves of stamped sunflower image with Aqua Painters using ink pads as your watercolor palette. 

Tip: To watercolor with ink pads, while the ink pad is closed, squeeze the lid firmly compressing the lid to the foam ink surface – this transfers ink to the inside lid – when you then open the ink pad you can use that ink as a palette for watercoloring with your Aqua Painter. (Simply fill the Aqua Painter with water).

Allow the flower images to dry then cut out with Paper Snips and then adhere with Glue Dots– one behind basket one in front so the basket appears full of flowers. Add to the cardfront.

Cut a length of linen thread tie into bow add with a Glue Dot to the basket. 

Adhere the banner die cut greeting to finish off the card!
