Welcome to The Creative Inking Blog Hop! Whether you are joining in from the fabulous Lori's Blog or if this is your first stop,WELCOME! I am so glad to have you stop by The Creativity Cave! Our theme this month is Thankfulness and while I could have done a lovely Thanksgiving themed project, I felt it was time to break out some flowers and do a little THANKFULNESS Gift-Giving card making....Does that even make sense? :) LOL!
I think nothing screams true appreciation like a Hand-made gift! There is just something wonderful about giving a gift that you've made--and its a true sign of your appreciation for the recipient to enjoy such a wonderful token of your gratitude!
Gather Your Supplies:
- Thoughtful Banners and Crazy about you stamps
- Medallion and Banner Duet Punches
- 1/2 Sheet of Smoky Slate
- 3 7/8 x 5 1/8" Bermuda Bay (also used Pool Party, Sweet Sugarplum, So Saffron and Wisteria Wonder)
- 3 3/4 x 5 Whisper White plus scraps for punching banners
- Cello Bag
- Tag Topper Punch
So I started with this beautiful card--I used the Thankful Banners (see--THANKFUL is even in the name of that one!) and Crazy About You --for the flower and just created the background with Smoky Slate ink. I then punched a stamped flower and a plain flower using the same ink and cardstock and embellished it with a little Silver Metallic Thread. If you wanted to change things up a bit with a "warmer" color pallet, use Crumb Cake for your card base and some coordinating warm colors such as Peek A Boo Peach, Calypso Coral and Island Indigo among other colors!
These are super cute together!
Add a tag and put them in a cello bag and you are all set!
