After yesterday’s epic blog post I’ve something much shorter today. It’s a simple thank you card created using the retiring All Things Thanks Stamp Set.
This project actually started a couple of weeks ago while I was playing with my Stampin’ Spritzers. I had three altogether, each one containing 70% alcohol and 10 drops of reinker. The three colours I chose were Coastal Cabana, Balmy Blue and Night of Navy.
I then took a piece of Very Vanilla Card and simply spritzed it with each colour in turn and set it aside to dry.
To create today’s project I began by cutting and scoring a piece of Thick Whisper White Card using my retiring Stampin’ Trimmer. Then I folded the card along the scored line and sharpened the crease with a Bone Folder to create a card base.
With that done, I attached my spritzed background to the front using Multipurpose Liquid Glue (Tombow). This was followed by a wide strip of Whisper White Card. Then I cut a strip of the smaller gingham pattern from the retiring Gingham Gala 6″ x 6″ Designer Series Paper (DSP) in Balmy Blue, and attached that to the white strip.
On another layer of Whisper White Card I fixed a 3/4″ strip of the same gingham paper with liquid glue. Then I added the layers to the inside of the card.
One final piece of the gingham paper was attached to the flap of a Whisper White Medium Envelope with liquid glue. Then I used Paper Snips to cut the DSP to shape following the edge of the flap.
I love the sentiment ‘Thank you for welcoming our newest arrival’ from the retiring All Things Thanks Stamp Set. I stamped it onto Whisper White Card with Balmy Blue ink, then punched it out using the Everyday Label Punch.
To finish, I attached the punched sentiment to the card with liquid glue. Then I took two pieces of Whisper White 3/8″ Classic Weave Ribbon, laid them on top of each other and then tied a simple knot. With a couple of Mini Glue Dots to hold the ribbon in place on the sentiment, my project was finally done.
