Stampin' Up! Rustic Harvest Thankful Card for Amy's Inkin' Krew Blog Hop


Welcome to another Inkin’ Krew monthly blog hop! Our very talented team is doing a blog hop featuring Stampin’ Up! products. This month we are all creating projects with a “Giving Thanks" theme. I used the current Heron Habitat, Butterfly Brilliance and Brightest Beauty Stamp Sets along with Rustic Harvest Designer Series Paper.

My inspiration for this fold came from Alyson Mayo. She called it a "Triple Fold Over Card". I'm still not up to speed mentally or physically after Hurricane Ian to go into lengthy "how to" so here's the bare bones...

  • Mossy Meadow card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, score @ 2 1/8 and 6 3/8, burnish and fold into center
  • Rustic Harvest DSP 2 x 5 3/8 (2) for folded flaps
  • Mossy Meadow Bannerized mats: 3 3/4 x 1 3/4 (3)
  • Rustic Harvest DSP 3 1/2 x 1 1/2 (3)
  • Two pumpkins fussy cut from the DSP
  • Sentiment from Heron Habitat, punched with Double Oval
  • Mat from DSP, punched with Double Oval
  • 3 Brushed Brass Butterflies

  • Cajun Craze Mat: 4 1/8 x 5 3/8
  • Basic White Inner Panel: 3 3/4 x 5; Butterfly Brilliance and Brightest Beauty stamps; sponged with Cajun Craze ink
  • DSP for flaps 2 x 5 3/8

I'm entering my card in the Double Trouble Paper Crafting Challenge #122 and playing with all 3 Things, including Jan's Digi Blog Challenge ATG October 2022 .

  4. Karen, it's good to see you back! And a pretty card to boot. I was so concerned about you, I had to email Mary D. to see if she'd heard from you after Ian. I'm a Demo in Minnesota but spend time in Ft. Myers and Bradenton during the winter. I'm hoping to get in touch this winter to see if we could meet in person. Thanks for all your creativity!
