Papertrey Ink Throwback Thursday {Grateful}

Happy Halloween, friends! I hope you all have a safe and frightfully fun evening filled with Tricks and Treats! As the "spooky season" comes to a close, our thoughts turn to gratitude as Thanksgiving draws near. I chose to revisit the charming Fence Line: Autumn stamp set to create a seasonal card of thanks for this week's Papertrey Ink Throwback Thursday feature!

To begin this fun design, I die cut all of the pieces using the Fence Line: Autumn die collection and got to work inking them up. Once that was done, I set them aside to work on the other design elements included on this card.

The card base is a 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 inch top folding A2 card base cut from Dark Indigo cardstock. I added a scallop piece that was die cut using the Scallop Stackers: Medium die collection out of Prairie Grass cardstock using foam squares for dimension.

I used Enchanted Evening ink and a blending brush to add the ink around the perimeter of a 3 3/4 inch by 5 inch piece of Linen Cardstock. I really love ink blending on this cardstock because it brings out the lovely texture!

I rounded the corners and stamped the "grateful" sentiment in black using the You Made My Day stamp set at the bottom. I also die cut the Shape Shifters: Circle 3 die out of Linen Cardstock. I used a circle die cut to add the blended portion to the middle.

I added the circle portion to the center of the card and then got to work adding in all of the stamped and die cut pieces using foam squares. I also added some ink flecks around the perimeter using a marker and a color spritzing tool. A few sparkling clear sequins finish this off! Thanks for fluttering by!

Just a little note to tell you how much I look forward to your posts. They are always so professional and the little details you add are inspiring, to say the least! (FYI, the link on PTI Throwback Thursday takes us to Thurston Post, not your blog...)
