Thank you card - Vintage lady and gent DL card - Day 153 of my 365 day challenge

Thank you card - Vintage lady and gent DL card - 
Day 153 of my 365 day challenge

Hi Craft addicts!

Today's card for my challenge is a quick DL card using this fun vintage style topper I have had for ages - it could either by a Hunkydory or Kanban one - not sure to be honest - but still it is a good one to use on a DL card...


How I made this card:-

  • I first of all scored 4 lines using my scoreboard along the bottom of a DL card (inside first of all and then outside).
  • I then added the topper directly on to the front of the card, leaving a small gap between it and the scored lines using finger lift tape.
  • I then used the rectangular Speech bubble stamp from Hobby Art Stamps set and stamped it on to some white stamping card using Versafine Onyx Black ink.
  • I then stamped the Thanks sentiment in the middle of it using Onyx Black Versafine ink.
  • Once it was dry, I used some blue ink that was left on my Smoothie sponge and coloured it in (I felt it matched the colouring of the topper) and then cut a bit of it off and coloured in the gap using a black fineliner.
  • I then added it to the middle of the scored lines with foam pads and added 3 blue self adhesive gems to either side of it.

And there you are a really easy but fun card to make and would be great to give!
