Stampin’ Up! Countryside Corners Thank You Card

Today’s card uses the Countryside Corners Dies, Countryside Inn 12″ x 12″ Designer Series Paper, and the Countryside Blossoms Embossing Folder. I also brought in some small flower images from the Country Bouquet Stamp Set and a sentiment from the Something Fancy Stamp Set. I’m loving the contrast of the Wild Wheat small, stamped branches and the Wild Wheat Textured Ribbon against all of the blue! The small flower images in the Country Bouquet Stamp Set go perfectly with the Countryside Corners set!

I started off by using the Countryside Blossoms Embossing Folder to emboss a basic white panel. I then used a blending brush to lightly blend Misty Moonlight ink over the embossed surface. The panel was then adhered to a Misty Moonlight card base.

I cut several octagons using the Countryside Corners Dies – a larger octagon in a pretty bird print from the Countryside Inn Designer Series Paper, and a smaller octagon from Balmy Blue cardstock. These octagons were adhered to each other, then adhered to the card front.

An even smaller octagon was cut from Basic White cardstock and this octagon will serve as the sentiment label. I used the small flower image from the Country Bouquet Stamp Set and stamped the small flowers in opposite corners using Misty Moonlight ink. The small branch image was stamped in Wild Wheat opposite the flowers, and small hearts were stamped in Balmy Blue ink across the top and bottom of the sentiment label. The thank you sentiment from the Something Fancy Stamp Set was stamped in the center in Night of Navy ink.

Two short lengths of Wild Wheat Textured Ribbon were attached to the center of the Balmy Blue octagon using Stampin’ Seal, then the sentiment label was adhered over top of the ribbon using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The same flower images were stamped onto the inside panel and the panel was adhered to the inside of the card.

The same stamped images from the Country Bouquet Stamp Set were repeated on the envelope front. A piece of coordinating designer series paper was adhered to the envelope flap and I trimmed the excess paper away from the flap. Multiple blue 2023-2025 In Color Dots were adhered to the sentiment label to finish off the card.

All of the products used to create this card will be available tomorrow, May 2 in the Online Store!
