Pony Thank You Cards

January 29, 2017

My daughter’s birthday is over and that means THANK YOU CARDS! We spend most of the day creating cards. I, personally, think it was a great day.

I found ink smooshing to be a quick way to create a lot of interesting cards. We made nine Thank You cards, three teacher valentine cards, and one birthday card in one afternoon.

We were short one pony, so we substituted some chickens


Size:  Horizontal side fold A2 cards

Extra Details: We started by stamping the pony images on some watercolor paper. I used Distress Inks to water color all of the ponies. I only used two colors on each pony. Once the ink was dry, I fussy cut them out.  

We die cut some stitched panels from water color paper. Using the same Distress Inks, I ink smooshed two colors on each panel. I let the first color dry before adding the second color. Once the second color was dry, I added another layer of the first color. Once those colors were dry, I flicked some black ink on to create some very small drops of black ink. These didn’t turn exactly the way I had hoped, but the overall effect is nice.

While everything was drying for the last time, I die cut the Scripty Thanks from some black card stock. I adhered the matching pony and one Thanks to each panel. Then I added some details to the ponies with a white gel pen and some colored glitter gel pens. It was such a fun detail to add.

Lastly, I made my card bases and attached the water color panels and the cards were done.
