Vertical Thank You

February 13, 2019

I’ve gone “back to basics” and one of my favorite sets from Stamping’ Up!’s annual catalog so I could make this Vertical Thank You card.  To get the three separate colors on the single topiary stamp I used the Old Olive, Soft Suede and Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Write Markers.

The major TIP for this #simplestamping card is the cutting of the card base.  Rather than 8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, cut the base to 7-3/4″ x 5-1/2″ and still score it at 4-1/4″.  When you crease the fold, one side will be 3/4″ narrower than the other side.  That ‘short/narrow’ side is the card front.  Stamp your vertical greeting on the edge that is “hanging out”.

Using Stampin’ Markers, I colored the topiaries using Old Olive, the wood trunks using Soft Suede and the pot using Rich Razzleberry.

To add a pop of dimension, I placed one greenish Basic Adhesive Backed Sequin on each topiary segment.

And finally, I used Crumb Cake Classic Ink for stamping the entire monochromatic image on the envelope.

If you don’t need a Vertical Thank You card, consider using one of the other greetings from the stamp set:  Just Because….For You….I Love You….Happy Birthday….Congrats.  It really is a versatile set!  Just click on the stamp set image in the supplies list above to be taken right my my online Stampin’ Up! store.
