CCMC Saturday Blog Hop - Not Your Normal Fall Card

Good Morning, Stampers!


Thank you for joining us today for the Create with Connie and Mary
Saturday Blog Hop! You are going to have fun with this week's
theme - Not Your Normal Fall Card!
What does that mean, you ask? Well, take the hop and see!! 

My card today was inspired by the Cider Mills here in Michigan.
The Orchards here are full of bees - they obviously 
love the cider and donuts as much as we do!
Fresh honey is always a plus, too!

My honey pot was created using the Goulish Grunge 
stamp set and the envelope punch board. 

To create the basic honey pot, lay the long edge of the card 
at the 1" mark and punch. Flip the card and line the opposite 
long adge at the 1" mark and punch. Round all 4 corners.

Cut a piece of Delightful Dijon cardstock to 2" x 4 1/4".
Punch  using the 1" measurement along the short edge.
Flip and repeat on the opposite side. 

Stamp the Goulish Grunge image using Archival Basic
Black ink all the bottom of the cardstock and cut.
Emboss using the seaside embossing folder and 
adhere to the card top.

SU!pplies:
Stamps: Garden in Bloom
Ink: Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke, Delightful Dijon, Archival Basic Black, Crumb Cake
Paper: Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Delightful Dijon
Accessories: Envelope punch board, Linen Thread
