Glittery Thanks
by Laura Fulcher


Greetings friends. I am once again using the new Valentine dies for holiday cards. I don't know about you, but I have to make a ton of thank you cards this time of year. It might be a bit presumptuous of me, but I think I will need Christmas and birthday thank you card really soon.

To make the card, I first made my own floral textured background with one of Memory Box's wonderful 3-D embossing folders. You really do get a lot of depth and dimension. One thing to remember before running your paper and folder through your die cutting machine is to lightly mist your paper or wipe it down gently with a baby wipe so that the pattern doesn't crack in the embossing folder. The 3-D embossing folders have a lot of detail, but they put a lot of pressure on the fibers of your paper. Pre-wetting the cardstock with water will really help with that.

Next, I cut out my heart outline and inside of the hearts with glitter paper. It might be the holidays, but I really have been enjoying sparkle and bling right now.

To finish the card, I added my sentiment in grey Versafine ink as well as a few clear rhinestones. Here is a close up:


Thank you so much for stopping by!
