Hello again! Today I was lucky enough to spend a few minutes making a card for this weeks’ Global Design Project challenge, which I thought I’d share with you all.

This week is a theme challenge – Thank You. We really don’t say thank you enough, do we? Handmade cards a beautiful way to show how grateful we are to those we love, and my creation is going to a dear friend and work colleague.

GDP027 Thank you

My creation was inspired by a gorgeous card I’d seen on Pinterest recently (this one). I started with a card base of thick Whisper White, and cut a piece of Basic Gray cardstock, on an angle, for the front.

The piece of Basic Gray cardstock was stamped and heat embossed with the medium ‘Thank You’ stamp from Another Thank You, using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Around this, I stamped a smaller thank you sentiment repeatedly, using Versamark, and allowed it to dry, leaving a watermark effect.

Using the Botanical Blooms stamp set and matching Framelits, I stamped and cut a few leaves and flowers. A little sponging around the petals and leaves added some depth; and the stamens for each flower were coated entirely with Versamark, and heat embossed with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder.

I finished off the card using my favourite embellishments – Basic Rhinestones and Metallic Sequins! :D

And here it is:

    Fabulous! I love your take on the original Rachael. The sharp angles are softened beautifully by the flowers. Gotta have those sequins – we all love bling, lol. Thank you so much for playing at Global Design Project with us.

    Rachael – this card is AMAZING! I love every detail about it – from the “thanks” stamped over and over in the background to the super-fun layout. Perfect! Thank you so much for playing along with this week’s “Thank You” theme challenge at the Global Design Project.
