GDP #107 - Thanks using Hello Friend

Good Day Crafty Friends,

Hope your day is going well. Yay, made it to hump day, only a few more days and it's the weekend!!!!! School Holidays can be chaotic times - routines go out the door, the house is a mess, sleep ins occur, meaning everyone fends for themselves at breakfast and lunch time. All of which equates to less crafting time.

I did however manage to whip up a card for this weeks Global Design Project #107. The theme is Grateful. It's also a timely challenge for me, as I have a few Thank You cards I need to make and send out.

I have used a few layers to create this card and totally love it. I started by creating the Wood background, inking the Wood Grain Background stamp in Sahara Sand onto Whisper White card. A layer of vellum was laid over the top and then sewen with a basic stitch. Natural twine was wrapped around four times and then these layers were adhered to a Sahara Sand card base with dimensionals.

The next two layers are cards from the Memories & More Perfect Days pack - both matted using Sahara Sand and Softy Sky. The wreath from Hello Friend was white heat embossed on Sahara Sand card. The flowers have been stamped in Softy Sky. The wreath and flowers were fussy cut and adhered using dimensionals over a vellum scalloped circle. The Layering Circles Framelits were used to create the vellum scalloped circle.

A natural twine bow was added at the top of the wreath with a thanks tag tucked underneath the wreath so the sentiment dangles below. The Sentiment from In The City was cut down from a longer greeting.

The design team over at Global Design Project have created some wonderful 'Grateful' themed cards. Be sure to check them out along with all the stunning participants entries. Or join us all and play along.
Until next time, stay crafty
