Christmas may be over, but that doesn’t mean the need for a few more holiday thank you cards is done. Today I have whipped up four holiday thank notes for family members who thought of us this year.
Step One: Using Elizabeth Craft Designs Watercolor Palette, lay down a layer of color onto some watercolor paper. Each color spot has two or three different colors to create the spot.
Step Two: Die cut the color spots using both A Way With Words Flourished Christmas Minis and Flourished Christmas Minis 2.
Step Three: Using 90lb Soft Finished Cardstock, die cut A Way With Words Family four times.
Step Four: Trim a piece of 90lb Soft Finish Cardstock to 4.25×5.5 inches to create four backgrounds of the cards. Blend Distress Oxides around the edges using the darkest on the outside and going lighter to the the middle. I used Black Soot, Chipped Sapphire and Speckled Egg.
Step Five: Repeat four each of the four backgrounds.
Step Six: Spray and splatter the cardstock with a silver shimmer spray.
Step Seven: Die cut the four background pieces with the Stitched Rounded Rectangle die set.
Step Eight: Using 10mm Clear Double Sided Adhesive, adhere the background to an A2 card frame.
Step Nine: Using a stamping platform, add the sentiments to the four card frames. I used both the Love & Hearts Collection stamp set and the Build Your Own Sentiments 1 stamp set.
Step Ten: Using Kids Choice Glue, adhere both the Family die cut and Minis to the four card frames.
Step Eleven: Add little heart flourishes from the Love & Hearts Collection stamp set to the four cards.
Step Twelve: Add Metallic Silver Craft drops to the four cards.
I love how each of these cards came out, looking a lot like winter with just a touch of the lingering holidays.
