Special Thanks

Good Morning!
I'm back today with a thank-you card I made using the side fold card design that I really like.
It makes for a change and creates a very sturdy card.  

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I began by going through my stash.  As I have mentioned in some of my previous posts, I really need to use some of the backgrounds that I have created that are just sitting in a bin.  I found this one I had done with Alcohol inks and Rubbing Alcohol and I was ready to make something with it.
  • Next, I put together my card base to create the side fold card.  To do that please see my instructions HERE.
  • I cut the Alcohol inked piece into a square, glued that onto a piece of navy cardstock, then onto the main card front.  I repeated that process with the small side piece.
  • I die cut the Geometric Cutout 1 from Impression Obsession with some white cardstock.  It cuts the pattern into the paper, then I used a circle die to cut it round and then placed it into my Misti.
  • I stamped one of the shapes from the Hero Arts set called Tie Dye right over the center of the die cut using some coordinating Distress Oxide inks.  
  • I stamped the 'Thanks' from the same set onto some white cardstock and pop dotted that over the center of the circle.
  • To finish off my card, I pop dotted the finished die cut over the inked background.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

This die cut mandala within the circle and with the stamped flowery centre looks wonderful Karen and love the background using a piece inked with those beautiful colours of alcohol ink and love the side fold card shape too. x

Lovely use of the alcohol inks - what a great background to have in your stash! I like the unusual format of the card - I rarely think to do anything other than a regular fold!

Absolutely amazing Karen x. The alcohol inked background (found in your bin stash) looks stunning and the white pretty die cut pops against it x.
