This is another of the thank you cards I’ve created to send to my friend in Idaho. She requested fifty cards so I still have a few to go. It’s been a fun, creative challenge. And I wanted to show a totally different use of a previously used stamp set (Lovely Lattice from Sale-A-Bration) so created this Pool Party Lovely Lattice thank you card.
Supplies I used for this card:
Steps followed to create this bright card:
- Basic Card: Balmy Blue card stock: 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored at 4-1/4″ and folded on the score line, creating the card front
- Layer: 5″ x 3-3/4″, run through the Big Shot using the Subtle Textured Embossing Folder. Attach to card front with Snail Adhesive.
- Stamped Feature:
- Using the Stitched Shapes Framelits/second to largest oval, cut out the oval from Whisper White card stock. Then stamp the flower image (Memento Black ink) from the Lovely Lattice stamp set at the top and bottom of the oval, flipping the direction of the flower. Color in with Stampin’ Blends. I colored the center first (Daffodil Delight), then a ‘ring/circle’ of Dark Balmy Blue Blends and finally filled in the petals with the Light Balmy Blue Blends. Color leaves using the Light Old Olive Blends marker.
- Ribbon: (The Pool Party ribbon I used is retired but works just fine!) Run two lines of Snail Adhesive on the back of the stamped oval. Zig Zag the ribbon on the back side. Attach to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Smaller Oval Layer: Smoky Slate card stock, smallest oval shape.
- Stamp the word first, then die cut it using the Big Shot and Oval Framelit
- Use the Basic Black Stampin’ Marker (sold separately rather than in a complete set of markers!) to isolate only the words thank you from the Animal Outing stamp set. Stamp immediately onto Smoky Slate card stock scrap.
- Attach to the middle of the Whisper White Oval using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I love the sweet simplicity of this Pool Party Lovely Lattice thank you card. Try using this layout as a template, changing out the card stock color, the ribbon and the stamp set. I think it could be very versatile.
