Framed for You, Forever Fern, Good Morning Magnolia, Thinking of You Card

I took out my "Framed for You" set and thought I'd make a fall card with it. Here's what I came up with. I had seen a card made using some leaves in a circle from another set and thought this set would work. It's smaller but it worked.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Whisper White card stock. 

I took a 3-3/8" x 3-3/8" piece of Whisper White card stock to stamp my leaves on. I punched out a 1-1/2" circle mask from copier paper and used removable tape to hold it in the center of my piece. Then I stamped the leaves. Looking at the circle as a clock, I stamped the Crushed Curry color first at 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock. Then I stamped Granny Apple Green next to the Crushed Curry going clockwise. I did this all around. The next color is Pumpkin Pie and the final color is Rich Razzleberry. I accidently stamped an extra Rich Razzleberry and I bet you didn't notice until I mentioned it.  I think it would be prettier if I had squished the leaves together more so more Rich Razzleberry leaves could be added. I like the look.  But it's done and it's still pretty colorful!  

After I stamped the leaves I added some Rich Razzleberry dots to the image. The dots are from the "Forever Fern" set. 

The words are from the "Good Morning Magnolia" set and were stamped on a scrap piece of Whisper White using Rich Razzleberry ink. I did heat set my ink because I've been having bad luck lately with the ink not being dry enough before I touched it. I die cut the words using the 1-5/8" circle die. I set the words in place on top of the stamped leaves. The word circle is just a little bit larger than the circle I used as a mask.

I cut a 3-5/8" x 3-5/8" piece of Rich Razzleberry card stock for the layer. I taped the two pieces together.

Then I cut two 3/8" x 5-1/2" pieces of Pumpkin Pie card stock strips.  I taped them to the front of the card. I tried to center them as much as possible.  Then I taped the focal piece in place and the card was done.  

It's sweet and simple. Oh and very colorful! This would make a great masculine birthday card too. There's no lacy frills or big bows on it!! A get well card, thank you card, and a thank you card.

Thank you SO much for taking the time to stop by today,
