Die Cut Floral Thank You Card – Inky Paws 189


Hello and welcome back!

Today is the start of the first Inky Paws Challenge of the year, and it is the perfect sketch challenge to get started on you Valentine’s Day crafting! Use the sketch below as inspiration and link a photo of your card up to the Inky Paws Challenge Blog for the chance to win $20 to the Newton’s Nook Online Store!

For my card, I started by inking a few panels of watercolor cardstock with a mix of Distress Oxide Inks. Here are the inks I used:

Purple Inks – Victorian Velvet, Seedless Preserves, and Villainous Potion

Teal Inks – Salvaged Patina, Peacock Feathers, and Uncharted Mariner

Green Inks – Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, and Evergreen Bough

After the panels were dry, I die cut a bunch of leaves and flowers using the Flower Trio Die Set. I glued a few layers of each flower together to make each flower a little more interesting. I love this die set for flowers, because you can keep your flowers simple or really make them bold!

To create the background, I cut a white piece of cardstock to 4.25 x 5.5 inches and splattered a mix of the same inks I used for the flowers across the panel. Next, I die cut two banners out of white cardstock using the Banner Trio Die Set. I heat embossed the sentiments “You’re the Best” and “So Many Thanks” from the Heartfelt Blooms Stamp Set in a white embossing powder. After heating the embossing powder, I ink blended Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide over the banner so they would match the flowers.

To finish the card, I glued the flowers in a heart shape and glued both the flowers and the banners to the splattered panel.

I hope you join us in the Inky Paws Challenge for a chance to win $20 to the Newton’s Nook Online Store!

Thanks for stopping by!
