Life is Beautiful, Thinking of You Card, 2020 Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog

I needed to make a quick thinking of you or get well card. Thinking of you covers that and in my case, this card is late and hopefully the one receiving it is well on their way to recovery, so thinking of you works better. I thought I would play with the  "Life is Beautiful" set again before it goes from fall to a winter tree.  We had super strong winds here last week and all of the trees in our neighborhood are bare now. We got all the leaves raked up and the ground is ready for winter. But it can hold off for a while longer. As much as I love the snow, I am not ready for it yet.

So, onto my card.  The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Pumpkin Pie card stock.

On top of that is a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White card stock.

I stamped the tree from the "Life is Beautiful" set using Soft Suede ink. 

The leaves were stamped using Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry, and Crushed Curry ink. 

I took my Pumpkin Pie marker and flicked some ink on the card. To flick it you just take the tip of the marker and put it on the inside of the cap about 1/8" in and then push the tip of the marker outward. The ink flicks off the pen and spatters on the card stock.  It's fun but I often wonder if it will ruin the markers.

The words are from the same set and were stamped on a scrap piece of card stock using Soft Suede ink. I die cut them using the oval die and I die cut a Pumpkin Pie layer using the scalloped oval that was just a little bit larger. I taped the ovals together and I added Dimensionals to the back.

I had some twine/thread leftover from a previous Paper Pumpkin kit so I thought I'd use it on this card. I wrapped it around three fingers and taped the ends together with a couple of glue dots.  I set the thread on the card and then I set the oval in place.

A 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Whisper White was added to the inside of the card and it was done.  

I told you it was a quick card. This could also be used or a masculine birthday, get well or sympathy card. It's got some versatility to it.

Thank you SO much for taking the time to have a look today,
