Teal Thankful Card

Teal Thankful Card

Hello friends! Today I wanted to share a card that was inspired by three challenges: The Modsquad ChallengeThe Rainbow Card Challenge #32 and The Paper Craft Crew Challenge #440.

This card is on its way to Maria at Kitchen Sink Stamps since she has done so much for the stamping community and I just bought the Bold Thankful die from Simon Says Stamp and CZ Designs on super sale and so thought to use it for this card.  I loved making this card as it was fun, relatively quick and allows me to use up some paper in my stash!  I will have to use this sketch for a few more cards...

To make this card, I took a teal-ish piece of cardstock on and cut it with the largest rectangular die from Gina K's Master Layout 2 die set. I then used the same paper for the thankful die. After die cutting the teal paper with the thankful die, I sprayed some Hero Arts White Iridescent Shimmer Spray and some gold spray in my stash and set it aside to dry. 

Meanwhile, I cut 5 strips of teal paper strips that I had from leftover paper in my stash and arranged them on the teal panel like in the sketch. I decided to add a little bit of washi tape behind and to the right of the two outer strips of paper (teal tape with white flowers). After I was happy with the placement, I glued all of the strips down. 

Next, I added two pieces of washi tape in lieu of the ribbon on the sketch--on the lower third of the card. The larger piece of washi tape is white with some black dots and then added a thinner piece of sparkly light blue paper over the top of the white washi tape.

Then I returned to the sentiment. Now that the teal paper was dry, I die cut two pieces of scrap cardstock with the same thankful die and glued all three layers together. Then I added a scrap of patterned paper (white with teal typewritten words) behind the die cut paper and added the little blue oval inside the a. When all of that dried, I added foam tape behind it and attached it to the card. I then added three light blue gems from Honey Bee Stamps on the bottom right part of the sentiment.  The whole blue panel (with the strips and sentiment) was glued to a white A2-sized card base.

The flower was created using Concord &9th's Fresh Cut Florals Dies-edition 3 on some alcohol-inked Yupo paper. After die cutting Yupo paper, I used my heat embossing tool to melt and curl the edges of the flower petals and then glued the layers together to make the flower. I then used a clear gem from Honey Bee Stamps in the center of the flower. I attached the flower with two layers of foam tape that ended up being attached to both the card base and the blue panel.

  3. This card is so awesome! I love the different paper you used for the background. And that flower! I never thought to use heat to curl yupo paper so I will have to try that. Thank you for joining us at the Rainbow Card Challenge! Hugs! Katy, DT :)

  4. What a great card! I love the way you used so many pieces of patterned papers, from the same color family on your card. The shimmer spray was a great way to add sparkle and shimmer. Thanks for joining us at Rainbow Card Challenge.
