Ornate Thanks Card
Now that Christmas is over, I find myself in need in thank you cards. The Ornate Thanks bundle is perfect for this. I don’t know about you, but I’m a little tired of red and green. So I have chosen to make my card using Mint Macaron cardstock and Calypso Coral cardstock.
Ornate Thanks Card Instructions
For the card base, I used think white cardstock cut to 5 1/2″ x 8-1/2″. Then I used one of the Ornate Borders dies (I highly recommend ordering the bundle, because you save 10%) from the bundle to create the beautiful border on the right side of the card. Once that border is cut, you can see the inside of the card. For me, the border didn’t stand out much with white on white. So I cut a strip of Calypso Coral cardstock to 1-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ and adhered that on the inside of the card base. Now, once the card is closed, that border detail really shows.
Next, I cut a piece of Mint Macaron cardstock to 2-12″ x 4″ and embossed it with the Ornate Floral 3D embossing folder to give it some texture. I love embossing folders. They provide dimension and texture to any card.
My focal image is stamped on white cardstock cut to 2″ x 3-1/2″. I stamped everything in Early Espresso ink before coloring with my blends.
To complete my card, I added a small bow using the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack.
If you would like to recreate my card, I would suggest ordering the Ornate Garden Suite, then you only need to enter one item number. You will still receive 10% off of both stamp and die bundles. You can also order them from my online shop here.
