Blessings Of Home - Thank You Card - Video Tutorial

Today's Video shows you how I created these cards.

I used the Blessings of Home stamp set for the image and the sentiment but I cut away part of the sentiment.

This was the first card I created. I didn't think about the positioning of the sentiment and placed the image in the centre of the panel. This is why I set the image higher for the other cards :o)

The colours used for the background are Flirty Flamingo, Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron.

The sentiment mat was cut using one of the (retired) Playful Piggy dies.

The paper is a retired design from one of our Subtles Designer Series Paper packs.

The background paper used for this second card came from the (retired) Wonderful World Designer Series Paper pack - this was one of the free products available during a recent Sale-a-Bration promotion.

The colours used are Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Granny Apple Green.

The Black Rhinestones used throughout are also retired. You can get a similar look by using our Matt Dots, Black Matt Dots or colouring our Basic Pearls or Rhinestones using the Dark Black Blends marker.

Here is the card I created in the Video. The paper comes from the Tea Boutique 6" Designer Series Paper pack.

The images and sentiments were all stamped with the Stamparatus using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then overstepped using Versamark ink before embossing with Clear powder.

The colours used for the background were Tahitian Tide, Parakeet Party and Sweet Sorbet.

Here is the Video ...


Note: If you use A4 as your standard sheet of card – follow the metric measurements (cms).
