Using Scraps for Quick Holiday Thanks
If you are anything like me you have a stack of panels set aside that maybe didn't work for another card or from technique trials. I have a whole drawer full. They are way to pretty to toss and certainly I'll be able to use them for something, right? Are you with me?
Today, I am sharing a great a way to use those panels, or even scraps, to make quick Holiday Thanks cards. Each year I need a bundle of them for the post carriers, to the house/yard keeper, to gate attendants for our neighborhood. These cards are perfect for employees and party hostesses that you'd like to give a gift card - but want to show a bit more thoughtfulness with.
The Fir Tree Infinity dies are perfect for this project! I die cut several panels that I had played on. Some were watercolor in blues and purples, others like the one featured here are green hued ink sprays that I had dribbled onto Bristol paper. Patterned paper would even be fun!
The sentiment was created with the Thanks Stamp & Cut set. I die cut "Thanks" out of several scraps of shimmer and metallic gold paper. Then I laid out all of the awesome small sentiments from the set over a 6x6 black Midnight Layering Paper and stamped and white heat embossed them them all as one. Super quick!
After trimming them apart I attached each to a strip of Tribal Stripes Bold Prints inked in black on white paper. Finally, adhere all elements to card with a few Champagne Sequins thrown in for sparkle.
