{thank you card kit}

17 Nov

As promised, I am back to show you the rest of the thank you cards I made.  I wanted to make life easy on myself, and make them all have the same basic design; this also helped with coordinating them.  The bases were made from two sheets of white cardstock and one sheet of Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  Then, with my new BigShot (thank you, Mom)–it’s SO cool!–I embossed the Rich Razzleberry cardstock with the chevron embossing folder.

From there, I used a retired stamp set, but all current colors.  The punch is the Scallop Square–which I won at a card class (these things are fun and you win great stuff!).  In addition to using the BigShot for the embossing folder, I also used it for the cutouts (Window Frames Collection Framelits from the Holiday Catalogue).  By the way, shout-0ut to my upline, Sareeta–thank you for lending me the embossing folder and framelits!

Finally, to get the stamped images different colors and to get the truck looking water-colored, I stamped the image in Basic Black ink.  Then, I took a blender pen and the Rich Razzleberry and Old Olive inks and colored in the lines–just like I learned in kindergarten.  Man, am I still good at that!  But even if you don’t like coloring in the lines, you can still watercolor with a blender pen, because there is NO WRONG WAY TO DO THIS!  Isn’t that awesome?!

My favorites have to be the first and third.  The others don’t make me as giddy. haha.

In case you’re wondering, here are the materials and the catalogue codes (excluding the stamp sets because they’re retired):

– 2 sheets of 8 1/2 X 11 Whisper White cardstock (100730)

– 1 sheet of 8 1/2 X 11 Rich Razzleberry cardstock (115316)

– Partial sheet of Old Olive cardstock (100702)
