Thank you!

Persimmon thank you full frontThank you! Here is a bright and cheery, beautiful card that started with a piece of watercolor paper that was letter pressed in an embossing folder. Add some die cuts, a foamiran flower or two and done! Supplies and directions are below!

Supplies: 5″ x 7″ White cardstock card base, 140# cold press watercolor paper, vellum, Distress Ink: Ripe Persimmon and Wild Honey, embossing folder, JustRite leaf die cuts, Cheery Lynn swirl die cuts, Magnolia leaf die cuts, Sue Wilson Thank you die and Stockholm die, sewing machine, upholstery thread, distress it all machine, white tulle, pearl brad, flower stamens, white foamiran, flower petal die cut

Directions: Spritz your  watercolor paper with water, ink up one side of the inside of your embossing folder, gently close it, run it through your machine (I used a Grand Calibur) Set it aside to dry. cut your flowers, ink the edges with the DI, shape, assemble, cut all other die cut pieces. Cut “thank you die” three times from heavy paper and glue them together to make it stronger and stand out more. Back it with vellum. Distress your watercolor letter press piece and sew a double line around the edge about a 1/4 inch in. Hot glue some lace along the top. Use foam dimensional tape to make your watercolor piece stand out from the card base and use foam dimensional squares for your “Thank you” focal piece. Attach your flowers and leaves and tulle arranging them however you want. I used hot glue. Double matt the inside. 🙂

Give to a special friend to say “Thank you!” If you don’t want to make your own, this one is available in my Etsy shop, Hyde Park Hill .

Happy Crafting!
