Thank You Card

Share your gratitude in a beautiful way! First, gather your supplies and cut out a card base from Cinnamon Cider Cardstock and fold it in half. Next, trim 4 rectangle pieces from the treat boxes and adhere to your card base. Take a curly stem and unravel the lining from the wire and adhere it to the card to use as a textural layer. Using Soft Succulent ink, stamp the leaf veins to two die-cut leaves and the “Thank you” sentiment to a white label and adhere to card front using dimensionals to complete this elegantly simple card.

Use the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch on Basic White Cardstock and stamp the “You’re a Blessing” sentiment with Early Espresso ink. Attach a Bumblebee colored leaf die-cut to the corner of the punched-out piece.

Color a large Purple Posy Playing with Patterns Resin Dot with the dark Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends and stick to whites of the eyes. Adhere the eyes to the center of the treat box. Use the jack-o-lantern smile die cuts as the eyebrows by turning them upside down and adhering.
