You will be able to use this handmade Fall Thank You card to say thanks to anyone for anything!
Today we’ve got a very sweet card from Jamie that combines so many of the bold, rich colors of Fall with some easy to do techniques that add a ton of interest and won’t take a ton of time! Let’s dive in!
First, Jamie used our Leaf Die Set to cut some background and detail segments of assorted leaf shapes.
She then used her favorite ink applicators to apply shades of our Color Fuse Ink Sets #2, 3 and 11, adding a little extra ink to the solid leaf die cuts to ensure some colorful contrast. She adhered the coordinating detail die cuts to the solids with some liquid glue and set them aside to dry.
For that fabulous background, Jamie used a fantastic PRO TIP trick! She had created a background for another project using our new Plaid Texture Stencil and some oxide ink. The stencil had a lot of ink on it when she was finished making the background show in the photo here:
See all that ink on the stencil? Jamie didn’t want to waste it so she spritzed the stencil with water, placed a piece of watercolor paper over it and rubbed all over. This transferred the ink in a way that gave Jamie a gorgeous, random, distressed look.
She the cut that panel with a die from our Nested Rectangle Stitch Die Set and layered it over a dark rust panel which she then added to a card base made from pale orange textured card stock with foam squares.
Now she added the leaves to her card adhering the brown and green first with adhesive tape and then adding the green in the center with more dimensional adhesive.
Then she used our You Script With Shadow die with scraps of green and orange card stock, adhered together with liquid glue and then added that, too, to the card. Last she stamped “Thank You” from our Best Wishes Set with black ink on another scrap of orange, trimmed it into shape and added it with another foam square. For a final touch, Jamie added some gold glitter enamel dots and this beauty was ready to go!”
Here’s what Jamie used today to make this darling card:
