Thanks so much

Hello friends - Been a busy week for me and I am so behind on posting some projects that I have completed. But it has been ‘good’ busy with some fun illustrating work. Can’t share that yet. ;)

However I can share this clean and simple card that I made last weekend.

I’ve been wanting to create a stacked die cut sentiment for a while and I finally but my hands on a die that would be perfect for it: Scripty Thanks from Lawn Fawn. I die cut the top layer from a piece of designer paper (Amy Tan Plus One – American Crafts) and then die cut five more layers from thick white cardstock. I adhered all of the layers together using Glossy Accents and for a final touch I adding a coating of it to the top.

Behind the thanks are a couple of circles cut from a large manila tag that I embossed and painted. How? First I used an image from Mixed Media (Stampers Anonymous) and heat embossed the entire tag with white embossing powder. I then swiped a Wild Honey Distress Paint across the surface and let dry for a bit. I used a paper towel to wipe off the excess paint and expose the embossing a bit more. I repeated this paint technique with Spiced Marmalade Distress Paint.

Once dry, I cut out a couple of circles using the Stitched Circles Dienamics from MFT.

Covered the card base with coordinating designer paper and added a mat from white cardstock. Finished by adhering the pieces together using foam tape and liquid glue and embellished with enamel dots and label letters.

What do you think? Fun, right? I used another one of these circles on another project that I will have to share with you another day.
