Bride’s Maid’s Thank You Cards

July 13, 2015

When I updated my blog in February 2016, I lost all the posting I had already done. I am doing my best to put the posts back up but I do not remember all the details for each card.  Unfortunately, the details for this project may be a bit scarce.

I was the maid of honor in a wedding over the weekend. The other bridesmaids were awesome and did a lot of the work. I wanted to thank them so I made a set of thank you cards. I only needed four cards, but made six just in case. I used a different sentiment on the extra cards.

All six cards

The inside of the cards

Details

Size:  A2 card

Extra Details: I started by creating the white panels. I stamped the dresses and water colored them in colors to match the bride’s maids’ dresses. I also stamped the flowers on a separate piece of paper and water colored those in. I fussy cut out the flowers and adhered them to the dresses. Once they were dry, I stamped the sentiments. I adhered the water color panel to a slightly larger layer of patterned paper. I used white card bases for all the cards. I even added a small gemstone to the center of each flower.

I also stamped the dress in a purple ink on the inside of the card to dress it up.

Rainbow Squares and Extra Card

July 2, 2015

When I updated my blog in February 2016, I lost all the posting I had already done. I am doing my best to put the posts back up but I do not remember all the details for each card.  Unfortunately, the details for this project may be a bit scarce.

Laura Bassen had just made a card with lots of beautiful ink blending and a grid of circles. I loved that card so much, I wanted to try and re-create it. However, I did not own a die cut machine or any dies at this point in time, so I went with squares instead. I also had a lot of little tiny pieces left over that I couldn’t bear to throw out so I created a second card.

The original idea

What I made with the left overs.

Details

Size:  Vertical top fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started by ink blending a rainbow on some water color paper. I then cut this sheet into 1 inch squares. I soon realized 1 inch square was still a bit too big, so I trimmed my squares to ¾ of an inch square. I put fun foam on the back of each square and attached it to my card base. I stamped a small sentiment in the last square.

With the left over pieces, I made a second card. I lined up all the little bits on one edge of my card, stamped a larger sentiment and called it a day.

Extra Details:  I started with a grey piece of paper. I ink blended a number of different colors on my card stock. I even used a few metallic inks. After the background had dried I added some stars in silver and gold ink. I put the sentiment on a banner to highlight it.

I had fun with water colors and rock and rolling stamping on this card.

Details

Size:  Vertical side fold A2 card

Extra Details:  I started by water coloring the small panel with dye inks. While that was drying, I stamped and water colored the dress. I used water color pencils for this. Then, I prepped my card base. I used the same dye inks to stamp the background as I did to create the water color panel. I did some rock and roll stamping to create the multi colored flowers. I adhered everything together and stamped my sentiment.
