Thanks - Judi Kauffman Guest Designer

Designer Judi Kauffman is back as today's guest designer. Her project is a thank you card made with our  new "Thanks" die.
Quietfire Design's new Thanks die
She cut the word from alcohol ink-altered ShimmerSheetz, backed with Elizabeth Craft Designs' transparent double sided adhesive sheet before cutting.* 

She sewed on the star beads with pink thread, but you could use Beacon GemTac glue if you don't feel like stitching. 

The leaves are gold outline peel-offs on the same ink-altered Shimmer Sheetz (fussy cut along the outline), accented with Gold/Silver Glitter Dots peel-offs. 

Judi used a soft pink cardstock rectangle atop an Anna Griffin patterned paper left side folded card base and foam tape to pop up the leaves. 

(*Reminder: You MUST use a metal adaptor plate when die cutting Shimmer Sheetz - review the YouTube video if this is new to you.  Also when cutting Shimmer Sheetz backed with double-sided tape, it's necessary to use the Elizabeth Craft Design's transparent double-sided tape which is thinner than other brands.)

A big thanks to Judi for sharing this beautiful card and technique with us!
