Thank You Hand Made Card with Stenciling

Share This!

Thank You Card Stepped up 2 I made some simple notecards that are great to send to a friend, or package a bunch of them together to give as a gift.  I grabbed our  pre-cut and scored Notecards  and the Still Smiling Stamp Set, stamped my greeting and a few flowers and I was done!

A set of these would be a great hostess gift, or gift for teachers, friends and family (ehem!  The holidays are coming y’all!!!)

But I didn’t stop there…you know me…I gotta get out my stencils, embossing paste, dies…well, watch and see for yourself how I stepped up this One Layer Card.

First I sponged Party Dress on my card layer, then I laid down the Checkerboard stencil and added Whipped Spackle.

Before the Whipped Spackle was dry, I covered it with Wanderlust Embossing Glitter (this was an item in our Naturally Inspired Collection and will be released in our store soon!).

The sentiment and flowers were stamped on the large label from Merry Labels Dies and added to the card front with 3M Mounting Tape (I get this on Amazon).

    Love these cards, simple but elegant. I do have some stencils but I’m a newbie starting out so have no idea about embossing paste, spackle etc, I only have a very basic craft stash. Will have to look into it as a new learning curve.

    Great CAS simple card. I love both versions. It’s hard to hard to choose which I like best. I might step up the CAS version by adding B@W twine wrapped around the top and tied in a bow, the wide vertical stripes stamped 1/2 to 3/4 in across the bottom with a thin glitter gradient strip going from pink to blue to green, and then just a few PPP sparking clear sequins. I might have to try it out and see how it turns out.
