Hi everyone, Eloise here and today I have three thank You cards to share with you all using the same stamp set for all, along with the same sentiment die but adding a few other dies in to change up the design each time. Thank you cards are so important after the holidays and honestly, all year round so I love to have a lot of hand as I’m always in need of them.
For my sentiment, I used the Thank You Script die and positioned it into the centre of my die cut panel. I then used a foam mat, placed it underneath the cardstock, and ran it through my Big Shot Machine like I would an embossing folder. This creates an impression of the die cut, rather than cutting through. Now that my panel has been embossed with the die cut sentiment, I used the Kuretake Gansai Starry Colours Watercolour Set and painted in the Thank You sentiment with a gold watercolour. I dried that with a heat tool and assembled my card. I adhered my flowers on with foam tape and adhered my leaves with flat adhesive. I then popped up the entire panel onto fun foam and then onto a card base that I covered with blue striped patterned paper and that finished up my first card.
For my second card, I started out with the rest of the colouring for my next two cards. I stamped down a ton of images onto some more watercolour cardstock using black ink this time and clear heat embossing over the top and used the same Zig Clean Colour Markers for my images. For my second card I used No. 33 Persian Green, No. 31 Cobalt Blue, No. 42 Turquoise Green and No. 41 Light Green. Once all my images were coloured, I die cut them out with the coordinating dies and moved on to my shaker. I’m using the Window Frames Dies, and I cut out the largest one out of some white cardstock. I set the negative piece aside and coloured the positive piece using Peacock Feathers and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, fading it into white.
Next, I added a piece of acetate onto the back of my negative piece using some scor tape and then added foam tape all around the edges to create a seemless well for my sequins to sit in. Next, I grabbed a white card base, adhered down my positive window frame piece, the added some Mermaid Mix Sequins onto the arched piece. I then removed the foam tape backers and adhered my panel over top. I then adhered my flowers at the bottom of my arched piece with foam tape and then adhered my leaves with flat adhesive. For my sentiment, I used the same thank you die, I adhered some stick it onto the back of some white cardstock, then cut it out and adhered it on top of my sequin shaker window. That finished up my second card, now let’s move onto the last card.
For my third card, I again started off with my coloured images. For this colour combo, I used No. 50 Yellow, No. 25 Pink, No. 202 Peach Pink and No. 41 Light Green. I set off my flowers and leaves to the side and moved onto die cutting I used the Scallop Ovals Dies and cut the largest one out of white cardstock. I set it off to the side, then used Tumbled Glass and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink to ink blend lightly into the centre of another piece of watercolour cardstock. I then sprinkled on some water, picked it up with a paper towel and dried it off with a heat tool. Next, I die cut the Thank You die cut from some more white cardstock and adhered it to the centre of my panel.
Next, I added foam tape onto the back of my scalloped oval and adhered that around my sentiment, then I adhered my flowers surrounding my oval/sentiment with foam tape and adhered my entire panel onto a piece of blue water-coloured paper.
To completely finish off my cards, I adhered some Metallic Gold Confetti Mix onto my first card with the gold accents and then some 4mm Tutti Fruitti Mix and 6mm Mix around my card also using some Multi Medium Matte adhesive.
Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope you enjoyed my thank you cards for today.
