November Stamp of the Month Card Set

Close to my Heart’s November Stamp of the Month called It’s the Little Things is a really fun set. I created this card as part of a card set to share during my presentation at the CTMH Convention a few months ago to show the versatility of the Fall themed Pathfinding Collection. I really love the Glacier and Chocolate color combination. You would never know that the paper came from a Fall themed collection. I stamped the leaves from It’s the Little Things SOTM on some White Daisy cardstock and then cut them out with CTMH’s Micro-Tip Scissors. The flowers were cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.

To make the card above, I started with a piece of 11" x 4¼" Chocolate cardstock and scored it in half. I trimmed off  2¼" from the top front of the card leaving a 2" flap in the front. I then matted a piece of 4" x 5¼" White Daisy cardstock on the inside and a piece of 1¾" x 5¼" patterned paper on the front panel. I stamped the sentiment on the top right in Chocolate ink and added the die cut flowers, the trimmed out leaves, and a few Gold Bling Gems on the front panel to finish it off.

This is what the whole card set looks like. (I used this set as inspiration for my July project kit here, which you can still order.)

I embellished a Journaling Card Box to hold all of the cards and envelopes.

Here are the other cards that are in the set. The other products I used to make them are the Floral Embossing Folder,  Lifetime of Happiness stamp set, Spring Banner stamp set, and scallop border punch.

So, what do you think? Do you love the November Stamp of the Month as much as I do? Did you know that you can get it for just $5 with a $50 order? But hurry. This set is only available through November 30th.
