[New Series] Quick and easy cards – Part 3

Hi friends, hope you all had a great thanksgiving! I hope you got a chance to spend some good time with your loved ones, had some good food and overall had a good day. Although I don’t know most of you in person, I feel a connection of friendship. You inspire me with your talent and creativity. I am so grateful to you my friends, for the inspiration, the encouragement, support and kindness. In short? THANK YOU! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Alright, now for some reality check – this post was supposed to be shared about a week ago, so I am very late. But I still decided to go ahead and share rest of the cards from this series because these ideas aren’t just for thanksgiving. You can simply switch up the papers and stickers for another type of card. For this set, I combined stickers with more die cuts and also added a couple wood veneer raccoons. Check them out.

 

For the one above, I tore the paper so that the underside of white showed and then added a hint of walnut stain. I also foam mounted this layer to make it look like a pile of leaves under the tree where a squirrel is eating a nut. The tree was created with an embossing folder from Darice (link below).

For this one, I used a circle die to layer a circle and also used a stamp for my sentiment from the Thankful Heart stamp set from Simon.

For the wood veneer raccoon on this one, I layered it at the back with some black cardstock.

For this one, I dry embossed the card from with Sizzix texture fades Birch embossing folder. I layered two pieces of the same patterned paper panel on top of each other. The bottom one, I tore off and distressed it a bit and in between these leafy patterned paper layers, I made my raccoon sit. I also fussy cut several of the tiny leaves from the left over piece and layered them randomly using foam squares. For the sentiment, I used two of the die cuts words Thanks. This die came from Hero Arts Thanks stamp and die set.
