This week’s Paper Craft Crew Card Challenge #165 is featuring the Hearth and Home Thinlit set. I mentioned in the previous post I love this set. It is so versatile and just makes the most darn cute cards you have ever seen that I’m entering another card for this challenge. The card sketch is below:
This card was one of September Make-n-Take cards. My stampers love this die set and several of them have purchased it already and others have it on their wish list.
This card, also, features the new SU! Brick Embossing folder. It is an outdoor scene using the Hearth & Home Thinlit set. It looks very much like a Spring card, but I couldn’t help myself; I just had to put flowers in the flower box die that comes with the set.
I matted the entire card with a thin layer of Basic Black to make the Cherry Cobbler brick wall stand out. I gave it a worn look by adding Very Vanilla Craft Ink to the embossing folder and then running the mat through the Big Shot. The flowers and leaves were made using punches. The grass was cut out with a die (it might have come from My Favorite Things – I’m not sure since I purchased it from one of my stampers who was getting rid of their stash). The shade was punched with a retired ribbon type punch from Stampin’ Up!. I love this card and I hope you do too.
