Thank You Card

I hope that you are having a wonderful weekend and you're getting some time in your craft room. Today I'm sharing a Thank You Card featuring a variety of the newly released dies from Joset Designs as well as some dies from Els van de Burgt Studio. I have a tutorial below for you so that you can recreate my wonderful Thank You card.


Using the Diamond Background die, die cut the background out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool, blend Vintage Photo, Gathered Twigs and Wild Honey Distress Ink over the entire diamond background. Once the background has been blended, distress the edges of the background using an edge distressor. To finish off the edges on the background, use a blending tool and ink the edges using Vintage Photo Distress Ink.


From the arrow dies, die cut two of the arrows with stars using White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool, blend Vintage Photo and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink over the entire surface of both arrows. Once the arrows have been coloured, using a stylus, run the stylus down the middle of both feathers on the arrows. Fold the sides of the feathers up to give them a bit of dimension.


Out of the same arrow dies, die cut the arrow with the chevrons out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool, blend Vintage Photo and Gathered Twigs Distress Ink over the entire surface of both arrows.


Die cut all three feathers from the feather die out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool, blend Vintage Photo Distress Ink over the entire surface of the small feather. Using a blending tool, blend Vintage Photo and Wild Honey Distress Ink over the entire surface of the medium feather. Using a blending tool, blend Gathered Twigs Distress Ink over the entire surface of the large feathers. With a blending tool and Vintage Photo Distress Ink, ink the edges of the feathers. Once the feathers have been coloured, using a stylus, run the stylus down the middle of all three feathers. Fold the sides of the feathers up to give them a bit of dimension.


From the Pair of Leaves 2 die, die cut the skinny leaf out of White Soft Finish Cardstock.


Using the Stitched Fishtail Banners Die, cut the 3/4" banner out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Once the banner has been cut, flip the banner die to the non pennant side and cut out the other side to create the banner pennant on that side. To finish the banner, apply Potting Soil Archival Ink to the 'Thank You" sentiment stamp. Stamp the sentiment in the middle of the banner.


From the Stitched Oval dies, die cut both the 3" and 2 1/2" stitched ovals out of White Soft Finish Cardstock. Using a blending tool, blend Vintage Photo and Wild Honey Distress Ink over the entire surface of the 3" stitched oval. Using a blending tool, blend Antique Linen Distress Ink over the entire surface of the 2 1/2" stitched oval. To finish off the edges of the stitched ovals, use a blending tool and ink the edges using Vintage Photo Distress Ink.


Adhere the 2 1/2" stitched oval to the 3" stitched oval. Foam square the 3" stitched oval to the middle of the diamond background.


Adhere the two arrows to the 2 1/2" stitched oval. Make sure that the arrows makes an "x". 


Adhere the white leaf in between the two arrows.


Adhere the three feathers overtop of the leaf and arrows. Make sure to leave some of the white leaf and the top of the arrows showing.


Foam square the "thank you" banner to the bottom portion of the feathers. Once the banner has been adhered, adhere the chevron arrow to the bottom of the banner. After the arrow has been adhered, add Transparent Glitter/Gold glitter dots to the circles on the arrow.


Cut a cardbase that measures 4 1/4" x 11", score at 5 1/2". With your card front complete, adhere the card front to the cardbase. 


Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I've inspired you to re-create my Thank You card at home.
