A Pair of thank you’s

Hi there and welcome to Sunday.  Hopefully you are enjoying your weekend.  I am!

I am here to share some thank you’s today, a card and matching tag.  Let’s start with the card shall we.

I love the combination of the rainbow, the black and gold.  Such a nice combination in my mind.  

Here is how I made it: 

  • I started with some watercolor paper, I stamped the bouquet from the Hello Sweet Friend set in versamark ink and embossed it using Wow’s Gold Embossing Powder. 
  • Next, I spritzed the paper with water.  I then took out my rainbow of colored distress inks (Picked Raspberry, Carved Pumpkin, Squeezed Lemonade, Twisted Citron, Mermaid Lagoon, Wilted Violet) and swiped them across the wet paper like so. 
  • After I had all the colors on the page, I spritzed a bit more water to let the colors run a bit. Then I used my heat gun to dry them.
  • The image got a little bit muddy at the bottom, but I die cut it out using a rounded rectangle die. 
  • Then I cut out the words using the thank you from the Thank you Senti-mini Die Set.  I used the thicker thanks using black foam and then I cut the thin thanks in shiny gold. 
  • I mounted the panel on the black base.  I added the sentiment on top and added some bits of sparkly embellishments.  

For the tag, I followed the same method, however, instead of of placing the sentiment on top, I die cut the fat word in the black tag.  I placed the think gold thanks inside the black later which was mounted on top of the colored layer.  I added a few more embellishments and gold thread to finish it off. 

Pretty easy, but creates a nice card and tag set to give with a gift to a friend, teacher or someone else. I hope you like it.

Thanks for the visit! See you next time! ~Katie
