It's A Two 'Fer

Today's 'Thank You' cards feature the versatility of one metal die using both the "positive" and the "negative" cuts.  Make two cards quickly and easily and there's no waste!


Squeeze several drops of alcohol ink (3-4 colors) onto a non-stick craft mat. Spritz water onto colors to dilute their intensity then drag a 1 1/2 x 5 1/2" glossy card stock strip through the ink until entire strip is covered and colors are blended.  This ink will dry in just a few seconds. Die cut using the Script Thanks.

  • Create the "fish-tail" cut by inserting the strip at an angle into a square punch.  
  • Elevate the "Thanks" on both cards using mounting tape.
  • Use embossing folders to create a textured background on the white note cards.

    Die cut the poppies and adhere to both cards.  Add a ribbon to the top fold and round lower corners.These cards can be completed in 15-20 minutes.

    Great ideas and these are lovely! Thanks!

    Oh Jenny....these cards are great! And using the positive and negative is so nice with no waste...love it!!

    Love these sweet cards, thanks!

    Love both cards how you used both negative and the words as well, two very different cards and yet a lot the same. I sure love that flower die, it is lovely and finishes your cards very nicely. I am going to have to get that flower die. Thank you for the inspiration I was stuck for a BD card for someone special but now I have your idea. I think the recipient will be thrilled.
