Wishing You A Harvest Of Blessings
I decided to create a Clean and Simple (CAS) card for LeAnne's #362 “CAS Harvest” Challenge at The Paper Players using the Harvest Mouse stamp set from My Favorite Things™ (MFT).
I already had a few of the mouse images along with the pumpkins, etc. stamped and colored in my stash so I decided to pull them out and create this quick card.
I also incorporated the CAS(E) This Sketch #240 Challenge into the design and along with the AAA Cards Game #99 “Autumn Colours” .
I hope you have taken the time to visit each of the challenge sites listed above, and if not, I encourage you to do so- gorgeous inspiration from all!
To create this card:
1). Ink the Harvest Mouse images with Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock. Heat set the ink (I usually do this to speed up the drying process) and color the images with water-based and alcohol markers.
2). Score a piece of Whisper White cardstock (for the angles on the sketch), de-static the paper with an embossing powder tool, stamp the sentiment with Versafine™ Onyx Black Ink, apply clear embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool.
3). Trim a piece of Pumpkin Pie cardstock, adhere the embossed card front to the panel and mount the entire panel onto a white card base.
4). Die cut the Harvest Mouse images with the coordinating MFT Harvest Mouse dies, mount onto the card front with dimensional foam and add a few blue sequins to finish off the card.
