Thank You in 3D!

Good morning!  Sherry here today and I have a quick and easy card to share with you.  When I first saw the new Spellbinders™ 3D M-Bossabilities™ folders, I knew that it would be a match made in heaven when teamed with the elegance of Suzanne’s calligraphy.  That open embossed banner on the front of the folders lends itself well to beautiful sentiments.

Recently I had the opportunity to pick up the Thank You Set of 4, and it so happens that I had an idea even then for this card.


The first thing I did, was die cut/embossed 3 sheets of watercolor paper using the new Spellbinders die templates for 5x7 card and for the front cover.  Those dies are S6-001 5x7 Matting Basic A, S6-002 5x7 Matting Basics B and E3D-003 Delightful Daisies.  All of these dies are available for pre-order here at Quietfire.

The Delightful Daisies folder was inked with peach pigment ink, the smallest watercolor paper layer was misted with gold perfect pearls and water and then placed in the M-Bossabilities folder.  Once the paper was embossed, it was removed, dried with a heat gun, and then the edges were inked with more of the same peach ink.

The sentiment was aligned, stamped in the same peach ink and then embossed with clear embossing powder.  To keep the card simple and easily mailed, a sheer ribbon was used down the front.  To keep from covering up any of the stamping, a small slit was cut at the top and bottom of the banner to that I could run the ribbon through.

The edges of the remaining two layers of watercolor paper with sponged with the same peach ink, misted with the gold perfect pearl/water mixture and then assembled.

Well, that’s all I have today.  Thanks for stopping by!

This is a beautiful and elegant card Sherry, and I'm sure even more lovely in person when you can see the shimmer from the Perfect Pearls as well. So glad I ordered this folder!

Glad to see the new folder in action. Love the way to attached the ribbon, and the stamp does look natural in that design.
