A Grateful Heart

Stampin' Up! Four Seasons Stamp Set Card Idea

Tweet, tweet ... This little bird is happy and grateful for autumn!

The sweet Four Seasons Stamp Set set the tone for this card using fall colors of Old Olive, Summer Starfruit, Rich Razzleberry, and Early Espresso. If you look closely, you'll also find a tiny bit of More Mustard and Cajun Craze as well.

For this multi-colored image, I inked the stamp using Stampin' Write Markers. The center portion of the image was stamped a second time, cropped using a circle punch and popped up on top of the original image.

In the background, Rich Razzleberry card stock embossed with the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder, is a pretty backdrop for the die-cut Autumn Accents leaves. Each of the leaves are sponged around the edges - Old Olive, Early Espresso, and Rich Razzleberry for the Summer Starfruit leaves.

The greeting, from the Pursuit of Happiness Stamp Set, was also inked using markers and cropped with the Decorative Label punch. It sits atop Rich Razzleberry Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon backed with a strip of Very Vanilla Seam Binding.
