Good morning, y’all! I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend – we have gorgeous Fall weather – it’s warm enough to keep the windows open at night and cool enough to keep them that way all day! I love it! And – there’s leaves on the ground EVERYWHERE – so…it’s got that Fall SMELL, too! My fave!
My card today is another one that you might decide you’d like to make to send out this year – and it features the wonderful Magical Meadow bundle and gorgeous Winter Meadow DSP. Y’all have told me you like Christmas cards that have a sentiment on the inside – like…”Merry Christmas” so…the Stars at Night filled the bill! Take a look-see:
This framed-up layout was inspired by the sketch challenge over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.
And the soft and pretty color palette is from the color challenge at the Global Design Project this week.
I started by stamping the large and beautiful bough image from the Magical Meadow stamp set onto the front and inside of the Petal Pink card base in Petal Pink ink for a tone-on-tone look. I only stamped it in a triangle on the bottom portion of the panels – using a piece of printer paper to “mask” the other side of the card base.
Using the largest Deckled Rectangle die, I cut out a Pretty Peacock mat. To save a little cardstock (and weight), I used the second-from-smallest of the dies to cut out a smaller rectangle from the middle of the die cut – and then I set that aside for later.
I used the next-to-largest Deckled Rectangle to cut out a piece of Winter Meadow DSP, which I adhered to the Pretty Peacock mat with Liquid Glue. Then I used Liquid Glue to adhere that smaller rectangle in the middle of the card front.
The next layer is a piece of the Winter Meadow DSP – cut with the next-to-smallest Deckled Rectangle – and adhered with Liquid Glue.
I made a Petal Pink frame, using the fifth- and sixth-from smallest Deckled Rectangle to cut from Petal Pink Three Color Glimmer Specialty Paper (coming on 7 Nov as an Online Exclusive). It’s adhered in place with Liquid Glue.
On a piece of Basic White, I stamped the Magical Meadow sentiment in Pretty Peacock ink and cut it out with the smallest Deckled Rectangle. Then I adhered it with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I used three of the dies in the Magical Meadow die set to cut out some foliage. I used Basic White, Lost Lagoon paper from the Snowflake Magic Specialty DSP and Pretty Peacock paper from the Three Color Glimmer Specialty Paper. Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the three die cut boughs to the card front.
I tied a small bow from white Baker’s Twine and adhered it with a Glue Dot.
Finally, I added some Petal Pink Pastel Adhesive-backed Sequins and the card front was done!
For the inside, I used the next-to-largest Deckled Rectangle to cut out a Basic White panel. I stamped the Stars at Night sentiment in Pretty Peacock. Then I added the pretty Magical Meadow bough image in the corner in Petal Pink and Lost Lagoon inks.
I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to my Pretty Peacock mat (another largest Deckled Rectangle) and then into my Petal Pink card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Basic White Medium Envelope got the Magical Meadow boughs on the front…
…and more of the Winter Meadow DSP on the envelope flap.
Et Voila! Oh boy – the dies in the Magical Meadow set are some of my favorites – I just love all that pretty, delicate foliage – and I love mixing up the papers that I used to cut them out! The Winter Meadow DSP is characterized by the soft colors and organic images and is just beautiful!
I hope you like!

The pastures have gotten to where there’s a lot to eat but not a lot of “green” – so Cady has been craving green stuff.
So – I took her out in hand the other morning – usually I just let her wander loose while I clean the barn but…the day before she…sort of took advantage of that. So – it’s on the lead or not at all, kid!
She’s quite delicate in her eating. Almost…picky…
Fortunately – we had overwatch on station.
Is that something??
Is it?!? Should I spook now? I’m chewing fast as I can so I’ll be ready. JIC!!
Nah – we’re okay. We’re fine. I gotchu.
