Hello, and welcome back for another Cardz 4 Guyz challenge. The theme for C4G #268 is Thanks/Thanksgiving. Since I am American, and because I still need a few Thanksgiving cards for next week, I went with that part of the theme.
Here’s my card:
I used a sketch from a recent challenge, but can not remember which challenge. However, I do remember that it closed before this post went live.
What I Did:
- The base of the card is Early Espresso trimmed to 5-1/2 inches x 8-1/2 inches, scored at 4-1/4 inches.
- I chose two patterns from the Gilded Autumn DSP for the larger two squares, which I cropped using the Stitched Rectangle square dies. There’s a very, very thin Early Espresso border around the largest gourd DSP. The middle square has a wider Cajun Craze border. The smallest square has a set of wider borders of Cajun Craze and Early Espresso. I stamped the sentiment, from the Autumn Greetings stamp set, before cropping out the Very Vanilla square. This sentiment just fit inside the smallest square, but the two borders makes this sentiment block a real focal point of the card.
- Once I had my DSP patterns for the squares, I started the process of trying to find a background DSP in wood tones. I picked this one because it picks up the Early Espresso from the base and sentiments. It very subtly picks up the slight orange-y Cajun Craze color. I trimmed the background paper to 4-1/8 inches by 5-3/8 inches.
- After finishing the inside of the card, I adhered a piece of the wood tone DSP to the envelope flap. With that, I’d completed this card/envelope set. Another Thanksgiving card finished, about 6 more to go.
Thank you so much for stopping by today.
