Hello! Today I'm sharing a set of notecards I made for my son to use as Thank You cards. I'm running late so they needed to be really quick and easy. But since I'm not big on mass producing, I needed a bit of variety to them. Yay for Quietfire dies! Did you know that there are 3 different "Thank you/Thanks" word dies available? You would think you only need one but I find that having them in different sizes and arrangement really helps.
First, I finally jumped on the alcohol ink background so I had a bunch of them laying around. Most were on the 5"x7" Yupo paper so I simply cut them in half and adhered them to a white card base. And then I got a little more creative with cuts.
After deciding on the shape of the background layer, I die cut all of the different "thanks" type of die cuts to see which one would look best with the different layouts. I came up with these 4 different cards:
For the first card, I simply die cut the new Thank you 3 metal die and placed in on the bottom of the triangle. I did add a layer of Crystal Effects on the die to add just a bit of depth to the die cut.
For the second card, an older Thanks die went perfectly in the angled background.
For the third card, I embossed in silver and split the background along the diagonal.
The last one is simply an oval with a bit of washi tape along the bottom. I'm really glad I had all these different dies that said essentially the same thing because it made the different layouts I had come together easily. Which was your favorite?
