Make a "Thank You" Card with a Fun Picnic patterned Background using Tsukineko inkpads

Summer to me means picnics with buffalo checkered tablecloths and picnic blankets in the park. These classic one-color solid plaid patterns were my inspiration for this “Thank You” card. I created this fun and cheerful design using Brilliance Galaxy Gold for a summer glow.

Skill: Beginner
Time: 1 hour + dry time


Step 1

Stamp clouds and other images on smooth white cardstock using VersaFine Clair Nocturne and emboss the images using Imagine’s embossing powder in Clear.


Step 2

Color your images using a small paintbrush and All-Purpose Inks. Paint the balloon using Vegas Gold All-Purpose Ink to match the background color.


Step 3

Trim a smooth cardstock panel and mask off lines using painters tape. Ink the exposed areas using Brilliance Galaxy Gold.


Step 4

Remove the tape and add tape in the opposite direction and ink again.


Step 5

Carefully remove the tape to reveal your golden inked Buffalo check design.


Step 6

Water down pink or blue ink to splatter onto the background. Use VersaFine Clair Golden Meadow ink and a Jumbo Dauber to stencil a sun pattern in the top corner.


Step 7

Adhere the colored elements. Add a layer of GlazOn and lightly sprinkle with clear glitter.


Step 8

Add a stamped sentiment and some diamanté. Adhere the panel to the front of a folded card base.
