CUTplorations November Challenge | Thankful Barley Card

Hello everyone… I always remind myself and my daughters that there is always one thing we can thank God for every single day.

Today, here’s the inspiration image for the November CUTplorations Challenge. I created a card inspired by the color combo, give thanks phrase some of the wheat grass.

On my card today, I use the Thankful Word DieCrazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies, and Barley ARTplorations Stencil.

I created the background with watercolor paper, Distress Oxide Ink Pads, and water using the smooshing technique. After I got the layers of colors, I added some splatter of water, let it sit for couple seconds, and then I dabbed it off with paper towel. I dried the panel with craft heater and I cut it with the largest size of the Crazy Double Running Stitch Rectangle Nesting Dies.

I added the Barley ARTplorations Stencil on top of the background panel and then using sponge dauber I added the Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink on it. After that, I added some more splatters on it with Finetec Silver Watercolor Paint and then I dried the background panel with craft heater. I added the finished panel on the card base with dries-clear adhesive.

I die cut a white cardstock using the Thankful Word Die and then I added some of the Finetec Gold Watercolor Paint splatters on it. I added the sentiment on the card with 3D foam tape.

I embellished the card by wrapping it with some of the natural burlap twine ribbon.

That’s my Give Thanks theme card for this November CUTplorations Challenge. Oh and… when you use any STAMPlorations products on your projects, you can also link it up at STAMPlorations Neverending Anything Goes Challenge:
