I've made a Classic & Elegant style autumnal telescoping circle thank you card. I've used the ever so lovely SU! Day of Gratitude stamp set and a colour combo of Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Old Olive and Very Vanilla. Telescoping circle cards are fun and easy to make, Barb Mullikin has a fab video tutorial here if you'd like to check it out and have a go yourself.
Here's the card all telescoped up ready to place in the envelope. The largest circle is 4" so the card fits into a 4 1/4" square envelope. I inked the stamp with More Mustard ink first, added Old Olive and Cajun Craze inks using sponge daubers, fussy cut it and attached a ribbon pull tab on the back. I popped it up on the Very Vanilla circle. I stamped a More Mustard centre separately, fussy cut it, added an Old Olive brad and popped it up.
Here's the card with two of the circles revealed. I stamped the leaf image onto Very Vanilla CS after stamping off twice and stamped the sentiment over the top in Cajun Craze ink. I cut the sentiment piece out with a Grommet Tag die and matted onto a larger Cajun Craze Grommet Tag. I glued More Mustard patterned paper to the Old Olive circle, glued the tag and added Cajun Craze Candy Dots to the Very Vanilla tag.
Here's the telescoping circles card fully open. I added a gold jump ring to the ribbon tab so that the card can be hung up if desired. I stamped and fussy cut the leaves and glued them to the Very Vanilla circle which is where I wrote my message.
I covered the flap of the envelope with the More Mustard patterned paper to finish off.
So that's what I made - now it's over to you and I'd love to come and see your creations! You can use any card making style, just make sure you link up on this post here. Everyone is welcome at our House!
