Simon Says Stamp | Grateful For You Card (Blog Hop + Giveaway)

Hello friends! I’m delighted to be joining a very special blog hop today put together by my friend Ruby to celebrate our crafty world and crafty friendships. Today I have a simple card to share that is all about being grateful and appreciative of everything in our lives.

CARD DETAILS

I started making this card by creating a background. I used Tonic Studios Golden Crystal Glimmer Paste and Simon’s Circular Lace Stencil on kraft paper for this rich, glittery look. I applied a heavy layer of the paste and let it dry overnight.

Next, I gold heat embossed “I’m So Grateful You’re My Mom” sentiment from the Love You Mama stamp set. I only wanted to use the top part of the sentiment, “I’m So Grateful” and substitute the bottom part with “For All You Do“. I die-cut the sentiment out using a coordinating die, at the same time I white heat embossedFor All You Do” part in white embossing powder.

I also wanted to add a wreath to this card to help frame my sentiment. I gold heat embossed one from the Wreath Greetings stamp set on kraft, cut it out using a coordinating die and foam mounted onto my background, which in turn was adhered onto an A2 white card base. I used a white pen and colored the details on the wreath white.

Finally, I adhered my sentiments in place forming one new message – “I am so grateful for all you do”.
