I Appreciate You Distressed Thankyou card

This card was made using Hero Arts CL290 Printed Flowers and CL272 All Occasion clear stamps. Another card designed for the Hero arts weekly challenge.

Made with a brown craft card base - standard A5 size.

  • Start with a dark chocolate mat 10x14cm, four 3cm squares cut from the brown craft card, four 4cm squares cut from a sandy brown card and an 8.5x4cm rectangle also cut from the sandy brown card.

  • Distress the edges of the 3cm brown craft card squares and the rectangular sandy brown card by rubbing the edges along a Walnut Ink Stain Stamp Pad.

  • Glue the small 3cm squres to the centres of the sandy brown 4cm squares.

  • Stamp the flowers from the Hero Arts CL290 Printed Flowers Clear Stamps onto different coloured brown card scraps using the Walnut Ink Distress Pad. See the pic for colour and design choice. Cut these out and set aside.
  • Stamp the three messages fom the Hero Arts CL272 All Occasion Clear Stamps onto the rectangular sandy brown card, once again, use the Walnut ink pad.
  • Now align the small squares and the stamped rectangle on the large dark chocolate mat. Refer to the pics. Glue into place.
  • Centre four of your cut out flowers onto the small squares and stick in place with magic mount.
  • Add black pearls to the centre of the top right flower and the little stamped flower on the message.
  • The insert has been cut from Yes Paper and lightly distressed around the edges with the Walnut Ink stain stamp pad.
