Thank You For Everything, My Friend

Thank You Card is one of the most cards we always need. Usually, I made A2 (4.25″ x 5.5″) cards or square cards, but this time I went with 8.5″ x 3.5″ that fits in no.10 envelope. I used 2 embossing technique on this card: heat and dry.

First, I embossed 8.5″ x 3″ White Daisy cardstock using Chevron Embossing Folder from CTMH and WRMK Evolution Advanced. Then I used my Xyron Create Sticker Max to add adhesive at the back of the embossed cardstock. Then on the other piece of White Daisy 8.5″ x 1.5″, I stamped the flower border from CAS-ual Fridays Stamps, Wallflower Set, using Cotton Candy Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad. Then using Xyron 1.5″ sticker maker I added adhesive on the flower stripe and added it on the card.

Next is the tag, I cut out of watercolor paper to make the tag, then added some colors using CTMH Watercolor Pencils, basic colors and then I wet it with brush and water to create the gradient watercolor effect. Using my Craft Heater I heated it so it dried well before I stamped the sentiment. I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set, Wallflower Set with VersaMark Ink Pad and added some AC Zing! Black Embossing Powder, opaque finish. I heated it with my Craft Heater and LOVE the bold color on the watercolor tag! Then I stamped one of big individual flower from Wallflower Set with Honey Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad, and cut it with scissors. I added on the tag with Liquid Glass and one of the Sparkles Clear Assortment.

I have this yellow and white baker’s twine I got from Pick Your Plum a while ago in my stash and this color just perfect match with the tag. I wrapped it around the card and then before I tied up the bow, I added the tag. I secured it with 3D foam tapes. Then I added the button and tied up the bow. To secure the bow, I used some very tiny drops of Liquid Glass glue under the twine.

I am inspired by CAS-ual Fridays Challenge, CFC134: Tic Tac Toe. I pick the diagonal, chevron, white, twine. So sad to know that this will be their last challenge. But the good news is that Michelle said that the challenge will be back freshly in 2015.


And I also link up my card at:
