I used two truly wonderful products in this card, both of which appear in the new upcoming Annual Catalog. That makes me really excited, knowing that they will be considered "current" for at least another year.
The two items I am referring to are the beautiful tree stamp -- isn't it amazing?? I guess that's why the name of the set is Amazing Silhouettes. And that "thanks"!! The best ever diecut thanks!
Snce I popped up the diecut sentiment with a couple Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, the card has a bit of dimension, but not so much as to require extra postage when mailing it. I love that!
Just a closeup of the beautiful elements:

Mossy Meadow cardstock
A piece of Designer Series Paper that features a subtle design on a dark background -- Mossy Meadow
Amazing Silhouettes stamp set (page 72, new Annual Catalog)
Die Cutting/Embossing Machine
Amazing Thanks Dies (page 169, new Annual Catalog)
Mossy Meadow ribbon
Mini Stampin' Dimensionals
Mini Glue Dots
Fold a 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" piece of white cardstock in half, creasing it well with a bone folder.
On a piece of white cardstock that measures 3" x 5", stamp in Mossy Meadow ink the tall tree image from the Amazing Silhouettes stamp set.
Adhere this to a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of your chosen Designer Series Paper.
From Mossy Meadow cardstock, die cut the shadow portion of the "thanks" word, and from white, die cut the main portion of the word. Using liquid glue sparingly, adhere these two word pieces together.
Put a glue dot or two onto the center of a piece of coorinating 1/2" ribbon that measures about 6" long and add it to the lower portion of the tree image, securing the ends on the backside of the DSP. Adding the glue dots keeps the ribbon secure underneath the sentiment, discouraging it from buckling.
Add this completed section to the white card base.
Using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, add the sentiment over the ribbon.
That is beautiful! I am really loving that Thanks die cut; I've sort of fell down a rabbit hole of die cut videos on YouTube and have been anxious to add more die cuts to my collection. Pinned.ReplyDelete

Very pretty card! I like how the word "thanks" is somewhat 3-dimensional.ReplyDelete
