Give Thanks with Martha

Hello dear friends, it's Martha Lucia hosting the blog today. I made this card using a mix of papers from different collections and one of my favorite stamp sets for the fall season.

Of course I used my PowderPuff Chalk Ink to stamp my images because I love how it looks on my papers. Take a look at my card:


I created this card with a pocket style thinking that it could also be an envelope. I can put a note or gift card inside. Making this was very simple:
  1. Cut the base of the card. The size is 4-1/4"x11" and I used the Chiffon 104 to create this.
  2. Make a score line in 5-1/2" and then in 1-1/2" to create the pocket.
  3. Fold the last score in the opposite side and paste over the green side.
  4. Decorate the border with a tiny line of Whistlin Dixie 108.
  5. Stamp the different leaves of the stamp set over different pieces of Whistlin Dixie 108, Chiffon 101 and Urban Oasis 103. I used Powder Chalk Ink Mahogany, Evergreen and Rusty Nail respectively.
  6. Fussy cut the leaves with the scissors and paste over the border.
  7. Decorate the union of the leaves with a button.
  8. Stamp the sentiment using Midnight Confessions PowderPuff Chalk Ink.
