Thanks card

I've been seeing a lot of spring colors lately and was inspired to create a shimmery thank you card for Imagine Crafts using several colors of Brilliance Inks and two colors of Memento Inks.

Here's the card!

Imagine Crafts Products Used:

Pearlescent Sky Blue, Pearlescent Orchid, Moonlight White, Pearlescent Purple,

Pearlescent Ice Blue, Pearlescent Thyme Brilliance Inks

Grape Jelly and Cottage Ivy Memento Inks

Sponge Dauber

Ink Sweeper

Tear It! Tape

Other Products Used:

Mixed Media Paper by Strathmore

Solar White Classic Crest Cardstock by Neenah

Mosaic #54 Stencil by AALL and Create

Wildflowers 1 Thinlits Flower Dies by Tim Holtz for Sizzix

Belly Band Die by Frantic Stamper

"Thanks” die: Source Unknown

Removable Scotch Tape by 3M

91% Isopropyl Alchohol

Heat Tool

Big Shot by Sizzix


Step 1: 

Cut a piece of Mixed Media paper to 4” x 5.25”. Use an Sponge Dauber to apply Sky Blue Pearlescent Brilliance Ink to half of the panel. Use another Sponge Dauber to apply Orchid Pearlescent Brilliance ink to the other side. Blend the two colors of ink in the center. 

Repeat this step with a second piece of paper. Set this piece aside to be used later.

Step 2:

Spray Isopropyl Alcohol onto ink blended paper panel and let sit for a minute. The alcohol will lighten, blend, and add white speckles to the paper. Heat set. 


Step 3:

Use Removable Scotch Tape to tape the background panel to the back of the Mosaic Stencil then use an Ink Sweeper to apply Moonlight White Brilliance ink over the stencil onto the panel.

Step 4:

Remove the tape and the stencil from the back of the panel. Heat set the panel.


Step 5: 

Use three flower dies from the Wildflowers 1 Thinlits Die Set to cut Mixed Media Paper.


Step 6: 

Use Sponge Daubers to apply Pearlescent Purple, Pearlescent Ice Blue, and Pearlescent Lavender to the flowers. Use Fantastix Brush applicators to detail the flowers with Mediterranean Blue Brilliance, Pearlescent Sky Blue Brilliance, Grape Jelly Memento inks. Color the flower stems and leaves with Pearlescent Thyme Brilliance and Cottage Ivy Memento inks.


Step 7:

Use the Belly Band and “thanks” dies to cut the extra panel of paper created in Step 1.

Step 8:

Adhere the flower die-cuts to the stenciled panel. Adhere the Belly Band die-cut over the flower stems. Adhere the “thanks” die-cut to the center ornament of the Belly Band.

Step 9:

Cut a piece of white cardstock in half. Score and fold to form an A2 card. Put a piece of scrap paper inside the card, then use a Sponge Dauber to apply Purple Brilliance ink around the edges of the front of the card. Heat set.

Step 10:
Use Tear It! Tape to adhere the image panel to the card.
