Learn How to Make a Fall Thank You Card

2021-Sept-Neva-FallThanks

By Neva Cole –

In today’s card making tutorial, I will show you how to create a Fall themed “Thanks” card using three different inks. The Autumn colors are vibrant and blend well with kraft card stock and burlap ribbon.  I hope this card inspires you to think of all things pumpkin spice and apple cider as we head into fall!

Skill:  Intermediate

Time:  1.5 hours

Directions:

2021-Sept-Neva-FallThanks-Step1ab2021-Sept-Neva-FallThanks-Step1c

Step 1

Spritz white cardstock with Fireworks! Lady Bug, Tangelo, and Dandelion.  I like to start with the darkest color first working to the lighter color to fill in the last areas of white.  Set aside to dry.

2021-Sept-Neva-FallThanks-Step2
Step 2

Use Memento Peanut Brittle and Rich Cocoa ink pads and press directly on the cardstock. This creates a splotchy look.

2021-Sept-Neva-FallThanks-Step3

Step 3

Die cut the Fireworks! colored cardstock with Skeleton Leaves dies.  Cut an outline to back the leaves either by hand or with an electronic die cutting machine.  Adhere the layers together with On Point Glue.  Small dots in the thicker areas of the leaves works best.

2021-Sept-Neva-FallThanks-Step4

Step 4

Die cut one “Thanks” sentiment from the Fireworks! colored cardstock and three from white cardstock.  Layer together with On Point Glue to create a dimensional sentiment.  To avoid glue from leaking out from between the layers, use small dots of glue on the outside edges.

2021-Sept-Neva-FallThanks-Step5

Step 5

Use a soft rubber brayer to ink cardstock trimmed to 4.74” x 5.75”.  Kaleidacolor in Autumn Leaves was used with the green portion in the middle and the light orange on either end of the cardstock.  Flip the cardstock to achieve this look.

2021-Sept-Neva-FallThanks-Step6

Step 6

Pressure emboss the cardstock with Basket Weave embossing folder.  Use a sanding block to remove color and allow the embossed design to pop.

2021-Sept-Neva-FallThanks-Step7

Step 7

Using Tear It! Tape, adhere your A7 kraft card base to background. Then tape the burlap ribbon. The Tear It! Tape, it’s translucent enough that it does not show through the burlap, and will hold the card together.  Adhere the “Thanks” sentiment and the leaves with On Point Glue.

Make a Cheery Birthday Card Using Fireworks! Shimmery Sprays

2021-Aug-Neva-Fireworks!-Bday-card-step7

By Neva Cole –

In today’s card making tutorial, I will show you how to use your Fireworks! Shimmery Spray inks in different ways rather than just spraying them!  All of the blooming sunflowers during my travels were the inspiration for this late summer birthday card.  It is very cool that sunflower heads follow the sun throughout the day, and they are always bright and cheery!

Skill:  Intermediate

Time:  1.5 hours

Directions:

2021-Aug-Neva-Fireworks!-Bday-card-Step1

Step 1

Stamp sunflower image in Delicata Golden Glitz and heat emboss with Iridescent Embossing Powder.  The Delicata Golden Glitz is one of the brightest gold inks, and works best for a sunflower.  Die cut with an electronic die cut machine, or fussy cut with scissors.

2021-Aug-Neva-Fireworks!-Bday-card-Step2
Step 2

Use a brush tip Fantastix to color in the center of the sunflower with Delicata Black Shimmer.

2021-Aug-Neva-Fireworks!-Bday-card-Step3

Step 3

Shake the Fireworks! spray until all of the shimmer is mixed in.  When the spray sits for awhile, the shimmer settles to the bottom and can be seen as a thin layer through the bottle.  Remove the spray lid and tap a bit of Fireworks! on your work mat from the end of the plastic tube.  Use a fine tip paint brush to paint the sunflowers a beautiful iridescent Dandelion Yellow.  Yellow ink is one of the more difficult inks to use, and this method solves that dilemma!

2021-Aug-Neva-Fireworks!-Bday-card-Step4

Step 4

Stamp the leaf image in Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy and heat emboss with Iridescent Embossing Powder.  Using embossing powder helps maintain the original ink color of the image while painting over with Fireworks! spray.  It also allows you to color inside the lines much more easily! Use a fine point paint brush to add Fireworks! in Bamboo Leaves.  Die cut or fussy cut the leaves.

2021-Aug-Neva-Fireworks!-Bday-card-Step5

Step 5

To get a finer sprinkling of more carefully located drops of Fireworks!, use the same paint brush and gently tap over the card stock to create a fine splatter pattern.  When using the spray nozzle, the color is denser on the cardstock.  Finish the edges by inking with an ink blusher and Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy.

2021-Aug-Neva-Fireworks!-Bday-card-Step6

Step 6

Edge the base card with an ink blusher and Delicata Golden Glitz.  Using inks throughout the card allows for perfect coordination.

2021-Aug-Neva-Fireworks!-Bday-card-step7

Step 7

Position the leaves and sunflowers on the card front to determine the location for the sentiment.  Stamp the sentiment in Brilliance Pearlescent Ivy and heat emboss with Iridescent embossing powder.  Adhere the layers of the card together.  The card front and leaves are adhered with Tear-It! Tape, and the sunflowers are adhered with thin dimensional foam adhesive.
