Artful Delight Friday - Thankful for You



Hey everyone!  I'm here to share my Artful Delight card for this week.  Very clean and simple this week.  I decided to focus on this gorgeous print from the Basic Grey Persimmon collection. 

I cut a strip of the patterned paper, stamped the sentiment, and centered it over the same portion of the pattern on the main piece.  I wanted to create a definitive shadow/dimension underneath, so I put a piece of navy patterned paper (which is kind of a misnomer because that piece isn't really patterned) directly beneath it before popping it out with foam adhesive. 


A thin strip of the navy paper, also adhered with foam adhesive serves as a border and I added a few of the flower sequins from the kit as well.

So glad you could come by today!  Have a wonderful weekend!

Supplies Used:  Artful Delight October Card Kit; CTMH - Outdoor Denim ink, Dimensional Foam Tape; Liquid Glass; Tombow - Mono Adhesive
