Thinking of you

A clean, simple, thinking of you card featuring a yellow mulberry paper rose, jute, vellum leaves, and a woodgrain embossing folder! Come see how to make this simple, yet thoughtful card!

Supplies: rectangle & square dies, woodgrain embossing folder, Cheery Lynn flourish #9, We R Memory Keepers Woodgrain embossing folder, jute string, vellum, Thinking of You sentiment stamp, Staz-on jet black ink, mulberry paper flower color of choice, foam dimensional squares, 110# white cardstock, cream cardstock, 80# white cardstock

Directions: Cut a 5″ x 7″ white cardstock card base (cut an 8.5″ x 11″ to 10″ x 7″ and use a scoreboard & bone folder to fold in half) from heavy cardstock. Building from the bottom layer up, cut one mounting base piece of 4.75x 6.75″ 110# white cardstock, then using the rectangle and square dies cut the top piece from 110# white cardstock. Cut a piece of a white cardstock about 1 inch bigger than the square hole you made, emboss with wood grain embossing folder, cut flourish from vellum, stamp sentiment, set ink with heat tool, cut out with scissors, wrap jute around opening, tie with a square knot (to make a square knot cross the ends of the string right over left then left over right, pull gently).  Layer the woodgrain piece behind the open square with dimensional foam.  Layer the rectangle with woodgrain piece on top of the 4.75x 6.75 piece with the dimensional foam. Mount onto card base. Attach leaves, sentiment and finally the flower with hot glue or other adhesive. Double matt the inside with a creamy light yellow and white.

This design can have many variations using this layout. Use different colors, different twine, colored leaves! What about a pumpkin and gourds and fall leaves? Play with it and see what you come up with!

Happy Crafting Adventures!
