Pumpkin Limeade Preserved Woodgrain Thanks and Sneak Peek

Good morning everyone and welcome to Friday! I hope that everyone has some good things planned for this weekend. It’s supposed to rain here today and tomorrow but it’s supposed to be nice on Sunday. Today’s card is a 3 x 3 that I made as a thank you for a friend of mine. The base of the card is Naturals White Card Stock and to that I added a piece of Lucky Limeade that I embossed with the new Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder*. I flagged a piece of Pumpkin Pie and on top of that I stamped the greeting from the new Perfectly Preserved Stamp Set in Lucky Limeade on Naturals White and cut it out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies. The pieces are adhered to the card with a small piece of Sticky Strip. I find that when I mount things to embossed card stock sometimes SNAIL just isn’t enough! The jar and the leaves on the pear are stamped in Lucky Limeade, the pear is markered in Pumpkin Pie and Early Espresso on Pumpkin Pie Card Stock and they are all cut out with the new Cannery Framelits Dies*. The stamps are also from the Perfectly Preserved Stamp Set*. I wrapped a piece of Linen Thread around the top of the jar before I adhered all of the pieces together to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The button is a Brights Collection Designer Button and I threaded some more Linen Thread through the holes before I attached it with a Mini Glue Dot. For a little added detail I stamped the pear and leaves on the envelope. I have made a few 3 x 3 card with the new Perfectly Preserved Stamp Set but as you can see, just by changing a few elements and colors you can have a whole new look! Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to check in. I really appreciate it and love the comments. Have an awesome Friday!
