Stationery Set for Ruth and Andy
Ruth and Andy had the booth next to mine at the Farmer’s Market. They are delightful and generous people! They always had a kind word for their customers and all of us vendors. I looked forward each week seeing them. And they supplied us with delicious fresh produce all summer long!
At the end of the summer, as a little “thank you”, I made them this cute little stationery set. I patterned it after their shirts. Each week they wore matching red T-shirts embroidered with their farm name, a hand shovel and the words, “I dig in the dirt”.
The cards and stationery cover are made with Real Red cardstock #102482. The inside of the stationery folder is covered with a piece of Smokey Slate Designer Papers from the Neutrals Designer Paper Stacks #130132. Along the bottom I used Soft Suede cardstock #115318. I tore the pieces of Soft Suede and inked the edges with Soft Suede ink #126978 to make it look like dirt.
The inside of the folder is also decorated with another retired Stampin’ Up! stamp set called “Best of Cluck”. Ruth and Andy also raise chickens and have fresh yummy eggs each week. So I wanted to include them also.
The individual cards were made with the NEW Stampin’ Up!(c) Circle Card Thinlits Dies #133480. These cards are so simple and fun to make!
The actual card front only covers about 1/2 of the card with the circle portion extending beyond that. It has a special fold that allows the circle to flip over when opened. On the back there is space for another stamped image or saying on the back. (I have made numerous cards with this new Die and they are so cute! You will want this Die added to your collection!) The Thinlit Circle Card die can be purchased at my on-line store!
I used Stampin’ Up!(c) envelopes….of course! I love the quality of the envelopes. I used Stampin’ Up!(c) Whisper White Envelopes #107301 for these cards. I decorated the envelope with the shovel image.
