Wintry Thank You

Welcome 2019 and Happy New Year to everyone!

Today I was hoping to bring two new, wintery, thank you cards but one of them had a speck on its sentiment strip that I didn’t notice until I saw the photos. So I’ll share that one tomorrow… if I have a chance to rephotograph it.

Now that Christmas and the holidays are over, many of us have thank you cards that need to be written. Here is one that I made today for a dear friend of mine.

I just love this Concord & 9th Snowflake Turnabout Stamp.

This card features an inlaid YOU sentiment that has been built up with 5 layers of white card stock behind the snowflake top layer. Here are the supplies I used: Concord & 9th All About You dies, Concord & 9th Snowflake Turnabout Stamp, Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Sea Breeze, Aqualicious, Dew Drops, Turquoise; My Favorite Things Snowflake dies, Nuvo Shimmer Powder: Atlantis Burst, Bue Blitz, Cherry Bomb; Watercolor card stock, Simon Says StampTiny Words Stamp, Pretty Pink Posh sequins, Neenah Classic Crest Solar White #80, #110 card stock, and craft foam.

To make this card I used Altenew inks to stamp the Snowflake Turnabout stamp, changing colors each time I turned the stamp. I cut my panel down to 4″ x 5 1/4″. I cut the colored snowflakes, the thanks, and the background of YOU from pre-created card stock that I had in my stash. This pre-created card stock was made using watercolor card stock and Nuvo shimmer powders in Atlantis Burst, Blue Blitz and Cherry Bomb. (I sprayed the watercolor paper with water and then sprinkled the paper with a little of each color, spritzing with water and tilting the card stock until I liked how the background looked.) After die cutting the words thank and you from their respective card stocks, I cut 5 more of each of them in #80 white card stock, glueing all of them one on top of the other. I put craft foam on the back of the card front except where the word YOU had been die cut out. I glued craft foam around the cut-out YOU on the back of the card front. After adhering the card front to the card base, I inlaid the word YOU  and glued the word thanks and the white heat embossed sentiment in place.

Here is a close up:

The card was embellished with Pretty Pink Posh sequins and snowflakes cut from white card stock and card stock detailed with Nuvo Shimmer Powders. I also used a Wink of Stella Shimmer Pen over the snowflakes and thank sentiment (after picture was taken).

Welcome and Hi there! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog. To give you a little background about myself, I am a Christian, have been married for 33 years to my wonderful husband and I have two beautiful, adult, married daughters who are dear to me. I love to craft and find it relaxing, challenging, and a way to express a deep desire to create and make things with my hands. In the past my greatest joys in creating came from cross-stitching and sewing (I was a design major in college). But now I find it in paper-crafting, more specifically in card making. My other passions are bike riding, weight training, chocolate, and ice cream.
