Reason for the Season meets Thankful Forest Friends from Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator Sarah Poulton

Happy Friday crafters.

What will your weekend have in store? I am hoping to put my feet up with a cuppa and get some stitching done. I have a few Christmas cards to finish stitching as well as a couple of practice embroidery kits I got at the Kirsty Alsop show a couple of weeks back. Fingers crossed I get a few minutes to have a go.

Today I have a Thank You card I made by combining Thankful Forest Friends and Reason for the Season stamp sets.

I created the background by layering the outline and leaf/petal stamps in a random pattern over my Whisper White layer. I used a 21cm x 14.9cm card base (scored at 10.5cm). I then created a WW layer 10cm x 14.4cm.

For my sentiment layer I cut the Cherry Cobbler layer at 7cm x 4cm. The Whisper White layer which I punched in the corners with the new Trio Corner Punch was 6.5cm x 3.5cm.

I wanted a simple Thank You sentiment to accompany a Hostess Gift so I used my Stampin' Write markers for some creative colouring. I changed the Thankful Forest Friends 'Thankful for You' stamp in to Thank You simply by selectively colouring my stamp. I used the same direct stamp colouring for the multicoloured finished image (leaves and flourish).

I finished with Regals Candy Dots and mounted my sentiment layer on to Dimensionals.
