Thank You Cards

Thank You, You’re a Gem


Hi there, I hope you’re having a great weekend!

Today I’m sharing another shaker card, this time using the Triple-Step Thank You stamp and die set from Concord & 9th.  I’ve also used one of the beautiful card bases from the Dip-Dyed Cards and Envelopes set.  

I started by stamping, many many times, the small gem stamp in Altenew Lagoon ink.  Then I die cut each of them and set them aside.

Then I cut a dip-dyed card in half so I could use just the front part.  The neat thing about these cards is that the dip-dyed pattern continues around to the back side, so I’ll be able to create two card fronts using just one card.

I used the Thank You die to create the opening for the shaker area.  Then I stamped the “You’re a gem” sentiment in Versafine Onyx Black ink.

20180725_231349.jpgI placed an A-2 sized piece of Neenah Solar White #80 Classic Crest cardstock beneath the die cut dip-dyed panel and used the open space to line up the three stamps from the Triple-Step Thank you set so that the sentiment would be directly beneath the die cut opening.  Then I stamped “Thank you” in Altenew Rouge, Crimson, and Lagoon.

I adhered a panel of Hero Arts acetate to the underside of the dip-dyed panel. Then on the stamped panel, I surrounded the sentiment with thin strips of foam tape to create a well for the gems.  I also covered the rest of the panel in foam tape before I placed the gems in the well, removed the release paper from all of the foam tape, and adhered the dip-dyed panel on top.

To finish, I adhered the entire card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thank you so much for coming by!
