Thoughtful Wishes Card Project: A Touch of Nature & Elegance

Hello, crafty friends!

I’m excited to share a delightful project that I recently completed using the Thoughtful Wishes bundle. This card was so much fun to create, and I’m thrilled with how it turned out. I hope this post inspires you to create your own beautiful cards with this amazing bundle.

Materials Used:
- Mossy Meadow card base
- Thoughtful Designs Specialty DSP (Mossy Meadow and Wild Wheat)
- Basic White cardstock
- Mossy Meadow ink pad
- Stampin' Blends (Mossy Meadow and Wild Wheat)
- Versamark ink pad
- White embossing powder
- Adhesive-Backed Pearl Trio
- Thoughtful Wishes Stamp Set and Dies
- Dimensionals

Step-by-Step Instructions:

1. Card Base & Background:
I started with a Mossy Meadow card base. For the background, I adhered a piece of the Thoughtful Designs Specialty DSP. I love the combination of Mossy Meadow and Wild Wheat in this DSP; it adds such a rich, earthy feel to the card.

2. Stamping & Coloring:
On a layer of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the foliage stamp twice – once directly on the layer and once on a scrap piece. Using Mossy Meadow ink, I stamped the splotch image. For both foliage stamps, I colored them with Stampin' Blends in Mossy Meadow and Wild Wheat. Coloring is such a relaxing part of the process and really brings the images to life.

3. Die Cutting & Dimension:
I adhered the stamped Basic White layer to the card base using Dimensionals to give it some depth. The foliage stamped on the scrap piece was cut out using the coordinating die from the Thoughtful Wishes bundle.

4. Sentiment:
For the sentiment, I chose a stunning script from the Thoughtful Wishes Stamp Set. I stamped it on a piece of Wild Wheat cardstock using Versamark ink and heat set it with white embossing powder. The white embossing on Wild Wheat looks so striking and elegant. I then adhered this to the card and layered the die-cut foliage over the top.

5. Finishing Touches:
To complete the card, I added a few Adhesive-Backed Pearls from the Pearl Trio. These pearls add just the right amount of shine and sophistication to the finished project.


Thoughtful Wishes Bundle:
This bundle includes the Thoughtful Wishes Stamp Set and Dies. It’s perfect for creating focal points with its delicate thistle and greenery stamps. The dies make it easy to cut out the stamped images for a polished, professional look.

Thoughtful Designs Specialty DSP:
  The soft gradation of colors in this 12" x 12" paper is simply stunning. Each sheet has a beautiful pearlized finish that shifts in the light, adding dimension and interest to your projects.

Tips for Success:
- Take your time with coloring to ensure that the shades blend well and add depth to your images.
- Use Dimensionals to create layers and depth, making your card more dynamic and visually interesting.
- Heat embossing your sentiment adds a professional touch and makes it stand out beautifully against colored cardstock.

Final Thoughts:
I absolutely love how this card turned out. The Thoughtful Wishes bundle is incredibly versatile and perfect for adding a touch of nature and elegance to your paper crafts. I hope you enjoyed this project and feel inspired to create your own beautiful cards. Happy crafting!
