Glitter Queen October Blog Hop - Day 1
Welcome to the Glitter Queens October Blog Hop!
For the next three days myself along with the other Glitter Queen Team members will be hosting a blog hop featuring Fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving inspired projects. Each day when you visit the hop, you will enjoy some amazing creations designed by some very talented Stampin Up Demonstrators, along with chances to win some fabulous Blog Candy!
Today's project is a card set showcasing the Always Thankful stamp set, located in the 2011 Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog. The details in this stamp set, combined with the awesome patterns and colors in the new Spice Cake designer series paper makes these autumn cards true beauties.
To make these cards, I started with a base of Chocolate Chip cardstock measured at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" scored at 4 1/4" for each card. Then I layered a 5 1/4" by 4 " piece of More Mustard cardstock on top of the base, trimming the left edge with the scalloped trim border punch. Attached to the More Mustard piece is a 1 1/2" by 5 1/4" strip of Spice Cake designer series paper for card one that is displayed vertically and a 3" by 4" piece of designer paper adhered to card two that is displayed horizontally. Each card was then wrapped with some Pool Party ruffled ribbon for some added color contrast.
I hope you've enjoyed today's project. Please let me know what you think by posting a comment below.
