Indigo Limeade Woodgrain Preserved Thanks

Hello everyone! How are we all doing this Sunday morning? It’s was beautiful here yesterday for most of the day. I had a nice day in Manhattan and went to dinner last night with my parents and my daughter. It’s very fall like and chilly here this morning. How is the weather by you today. Are you missing the summer already like I am?

Today’s post is a thank you card that I made Leigh for my bracelet that I got back on my birthday. The base of the card is Island Indigo Card Stock. A piece of Early Espresso Core’dinations Card Stock is embossed with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and sanded with the Stampin’ Sanding System. The greeting is from the Friendship Preserves Stamp Set and is stamped in Raspberry Ripple and cut out with the Window Frames Collection Framelits Dies. To back it, I cut out a piece of Lucky Limeade and pierced the edges using the Festive Paper-Piercing Pack. I used the Stampin’ Spritzer to spritz some Early Espresso Ink on it and then faux stitched the piercing with my Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker. A piece of the Orchard Harvest Designer Series Paper is adhered to the card and a piece of Island Indigo 3/8″ Ruffled ribbon on top before I mounted the stamped image and backing to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I love paper-piercing and probably use it a little more than I should but I think it gives that subtle extra that sometimes you need. I hope that you enjoyed today’s card and thank you for visiting. Have a wonderful day! 🙂
