Thanks For Everything

Hello crafty friends! Keeway here, and I have a clean and simple card thank you card to share with you.

I wanted to create a card with just sentiments by stamping simple and clean repetitive patterns, and add a touch of color.

  • Draw straight lines in pencil on the card where you will be stamping the repeated sentiments
  • Leave a small space between your stamped sentiments and draw in a small dot with a black marker
  • Use post it tape to mask of your stamped areas to prep the area for ink blending.
  • Blend each color with some overlap to create a smooth ombre transition
  • Be sure to let all ink dry before erasing your pencil lines to prevent any ink from smearing
  • Because the thanks is delicate, I put down double sided tape on white cardstock before die cutting.
  • Adhere your thanks die in the center of the rainbow ink blend to the center
  • Add pattern paper or washi tape to the vertical edges of the base card for interest
  • Trim the vertical edges of the stamped panel to to let the patterns behind it show
