Today I am sharing one of the cards I had to make for my lovely friend Ann – she wanted Halloween and Thanksgiving cards – I shared a couple of the Halloween cards so thought today would be a Thanksgiving day!
I bought this kit from www.cardmakingdownloads.com, its called OTT Thanksgiving kit and was designed by Craftystash
The kit has 5 sheets in all – the card base, insert, decoupage elements and 2 pieces for the envelope
So materials for this card I used ….
Heat mat to work on and protect your surface – I always use it...
A4 white card stock
The 5 printed sheets
PVA glue – I use Cosmic Shimmer
Sakura quickie glue pen
Crafters Companion Stick & Stay
Double sided tape
Eazi Score Board & tool
Tonic 8” guillotine
Shaping tool from www.dimensionstamps.com
Foam shaping mat – stamping mat or even a mouse mat
To make the card ...
I roughly cut out the base image then sprayed the back of the sheet and after 30 seconds pressed it onto the sheet of white card then carefully cut the design out – I did the same with the full image on the decoupage sheet – this needed the card to support it as it was an over the top design.
I popped onto the Eazi Score Board and formed the crease down the marked line – folded the card and then ran the score tool over the crease to make it sharp.
It was then as simple as cut out all the decoupage elements and build up the design using sticky pads and shaping the top most pieces before adding the sticky pads
The sheets with envelope panels were cut out and all the score lines were done on the Eazi Score Board and sharpened using the tool...
Double sided tape was put onto 3 sides then when the back was peeled away I carefully lined the 2 pieces together
This then left just decorating the card which I did by picking out highlights with the quickie glue pen then covering with glamour dust
Glossy accents were also added to parts of the card
It goes without saying Ann was really pleased with the card and I am sure the person she has posted it off to will be thrilled with it to...
Back here tomorrow folks -
Hope to see you then....
