Thank You Card 1

Hi! Linzi here to share a fun fall themed thank you card.

With the cooler nights drawing in, I find myself more drawn towards rich, warm, autumnal colours so I decided to make this sweet, cosy thank you card, which would also be a great Thanksgiving card!

You will need:

You will also need:

  • Vellum paper
  • White card base
  • Wow! Metallic Gold Rich Pale embossing powder
  • Versamark Ink
  • Avery Elle “Many Thanks” stamp set
  • M&C Boutique Foliage dies
  • Gold paint
  • Maroon paint
  • Assorted gold & red flat sequins

  1. I started with a plain while card base (A6 size) which I already had in my stash. I then trimmed the Kraft card stock down to 14.1 x 9.8cm and placed to the side for later. Next I trimmed the White Hammered card stock down to 13.6 x 9.3cm and used the gold and maroon paint to add “splatter” to the white card stock, then set this aside to dry.
  2. Whilst the paint was drying, I used the M&C Boutique Foliage dies and cut various pieces of foliage from the Ruby Red card stock, Maroon card stock and Dark Green card stock. Again, I set these aside and got on with the sentiment part of the card!
  3. I trimmed a flag tag shaped strip of vellum and used a stamp from Avery Elle’s “Many Thanks” stamp set with Versamark Ink and Wow! Metallic Gold Rich Pale embossing powder and heat embossed the sentiment onto the vellum.
  4. Now the paint splattered panel is dry, it’s time to assemble the card! Firstly I adhered the while panel to the Kraft card panel and then applied both to the card base. I glued the vellum down (top tip: I applied glue only to behind the embossed parts of the vellum, thus hiding the adhesive!) and placed the die cut pieces of card above and behind the vellum; once I was happy with the arrangement of these, I glued them down.
  5. The final step was adding several sorted sized and coloured sequins to the card for some added bling!
