Completely satisfied Thanksgiving to all my Canadian followers and mates. I hope you’re capable of rejoice at this time ultimately. Whereas most of us take pleasure in a welcome time without work, not everyone seems to be so fortunate. I’m considering notably of all of the medical and emergency staff who will spend their day doing their job as regular whereas the remainder of us calm down. And it’s not simply those that are formally employed in these roles who deserve our thanks. Dwelling in rural Nova Scotia we glance to our volunteer hearth division for fast assist not solely with fires, however highway site visitors accidents and medical emergencies too. They’re those who won’t hesitate to depart their houses and households to assist us once we want it most. My hubby is a volunteer and I understand how laborious everybody works to coach and put together for the unknown. In the present day of all days I need to acknowledge their contribution to our neighborhood, and say how grateful I’m for all they do.
This fast undertaking was one I made as a part of my World Card Making Day “24 playing cards in 24 hours” marathon. It makes use of on the versatile Ornate Thanks Stamp Set, however first I wanted to create some fast layers.
I began with a single sheet from the Tidings of Christmas 6″ x 6″ Designer Sequence Paper (DSP) pack. I lower a 3″ x 5-1/2″ piece in addition to a 3″ x 5-1/2″ piece of Sahara Sand Card. Then utilizing Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow) I mounted the 2 collectively. This might give the DSP a bit extra energy for after I added it to the cardboard later. Subsequent I used Tear & Tape Adhesive to connect some gold 3/8″ Effective Artwork Ribbon alongside one of many lengthy edges. Then I set the assembled piece apart whereas I received on with the remainder of the undertaking.
Taking the colors on the DSP as my inspiration I made a decision on Sahara Sand Card for the cardboard base. Utilizing my Paper Trimmer I lower and scored the cardboard, then folded it alongside the scored line and sharpened the crease with a Bone Folder.
From the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set I selected the big “So grateful” sentiment and smaller “for all you do”. To assist with putting them I rested my layered DSP piece onto the cardboard entrance up towards the crease. Then after stamping the smaller sentiment in the direction of the underside utilizing Night Evergreen ink I added the bigger one above it.
With the feelings in place I then connected the DSP layer to the cardboard entrance utilizing Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Turning again to the remainder of the DSP sheet I lower a 2-1/4″ x 6″ strip. Utilizing liquid glue I connected this to the flap of a Primary White Medium Envelope. Then with Paper Snips I trimmed off the surplus paper utilizing the sting of the flap as a information.
All I had left of the DSP was a 3/4″ x 6″ strip and I trimmed that right down to 5-1/4″. Then I lower a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Primary White Card and glued the DSP strip alongside the underside edge. Lastly with extra liquid glue I mounted the layer inside the cardboard base, and my undertaking was full.
I’ve to say that I really like the flexibility of the Ornate Thanks Stamp Set. The big “Thanks” and “Thanks” in addition to “So grateful” are attractive. Plus there’s 16 smaller sentiments to combine and match providing you with an enormous number of choices. In case you haven’t seen the set, do test it out. I wouldn’t be with out it.
