I seem to be into thank you cards these days and here is another one. It features the quite awesome One Big Meaning stamp set.
Then I combined the stamp set with the quite awesome and very colorful Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Series Paper. It’s a ‘specialty paper’ because it has four sheets that feature copper foil. And I added a bit of Copper Embossing Powder to the card as well.
Flirty Flamingo: 4-1/4″ x 11″, score at 5-1/2″ and 2-3/4″, folded in half at 5-1/2″ and then folded back at 2-3/4″; second piece: 1″ x 11″, scored also at 5-1/2″ and 2-3/4″ and folded the same as full card.
Designer Series Paper: Pattern 1: 4″ x 5-1/4″. Pattern 2: 2-1/2″ x 4″. Pattern 3: 2-5/8″ x 7/8″
Crumb Cake: 3-1/2″ square scrap
Whisper White: 3-1/2″ square scrap
Mint Macaron: 2″ square scrap
TIP: above: Snip about 1-1/4″ to 1-1/2″ off of the long end of the 1″ wide strip. Fold as shown in photo and place Fast Fuse on the 2-3/4″ end as well as about 1-1/2″ of the 5-1/2″ end. DO NOT ATTACH YET! Fold main card, with Designer Series Paper pieces already adhered, in the z-fold shape and hold it flat. Then lay the 1″ wide strip positioning the 2-3/4″ end as shown in photo above. Lay the folds in their ‘z’ form and adhere the long end as shown above. When all layers are closed, they will lie flat.
Die cut the Whisper White and Crumb Cake pieces using the second-to-largest scalloped and corresponding second-to-largest circle pieces from the Layering Circle Framelits Dies. Attach the two layers to each other and then stamp greeting with Night of Navy classic ink.
The die cut pieces (photo above) will cover up the end of the 1″ strip. Punch a Mint Macaron pansy using the Pansy Punch. Swipe over the punched pieced with the Embossing Buddy. Stamp the center of the flower with the ‘flower center image’ from the Love & Affection photopolymer stamp set using VersaMark ink, sprinkle with Copper Embossing Powder and heat set with the Heat Tool.
As with all cards, change out the designer paper, the card stock and the greeting and you’ll have a totally new card. Try it. It’s fun! Check out this card I made in June for my son’s birthday.
