Trio of Thanks

April 8, 2018

A friend of mine visited over the spring break with her three kids. This is the thank you card that we sent to them after the visit. I have been loving the little kiddos from Lawn Fawn’s Easter Party set.



Size:  Horizontal top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I began this card by stamping and coloring the three little kids on a scrap of white card stock. I used Prismacolor pencils to color the kids in. I fussy cut them out leaving a small white border.

I used some water color paper and four shades of Distress Oxide inks to create the center panel. I smooshed the ink on my acrylic block, sprayed it with water, and then smooshed it on the water color paper.  I let the block sit for a few minutes to intensify the color. Then I removed the block and let the panel air dry. Once it was dry, I added some more pigment with a paint brush. I flicked the extra pigment on the paint brush around the panel to add interest. To finish the panel, I flicked some water on the panel and blotted it up. Once the water color panel was dry, I die cut it with a cross stitched rectangle die and a script thanks die.

I dry embossed a panel of grey card stock with a dotted embossing folder by Darice. I adhered this panel to a white card base.

It was at this point that I decided I wanted t make a shaker card. I adhered some clear plastic to the pack of the water color panel. I lined the edges with foam tape and added the sequins and beads. I used regular tissue paper to close up my shaker element. I used double sided tape to adhere to layers of tissue paper together to make it strong enough. I used a strong liquid glue to adhere the panel to the card base.

Lastly, I added the three kids around the panel.
