Hi! Today I am going to share with you a Thanks card.
As you know I like simple cards using only 1 or 2 colours and not many layers, but I wanted to be little bit more brave this time.
I only thought that Valentine’s day, Christmas day, Birthdays and mother&father’s day exist in the card world, but then when I started being a ‘Stampin’ Up!’ demonstrator.
Now I make more ‘Thank You’ cards than any other type of card.
To make the main base part of the card,
Card base_Whisper White Cardstock – W: 11-5/8″(29.5cm) H: 4-1/8″(10.5cm) and fold in half which is W: 5-13/16″(14.8cm) H: 4-1/8″(10.5cm).
For the layer_Whisper White Cardstock – W: 1/4″(2mm) smaller then Card base × 2
Both flowers are made in the same way for the most part, but one is made on seperate card stock, fussy-cut out and raised up using dimensionals. The other is stamped directly onto the main part of the card. I made the seperate image first so I could move it around the card freely to see where I exactly wanted to position it.
The image is made up of three stamps which I had to play around with to get the exact effect that I wanted. I found that if you fully ink your stamps for all three parts, the flower lacks depth and texture. If you want to get the same effect that I got on this card then this is how I did it. For the stem and leaf of the card, simply use Old Olive Classic Stampin’ Pad and the 2-step stem image from the Lotus Blossom(Sale-A-Bration) stamp set and leaf from Best Day Ever(Sale-A-Bration) stamp set.
On Whisper White Cardstock using stamp 1, fully ink the stamp with your Calypso Coral Classic Stampin’ Pad and stamp it onto the card stock. With stamp 2, fully ink the stamp with the same colour and then stamp gently onto scratch paper to remove some of the ink. With the remainder of the ink on the stamp, stamp over the area where you used stamp 1. Repeat the same for stamp 3 as you did with stamp 2, but using the Crisp Cantaloupe Classic Stampin’ Pad and you’ll see that you get a nice depth to the flower. Of course, there are no rules, and this is just how I did it, so have a play around and then you can decide which you like the best.
and using Calypso Coral Ribbon to through small size button holes from Best Year Ever Accessory Pack(Sale-A-Bration) and stick to end to end back of layer card. put glue dot behind to the button.
and put few Dimensionals behind the layer card and put on to the base card 🙂
