The house is warm and inviting, the candles are lit, and the turkey is in the oven! Today’s card uses the Window Wishes Stamp Set, Windows Dies, and the Painted Pheasant Stamp Set. Don’t you just want to step inside and get a whiff of all of the good aromas?
I started off by stamping the window wreath, candles and flames, then used the coordinating dies from the Window Dies set to cut these out. I also die cut the window outline, and the inside window frame as well as a bow for the wreath.
Next, I used the Brick & Mortar 3D Embossing Folder to emboss a Cajun Craze panel. After all, our little house is made of brick! The embossed panel was adhered to a Cajun Craze mat. A length of Satin Edged Ribbon was wrapped around the bottom of this panel and the ends were secured to the back using Tear & Tape. The panel was then adhered to the card front.
Daffodil Delight ink was used to blend ink across the window insert. I concentrated the ink towards the center of the window insert. The candles are giving off a nice glow – all to set the scene! Once the ink blending was completed, I fit the window outline and window insert together face down and used Stampin’ Dimensionals to hold the pieces together. The window unit was then adhered to the card front and slightly overlapping the ribbon.
The window frame was adhered to the inside of the window. The flames were adhere to the candles and these were adhered to the bottom of the window sill. The bow was attached to the wreath and the wreath was adhered towards the top of the window.
The “Happy Thanksgiving” sentiment was stamped in Cajun Craze ink onto a strip of Crushed Curry cardstock. Leaves from the Painted Pheasant Stamp Set were stamped in Crushed Curry on the sentiment label, and I cut the label at an angle on the right. The sentiment label was adhered to the bottom of the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I used a Textural Element on the card front which overlaps the bottom of the window and the sentiment label. The Textural Element was colored in with a Cajun Craze Stampin’ Blend.
For the inside card panel, I used a piece of Washi Tape to mask off about a 1/2″ on the right side of the panel. I then repeatedly stamped the leaf image from the Painted Pheasant Stamp Set in Crushed Curry ink to form a border. The Washi tape was removed and an additional sentiment was stamped on the inside card panel. The panel was then matted to a Cajun Craze mat and this unit was adhered to the inside of the card.
The same leaves were stamped on the envelope front and envelope flap to finish off the card.
I love Christmas, but I think Thanksgiving remains my most favorite holiday! How about you – which holiday do you prefer? Christmas or Thanksgiving? Let me know in the comments below!
