Grateful Heart Note Card

** 9/20/13 Featured Artist at The Kraft Journal! **
** 9/10/13 Top 3 Challenge Winner at The Kraft Journal! **
** 9/7/13 Chat & Challenge Winner at StampTV! **

Okay, I got my other note card photographed this morning so I'm back to post it! I played in the scrap room yesterday and created a couple note cards with some of the new Gina K Designs stamps and paper. I'm just loving these bold autumn/fall colors with the kraft, brown and red cardstocks! OMG! I have a bit of "fall fever" anyway, and this card just did me in! ;)

Again, I chose clean and simple for my "Grateful Heart" thank you note card and followed a layout/sketch. I love sketches and just don't seem to play with them very often, so I'm indulging myself! I used primarily kraft cardstock layered on chocolate brown, with one piece of patterned paper also layered on the chocolate brown. I love vertical sentiments and created a two-layer banner with distressed edges for this one. I used two leaf stamps, one as the focal image on the front and the other on the inside, stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa ink. I even layered the gross grain ribbon on a piece of the chocolate brown cardstock. Just love this! ;)

Here's a peek at the inside... with plenty of room to write that "thank you" note!

I'd love to enter this note card into the following challenges:

  • GKD Pure Luxury Ivory, Chocolate, Kraft and Tomato Soup cardstock
  • GKD Grateful Heart 6x6 patterned paper
  • GKD Grateful Heart stamp set (both leaves and sentiment)
  • Memento Rich Cocoa ink
  • Ranger Dried Marigold distress ink
  • Ranger Walnut Stain distress ink
  • GKD Tomato Soup (coordinate) gross grain ribbon
  • Kool Tak clear foam squares

Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
