The theme this month is Gratitude! Here is my card:
This is a FUN card! I was inspired by BJ Peters, she used this idea but with Eastern Elegance, you can find her card here. I was thinking of other stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! that could be used with this idea of the front flap opening to reveal a sentiment. This is the set that I thought of! Once you pull back the flap, here is what you see:
The inside is a simple piece of cardstock:

The card I am sharing with you today is from the stamp set Hello Friend! I shared this card with you last time:
I, once again, looked in the Catalog for Inspiration! This is the image that struck me as something I wanted to try:
This is using the kit on page 16 & 17: Hello Friend Heat Embossing Project Kit. I don’t have the kit……….yet, but have the stamp set and wanted to give this a try. I DID have the Gold mini sequins! Those are just too stinkin’ cute!! I was giggling when I got them! It doesn’t take much (in the card making world) to make me happy!
I didn’t have the kit, but I loved the way the wreath looked on Crumb Cake, so I was using that. I wanted a lighter green (than pictured) so I used Wild Wasabi as my green. LOVE how the flowers are so white so I wanted to use Versamark and White Embossing Powder. Here is what my card looks like:
Isn’t it pretty? And not too many steps, sometimes simplicity is the best way to go!!
The sentiment is on Whisper White 1 3/4″ x 1 1/4″, then I used the Envelope Punch Board to round two opposite corners, to give a really pretty look! I popped this up with dimensions after putting some adhesive on the card in the middle of the Wreath and laid down the Gold Mini sequin ribbon. The ribbon is free to move on both ends, only the middle is stuck down.
The Gold Foil Paper is 5″ x 3 3/4″, but I cut around the inside edges to make a frame since you can’t see it and I didn’t want to waste any of it!! The top Crumb cake is 4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″.
Easy but definitely stunning! In person, it’s even better!!

I bought the new stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Hello Friend because it looked like it would be a fun stamp set to use! I was NOT disappointed!
I went out on Pinterest to see what others have done with this set, and you know what? NOTHING was out there! So, what is a girl to do? I checked out the SU! catalog, that’s what I did! And you know what, they had the BEST idea in there! Here’s what they have:
This is using the Hello Friend Heat Embossing Project kit on page 17. I loved it, but of course had to make it my own. Plus, I don’t have the kit…….yet! You really should go take a look, you will love how easy and beautiful this kit is!
Here is mine:
Isn’t it beautiful!! And the idea came right out of the catalog!
Flirty Flamingo 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″
Black 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
Watercolor Paper 5″ x 3 3/4″
I used Aqua Painters and the re-inkers for Flirty Flamingo and Peekaboo Peach.
I will have the items I used below, just click on the picture and it will take you straight to my Online Store!
I also have Blog Candy! The drawing is on July 4th! You just need to comment on any of my social media posts! Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or here on my blog, anywhere! EVERY comment counts!
