Pumpkin Thank Yous

November 6, 2016

These are the thank you cards from my son’s birthday. I needed to make something that fast and easy to make.


Close up of one card


All six cards in the set


Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 cards

Extra Details:  I started by cutting some strips of patterned paper. The paper is from a Die Cuts With a View Halloween paper pack. I cut the strips to be 2.5” x 5.5”. I added some stitching detail to the edges with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Borders Dies.

I also cut a strip of black card stock for each card. This strip of was 3” x 5.5”. I dry embossed these strips with a dotted embossing folder by Darice. I layered the patterned paper strip on the top of the black strip. Next, I adhered the strips to the white card bases.

I made the sentiment strips next. I stamped the Thanks in black ink. I used three colors of Distress Inks to add color to my sentiment banners. I cut in a fish tail end on each banner and attached them to the cards. As a finishing touch I colored parts of the letters in with a white gel pen.

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s A Good Apple

Dies Used: Lawn Fawn’s Stitched Borders

Ink: Versa Fine

Distress Inks in Carved Pumpkin, Wilted Violet, and Twisted Citron

Hope you enjoyed the cards

Fortune Cookie Birthday

November 5, 2016

My co-teacher’s birthday is in a few days. Here is the card I made her.


The card front


The inside of the card


Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started by stamping and coloring all the images on some water color paper. I used my kids’ Crayola colored pencils to color everything in. Once I was done coloring, I fussy cut all of the images out.

Then, I created a card base. I added some interest to the background with the large snow background from Lawn Fawn’s Snow Cool set. I added the snow to both the bottom and top edge for a different look.

I added a black strip of card stock the front of the card base and adhered my images to it. I used the left over images to decorate the inside of the card.

Stamps Used: Lawn Fawn’s Snow Cool and Good Fortune

Ink: Versa Fine

Memento Dew Drop Inks in Bahama Blue


Hope you enjoyed the card
