Thank You Card | Banners & Bows Promotion

I saw this card on page 12 of the Celebrating Life’s Moments – Spring into Summer Trends mini catalog.  I loved how bright it was and thought what an awesome Thank You card for my customers.    I didn’t have the Banner Parade Dies (DI-0031) so I had to improvise but you’ll be happy to know that the Banner Parade Dies are on their way to me because after I made this card, I wanted to make sure that I had them in my stash of craft supplies.  I already have an Amaze machine (TO-0134) but if I didn’t, I would have bought the  Banner & Bows Bundle (BD-0391) [You will understand why when you see that you get the Amaze Machine for Free as part of the Banner & Bows Bundle], you get some fun dies to play with and the Bundle Price is a fantastic.

Thank You Banners3

Let’s dive into how to make this card.

On a Huckleberry Fusion (CS-0015) card base, I attached a panel from the Sunday Adventure Prints (PP-0053).  I flagged the end using the Grand Pro Shears (TO-0064)  it would have been so much easier to use the Banners Parade Dies, [The Banner Parade Dies can be purchased separately or they are part of the Banners & Bows Bundle (BD-0391) Promotion], and cut  piece of Limeade Splash (CS-0020) and Lemon Drop (CS-0018) card stock.  I used the Charming Thank You (Host Exclusive with an order of $150 – DI-0445) to cut a piece of Black Licorice (CS-0003).  I used Craft Glue (AD-0111) to attach it to the card front.  [Did you know that the craft glue is part of the Banners & Bows Bundle as well].

Thank You Banners2

The sentiment comes from the Inside & Out (SS-0576) stamp set and was stamped in Black Licorice ink (IP-0041) onto a piece of Whip Cream (CS-0040)  card stock and cut out using the Journey Circles Dies (DI-0039).  I popped it up on the card front using Foam Squares (AD-0085).

Thank You Banners

The Butterfly comes from the Small Things Bundle (BD-0373) and was stamped in Black Licorice ink and cut it out using the coordinating dies and the Amaze machine.  I used Turbo Teal (IP-0125) and Electric Lime (IP-0121) splashes and a Blending Brush (TO-0097) to color in the Butterfly and popped it up on the front of the card using Foam Squares (AD-0084).

Thank You Banners4

To finish off the card I added  Journey Sequins – Blue Skies (AC-0113) using Glue Dots (AD-0083).

For years I have had trouble making bows on craft projects.  While I loved using ribbon, it was the bows that kept me away from using it.  Not any more.

Check out this awesome video that FSJ has put together on how to make a double bow.

I just put in a ribbon order and can’t wait for it to come in so I can start making bows.  I love working with our ribbon.

Beautiful Day

I have said it before and I’ll say it again. This month’s Bloom Box is over the top.  This design was included in this month’s box and I loved it so much I had to recreate it.  Here is the alternative version I came up with.  I used the contents of the April 2018 Bloom Box and added a few other items.

Beautiful Day

In your Bloom Box the front panel is already die cut.  Since I used it I needed to create a new panel and I did this using Buttercream (CS-0006) cardstock,  Journey Rectangles Die (DI-0041) and the Fancy Label Die (DI-0035).  On this panel I stamped the floral image from the April 2018 Bloom Box – Love Life in Lemon Drop (IP-0043) and Citrus Cooler (IP-0048) ink.

Beautiful Day3

I stamped the butterfly from the Small Things Bundle (BD-0373) in Black Licorice Ink and cut it out using the coordinating die.  I colored in the butterfly using our Gold Silk (IP-0096) and a Blending Brush(TO-0097).

Beautiful Day2

I love how it turned out and think this color combination is very striking.

Beautiful Day4

May all your hand-made creations be Inked with Kindness, Stamped with Love.

I hope you have a beautiful day!!
