I'm so thrilled to be sharing a little Autumn card gift with you today! From the moment that I first saw the new Grateful Heart stamp set, I knew that I needed to make a little card gift set. The heartfelt sentiments in this set needed to be shared with a friend, they are just too lovely to keep to myself! :-) What makes this set perfect for creating mini (or full sized) card sets is that there are several to choose from.
First, I want to share the little gift bag that I created. It's the perfect size to tuck the mini cards and envelopes in. I started by embossing the sweet pumpkin (also from the Grateful Heart stamp set) in gold and then adding some watercolor. I then decorated the bag using strips of scrap papers, a canvas tag, a clothes pin, and the cutest little wooden button. For the finishing touch, I added a strip of dark brown cardstock with one of the Grateful Heart sentiments embossed in gold.
The first little card I created features my favorite sentiment from the set. I embossed it using black detail embossing powder on a simple watercolor wash background. The only sentiment that I added was the sweet and tiny heart.
The next card features the gorgeous leaves included in the set. I embossed them in gold, encircling the sentiment. I added some color using my watercolors.
I don't' like to play favorites, but this card is probably it. That mushroom and the wood slice image are just the cutest things ever!
Thanks so much for joining me here today! And thanks to Nicole for allowing me to share my little project with you!
