Hi everyone and welcome to a brand new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
This week's challenge is all about "Thank You"! Whether you decide to make tags for store bought things or homemade thank you gifts and cards, there is no nicer way than creating your own personal way of saying thanks!
For my project, I think it's safe to say that the majority of us all love surprises and I decided to create a card with a coffee theme and a surprise little gift card wallet hidden away inside! Hope you'll follow along to see how I made it...
Now, to create the panels for the inside and outside of your wallet and for this, I cut two pieces of white card that would fit on each of the panel, leaving a border showing around the outside. I applied Cracked Pistachio Distress Paint to the surface of each piece of card and used a heat tool to dry.
I then took the front panel and embossed this using the Courtyard and Trellis Texture Fade. I lightly sanded over the embossed areas to remove some of the paint and then inked around the edges of both pieces with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink.
Attach the plain panel to the back section of the card. Matt the embossed panel onto a piece of corrugated card and mount onto the front section.
Using the Splat die from the Scribbles and Splat die set, die cut Manila card stock. Ink the cut images using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and attach them to the inside and the outside of your wallet.
We're nearly there and all that we need to do now is create our little tag and for this, I used a size 8 Manila tag and cut it down to measure 12.5cm in length. I painted the tag with a blend of Cracked Pistachio and Antique Linen Paint and then added a panel of embossed card.
I hand dyed some ribbon with Cracked Pistachio Distress Stain and tied the ribbon into a scruffy bow at the top of my tag.
I really hope you've enjoyed how I created my fun little gift card.
