Magnificent Monday

Magnificent Monday Guest: Sandy Mathis!

Greetings, Stampers, and Happy Monday! Actually, it is a Magnificent Monday as I am a featured guest stamper on the Pink Paper Bakery blog today. I'm very honored, and thanks, Deena! I created this project with that in mind, and as usual, I used a couple of challenges for my inspiration. The leaves were created with the Gently Falling Stamp Set. Gently Falling is a two-step stamp set. First, you stamp the first layer in your base ink color. The outline of the leaves is stamped on top with a darker color ink. Then I cut the leaves out by hand. The greeting is from a retired set called Grateful Greetings. I think it's just the perfect greeting for a Thanksgiving card. 


There is lots and lots of texture going on here, perfect for an autumnal card. The strip of burlap provides rough texture. I found my burlap in the paper crafting department of one of the big box stores, and it came in a package of eight small squares. The background was created with the Stampin' Up Woodgrain Embossing Folder and Core'dinations Card Stock. After embossing the card stock, you sand it a little with a sanding block to reveal the lighter core of the card stock. It's really easy and fun to do, and the results are awesome! Natural Cotton Ribbon, Linen Thread, and a wood-like button finish things off.
