Heartfelt Creations - Giving Thanks Slimline

 Hi and welcome!

I hope you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving. 

I was thinking about Thanksgiving and feeling grateful for my life when I created this card using the fabulous Cyber Monday die.

Instructions: Slimline card size is 4 x 9”. Score and fold 8 x 9” black cardstock at 4” on the short side to create side fold card base. Using the outer die from the Slim Star Lattice Rectangle Die set, cut the Seasonal Wreath Paper Collection sheet 8B. Using the inside plain edge die, cut sheet 1B from the same collection. Using the outer die and the two lattice dies, cut from black cardstock and from Luxe Gold cardstock. Sponge the black lattice diecut with dries clear adhesive and cover with Martha Stewart Onyx glitter. When dry, adhere to the Luxe Gold diecut slightly offset so that the gold is just peeking out from behind the black. Adhere the previous cut darker green paper behind the center of the black and gold diecuts and then adhere the 4 x 9” lighter green designer paper behind the whole piece. Adhere to the card front. Cut Luxe Gold cardstock 3 7/8 x 8 7/8”, cut sheet 1B 3 3/4 x 8 3/4”, adhere together and adhere to the inside of the card. Using the plain edge inside Slim Star Lattice Rectangle Die, cut from sheet 8B, stamp the sentiment ‘I am so grateful for you’ from the For My Friend Sentiments Cling Stamp set using Bright Tangelo ink and adhere to the inside of the card.

Stamp the Large Wild Rose and the Small Wild Rose on Deluxe Flower Shaping Paper using Bright Tangelo ink, color using Vivid Chartreuse and Bright Tangelo inks, diecut with the coordinating dies and add a little more color to the edges of the flowers and color the backs using the Bright Tangelo. Place face down in the coordinating 3D molds, spritz with water and run through the die cutting machine. Use the Deluxe Flower Shaping tools to add more shape. Put three flowers together slightly offset to create each wild rose. Add a puddle of hot glue to the flower centers and cover with Orange Juice prills. 

Stamp the Leafy Accents leaves with Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy ink and color using the same ink. Diecut using the coordinating die and add more color to the edges of the leaves for more depth. Color the backs, place face down in the mold, spritz with water and run through the die cutting machine.

Sponge the flowers and leaves with dries clear adhesive and sprinkle with Rajni Chawla’s Crystal Clear glitter and adhere to the card front as shown using hot glue. 

Stamp the ‘thank you’ sentiment from the Thank You Sentiments Cling Stamp set on Luxe Gold cardstock using VersaMark, cover with Ranger Black Super Fine Detail Embossing Powder, heat set using the Heat It tool and diecut using the banner die from the Arrows and Banner Die set. Adhere to the card front using dimensional squares.
