Thank You, Pops

Hello, hello! I’m having a minor procedure done next month to which my dad is going to be driving me to and from.

I decided that it would be super nice to give him a thank you card for bringing me since all in all it’s going to be about a 200 mile trip for him. He’s got to come to my house, bring me to the hospital, bring me home, and then go back to his house. Lotta driving.

I’m in the middle of a craft room overhaul and have been purging tons of supplies. While going through my patterned paper I happened upon a 6×6 pad from Studio Calico from their Darling Dear collection. This pad has tons of really fun designs.

I decided to use the blue zig zaggy striped paper and the red crosshatched patterned paper to create two separate cards since I liked both.

First I cut my papers down to 5.25″ x 4″. Then I cut two strips of vellum; for the red card I cut it at 1″ x 6.25″ and for the blue at .75″ x 5″. I scored both strips on the long end at .5″ on either side.

Using black and glitter cardstock along with the Big Thanks shadow wafer die from Simon Says Stamp I created two ‘thanks’ die cuts. Before wrapping it around my patterned papers I adhered both die cuts to the vellum; centered on the blue card and to the right on the red.

I used two sentiment strips from the CZ Design Reverse Gratitude set by Simon Says Stamp. I used the “for your kindness” on the blue and the “for being you” on the red. I am 100% in love with these sentiment strips. They are the best thing for card making ever!

Finally I mounted both card panels to Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and added some gems to the blue and sequins to the red.

What do you think?

Until next time,
