Magnificent Maple Grateful Card


This evening I was reminded by my friend Jessi's card post that the deadline for the Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World is midnight tonight. It worked out nicely because I really like the sketch at The Paper Players and I used it to make this Magnificent Maple Grateful Card. I've used a mixture of different patterned papers and they're all from different companies, My Mind's Eye (big woodgrain), American Crafts (light woodgrain), and K & Company (plaid). The Truly Grateful sentiment stamp and the Magnificent Maple stamp are both by Stampin' Up! Before I stamped the maple leaf, I sponged Crushed Curry, Cajun Craze, and Cherry Cobbler ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock. I inked the maple stamp with Cajun Craze and stamped onto the sponged cardstock. Then I fussy cut the maple leaf and adhered it to a 2.5" circle. The accent banners are made from Cherry Cobbler cardstock and the final touch were three Old Olive Candy Dots. I'm also linking this card to the Anything Goes challenge at Make It Monday. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
