Welcome to InKing Royalty’s October Blog Hop! During this year’s blog hops, we are enjoying a year of celebrations. This month’s projects celebrate Thanksgiving, so prepare yourself for Autumn landscapes, warm colors and sweet reminders of all the reasons we have to be grateful this time of year. We are excited to share our creations with you today! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.
I saw this sketch, by Crystal O. Minkler, on Instagram. This sketch challenge is just the second of the Build Your Stash Holiday Hop. Another place for sketch inspiration is always a good thing!
Here’s my card:
Here’s the sketch from Instagram:
Following the Sketch
The base of the card is Cajun Craze, trimmed to 4-1/4 inches by 11 inches and scored at 5-1/2 inches. The Very Vanilla cardstock for the inside of the card is trimmed to 4 inches by 5-1/4 inches.
I followed the measurements exactly as shown on the sketch. I really thought there would be too much bulk with all the layers, but there really isn’t. All of the patterned paper, including the speckled base, comes from the Gilded Autumn DSP pack. Not only are the colors gorgeous, the patterns are all spectacular! Best part – it’s 15% off until the end of the month! SCORE!
The only place I used dimensionals was under the short ends of the sentiment panel. This allowed the sentiment to lay flat over the multiple layers of DSP and cardstock.
I used Stamping Write markers on the four leaf stamp from Autumn Greetings to create the inside stripe on the side of the card. I colored each leaf a different color; Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, and Crumb Cake. However, I did stamp the same pattern each time.
The sentiments on the front and the inside are also from Autumn Greetings. It’s such a beautiful stamp set, and I just love the font!
I used a Very Vanilla envelope and trimmed a piece of the speckled DSP to 2-1/5 inches by 6 inches for the envelope flap. After I finished adhering that DSP to the flap, I trimmed it down. Ta-Da! I’d completed another card/envelope set.
