Gratitude Card

October 8, 2021

Hey Crafters! Katelyn here, sharing with you my Gratitude Card.

To create my Gratitude Card, I’ve used a variety of dies from Joset Designs and stamps from the Beautiful Blooms Collection. You’ll want to read below as I share with you how to recreate my card at home.

Step One. Choose two pieces of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence the Book 2. Die cut a 4″ Stitched Rounded Rectangle out of one of the patterned papers. Die cut a 3 1/2″ Stitched Rounded Rectangle out of the other patterned paper. Distress the edges of both rectangles. Ink the edges of both rectangles using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Two. Choose one piece of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence the Book 2. Die cut a 3 3/4″ Fitted Rounded Rectangle out of one of the patterned paper. Distress the edge of the rectangle. Ink the edges of the rectangle using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Three. Choose another piece of patterned paper out of the Reminiscence the Book 2. Die cut a 3/4″ Diagonal Stitched Fishtail out of the patterned paper. Cut the fishtail down to 3″. Apply Ground Espresso Distress Ink to the Gratitude word from the Beautiful Blooms – Gratitude stamp set. Stamp onto the fishtail. Distress the edges of the fishtail. Ink the edges of the fishtail using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Four. From the Gratitude Stamp Set, you’ll need the rose bunch and the single rose. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the rose bunch and stamp onto a piece of watercolour cardstock. Apply Jet Black Archival Ink to the single rose and stamp onto the same piece of cardstock. Reapply ink to the single rose and stamp again on the same piece of watercolour cardstock. Colour the rose bunch and the two single roses in using a waterbrush and the Watercolour Palette. Once the flowers have dried, fussy cut the flowers out. Ink the edges of the flowers using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and a blending tool with foam.

Step Five. Adhere the 3 3/4″ rectangle to the 4″ rectangle. Foam square the 3 1/2″ rectangle to the 3 3/4″ rectangle.

Step Six. Adhere the fishtail 1 7/8″ from the bottom and 1 1/4″ from the left of the 3 1/2″ rectangle. Adhere the single roses around the fishtail as desired.

Step Seven. Foam square the rose bunch so that it sits slightly on the adhered single roses.

Step Eight. To finish the card, cut a cardbase out of White Soft Finish Cardstock that measures 4″ x 10 1/2″, score at 5 1/4″. Adhere the cardfront to the cardbase.

Thanks for joining me today! I hope that I’ve inspired you to create your own version of my Gratitude Card at home.
