Grateful for You with Doodles Paper Playground


Hello Crafty Friends - Today, I  have a Fall card for you.
 This card is perfect for that special someone you need to say you are Grateful for them.

This blend combines rich red and brown tones with just a touch of beautiful gold and green. Its full of glitter, metallic, iridescent & matte elements, including red crystals, gold micro beads and multi-hued no hole beads.

First let's gather our supplies:
Doodles Paper Playground - Very Cranberry Sparkle Blend 
Stamps: Strawberry Jude Grateful Florals
Pattern Paper: American Crafts Autumn Crisp
Car Stock: Recollections Brand Heavy Weight: White & Kraft
Doily: Recollections Brand - Gold
Markers: Spectrum Noir
Heidi Swapp Color Shine: Gold
Tsukineko Memento Ink: Tuxedo Black
Scotch Tacky Glue & ATG

Now let's get started:

1. Stamp and color your images - in my card I choose the pine cone, mums and leaves. I then fussy cut them out. As Well as the sentiment - I also backed the sentiment on a piece of the green burlap pattern paper.

2. Trim a card front panel from the Kraft card stock to A2 (4.25 X 5.5). Next, sprinkle some Heidi Swapp Color shine in Gold. Set a side to dry.

3. Trim the pattern paper(in my card is the plaid paper) to 2 " X 5.5" and trim a strip of pattern paper (green burlap) to a 1/4" of an inch. Then, trim the gold doily in half - save the rest for another project. 

4. Time to assemble your card. Start by adhering the plaid pattern paper toward the bottom of the card front. Next, Adhere the doily half above the plaid paper. Then, adhere the green burlap pattern paper over the doily and plaid pattern paper covering the seams. 

5. Now, arrange and adhere your stamped images over the doily. I placed the mums on the left and leaves on the right. Placing the pine cone in the center. 

6. Now, for the finishing touches. The Sparkle!! I placed the Very Cranberry Sparkle Blend  in clusters of 3's. I choose the gold, green and brown. I add a few drops of glue and then place the sequins on top of it. I add the stamped sentiment to the left bottom corner.

Now the card is complete.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.
