Hey guys! I hope you are having a wonderful Saturday so far. Here in Alabama I’m sure some of you know that football is a big thing. Most people eat sleep and breath football and one of our big college teams is the University of Alabama. So with football season fast approaching I decided to design a Alabama Thank You Card.
So here’s what you will need.
- A card base that’s 6 1/2 x 5
- Basic Grey or Smokey Slate card stock cut at 6 1/4 x 4 5/8
- Whisper white cut at 5 1/2 x 4 1/4
- Cherry cobbler card stock cut at 5 1/4 x 3 3/4
- Whisper white cut at 4 1/2 x 3 1/2
- Scrap piece of whisper white and cherry cobbler
- 2 1/2″ circle punch
- 2 1/4 scalloped circle punch
- Elephant stamp (I’m ising the Stampin’ Up! Retired Sereggeti stamp set)
- Thank you stamp
- Basic Gray Archival stamping pad and or any other gray stamp pad
- Real red classic ink pad
Let’s get started. First you need to layer all your card pieces together on your card base. Starting with your basic gray piece. Next add the larger whisper white piece; then your cherry cobbler piece. Set this aside for now. Take your smaller whisper white piece and stamp your elephant on it.
Set this aside to dry a little. While we are waiting on it to dry take your scrap whisper white piece and stamp your thank you. You can really use any sentiment here to create any type of card your choice for your Alabama fan. Using your 2 1/2 inch circle punch punch out your sentiment. Then take your cherry cobbler scrap and using using your 2 1/4 inch scalloped circle punch: punch out a circle with this punch. Add adhesive to the thank you and adhere to the scalloped circle add demionals.
I hope you have fun making this card and you can so easily change this up to your favorite team by changing the stamp and card stock color.
