A card to say thanks for helping me grow
If you have someone in your life that has contributed to your personal growth -then you need to make this card to say thanks for helping me grow!
Yes, it’s a little bit tongue in cheek -because the theme of this card is actually all about plants.
I will show you just how easy it us to make this card -just follow the steps below.
What you need to make a card to say thanks for helping me grow:
I used a piece of thick basic white cardstock cut at 5½” x 8 ¼” -scored at 4 1/8″.
Then I cut a piece of designer series paper that measured 5½” x 4 1/8″.
I used the artfully composed designer series paper.
I glued the designer series paper onto the card front.
Now for the details
Once I glued the designer series paper onto the card front, I then cut a strip of vellum to go across the paper.
I used the brand new vellum layering designs that can be found in the current mini catalogue.
I then cut a piece of evening evergreen cardstock and die cut it -using the very interesting die in the Brilliant Wings die.
I glued that mid-way over the vellum.
The next thing I did was to cut some white seam binding ribbon -but you can use the white frayed ribbon featured in the mini catalogue on page 87..
I then glued that over the evergreen embossed cardstock.
I next stamped a piece of yellow cardstock with words, and then cut out a thin strip.
I used tear and tape to adhere it onto the ribbon.
I then stamped the saying “thanks for helping me grow” onto basic white cardstock.
I used my layering circle die to cut it out and adhered it over the yellow cardstock.
I then made a bow with linen thread and glued it down using a glue dot.
The finishing touches
I used the faux sea glass shapes to add some interest – odd numbers is always a good way to display the embellishments.
And with that a card to say thanks for helping me grow is all finished!
Hope you found that inspirational?
