Purple Rose Thank You Card

I’m way behind on sending thank you cards.  My excuse is that I refuse to buy them in a store, and even if I do, I get the “where’s my hand made card?” response. I took some Saturday time to make cards, which are still sitting here because now I need stamps. Anyway, using the Grand Calibur™ and new Spellbinders™ die templates I whipped out a bunch bouquet of cards assembly line style.

I was determined not to dip into my 12×12″ papers, but to use up scraps.  I have a ton of purple Worldwin cardstock, Basic Grey (I made an 8×8″ album for a friend and have so many scraps) and I got a great deal on these ‘Thank You’ rub-ons when a store went out of business.  OK, so I had to cut the card backs, but that doesn’t count, right?

Real quick – this is how to make a dozen cards with scraps and the Grand Calibur.  The die templates I used are new Spellbinders  S5-024 Labels Twenty-One; S4-324 Ribbon  Banners and S5-050 Rose Creations. Rub-ons are older Reminisce, and the card backs are Worldwin cover stock, and Glimmer Mist in Haunted Shadow and Apple.

Since I had room, I cut 4 of the Banner Basics in each pass, I just love them and they’ll be good to have on hand for another project.

Next step, assemble the roses.  I mixed and matched the purples and used sparkly brads from Creative Impressions. The leaves, labels and banners were edged with an ink pad. The leaves were also spritzed with Glimmer Mist.

The flat flowers were not working for me.  I folded the petals up and in to give the flowers some dimension.  Then I sprayed some purple Glimmer Mist onto my mat and tapped and dragged the edges of the flower.  This is quick and there is no reason to fuss about perfection in this step.

See, it makes a huge difference and it doesn’t matter if they are all slightly different.

I pushed the brad through the labe to attach the rose, then used SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™  3D Foam Squares on the leaves and MyStik™ Mounting Squares to adhere the labels to the cards, and the Ribbon Banners on top of the labels.

Each rose and label is different, but that’s ok, nobody will know but you and me!

And nobody will know that I used up some stash very nice paper!

They’ll just be shocked to actually get something from me!!

Life’s a Beach

Or not so much, if you look at the thermometer, it’s rather chilly this weekend.  I actually have a card I put together as a thank you. 

The background took all of 30 seconds and a few Copic Markers.  The bottom is E37, to look like sand along a beach.  Then I airbrushed layers of blues, starting with the lightest, B21 and layered horizontally increasing the colors, B23, B26, B29. 

The palm tree is a retired Spellbinders™ die template.  I cut the trunk from thin balsa wood, trimmed it with scissors so I just had the trunk, then used E37 to color through like a stencil.  The leaves and grass are Core’dinations paper, cut/embossed and sanded.  I used SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES BY 3L™ 3D Foam Squares (I cut the smaller sizes in half while still on the backing) to fit on the back side of the trunk.

For the Labels, I stamped the Thank You, then lined up a Classic Oval to cut/emboss,  then airbrushed B24 while the paper was still in the die template, so I had the while border.  Then I did the same with the Labels Six, but airbrushed with B21 and used the 3D Foam Squares to elevate the Thank You die cut.

I added some sprigs of grass with G07.  I should have made several of these, it was super quick and fun!

Happy Mothers Day!
