Thank you cards are a must-have!
There are lots of pieces to this card but it really isn’t a lot of work because the Love You Always Specialty DSP does all the “work” to make this card so special! Thanks to France Martin for sharing this design.
Let’s do the cutting…
Sahara Sand Cardstock #121043 – cut 1 @ 7-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, scored @ 4-1/4″; cut 1 @ 7″ x 3″, scored @3-1/2″
Very Vanilla Cardstock #101650 – cut 1 @ 5-1/4″ x 4″; cut 1 @ 2-1/4″ x 1-1/2″
Early Espresso Cardstock #119686 – cut 1 @ 5-1/4″ x 3″; cut 1 @ 3-1/4″ x 2-1/4″; cut 1 @ 2-1/2″ x 1-3/4″
DSP – Rococo Rose #154280 – cut 1 @ 5-1/4″ x 3″; cut 1 @ 5″ x 2-3/4″; cut 1 @ 3-1/4″ x 3/4″
DSP – Sahara Sand #154280 – cut 1 @ 3-1/4″ x 2-3/4″; cut 1 @ 3″ x 2-1/2″
Now we can fold and assemble…
Fold the Sahara Sand card base on the scoreline and burnish it with the Bone Folder. Use Early Espresso Classic Ink #147114 to stamp the greeting from the Happy Thoughts stamp set #154507 on Very Vanilla cardstock. Fold the second piece of Sahara Sand on the scoreline and burnish it with the Bone Folder. Slide 1/2 of this piece underneath the Very Vanilla layer placing it near the centre. Make sure the layer will fold inwards without binding.
Use Early Espresso Classic Ink to stamp the greeting for the front from the Happy Thoughts stamp set on Very Vanilla cardstock. Attach the greeting to Early Espresso cardstock. Decorate the layers with DSP and cardstock layers as shown in the pictures.
Embellish with Pastel Pearls #154571 to complete the sparkle.
