This month my Customer Thank You Cards are inspired by the Annual Catalog. If you are ever looking for inspiration the Annual Catalog is a great place to start, it’s a treasure trove of amazing creations. I took the inspiration from page 68, the Simply Elegant Suite card. I love the elements in this card, it showcases Designer Series Paper and stamping directly on to the cardstock card base.
To make my card I started with stamping the beautiful swirl from the Sentimental Swirl stamp set on the left side of the cardbase. I love stamping tone on tone, it really makes the already pretty colors so much richer. I also stamped some of the swirls on the inside of my cards.
Next, I cut strips of the Abstract Beauty DSP and Gold Foil paper. I adhered the DSP to the Gold Foil Strip, then using Multipurpose Liquid Glue, added them to the right side of the card base.
I stamped the sentiment from the Flowering Tulips stamp set in Magenta Madness on the label. Before adding the label to my card, I adhered a gold foil element from the Expressions in Ink Ephemera Pack to the back of the lable with some Stampin’ Seal. I cut a piece of Foam Adhesive sheet which I added to the back of the label over the Gold Foil element. Doing this keeps the Gold Foil element lifted off the card but firmly in place on the back of the label.
I wanted to use all the 2020-2022 In Colors and the Abstract Beauty DSP was perfect to pair with these pretty colors. Once I started taking photos of my cards, I had some inspiration to add just a touch of bling, I brushed a little Wink of Stella on the swirls. I love the look, but it was hard to photograph.
