Today I’m sharing a Thank-you card using Stampin’ Up – Bella and Friends. I was recently on a cruise and forgot to bring a Thank-you card for our Stateroom Attendant. Her name was Monalisa and she was such a super nice lady who was always smiling and super nice. I told her that I made homemade cards and wanted to make sure that I sent her a special one just for her. Monalisa told me that she loved Lhasa Aspos and so I tried to make this little puppy look like one.
Anna Griffin – Shaker Card Kit was used to make the base and front of the card. The size was 5″ x 5″. I applied the pre-made shaker envelope directly to base card using double sided tape. Once again, I applied double-sided tape to the the shaker bag and then applied the top part of the card from the kit. From the same kit, I also added some liquid glue to the back of the large fancy heart and applied it directly over top of the heart shape on the front of the card.
With a stamping block and little dog stamp from Stampin’ Up – Bella and Friends, I inked the stamp with Memento – Tuxedo Black ink and then stamped it twice off to the side on some spare paper and then onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card. This left the outline nice and light, almost like a no-line stamped image. I wanted it this way as most of the puppy was white and I just wanted the furry outline to look like a shadow. Once the puppy was coloured, I fussy cut around it and added some U-Line Double-Sided tape and popped it up onto the front of the card.
With my Cuttlebug and dies from PaperCrafter Today – 15 Die Cut Sentiment Set, I die cut the words “Thank You” from some scrap Hammermill – Premium Colour 100 lb. cardstock and Recollections – Matte Gold Foil cardstock. I applied some liquid glue to the backs of the 2 die cuts and after joining the 2 cuts together, applied them to the front of the card as well. Lastly, to complete the card, I added some little hearts from Doodlebug Design Inc. – Shape Sprinkles – love this! and rainbow hearts.
