Clean and Simple Thank You Cards

Hello Everyone and Welcome!

Today Ksenija is here, and I am happy to share with you a new project dedicated to Autumn.

I started with applying Flitter Glu to a leaf stamp from one of my all time favourite stamp set Blooming Great and stamping it down to a a white card stock panel. Then I covered the impression with Morris Dance Megaflakes and rubbed off the excess.


To create a decorative stripe I used Texture stencil and blended in Distress inks in Abandoned Coral, Fired Brick and Aged Mahogany. Megaflakes are resistant to dye inks, but to restore shine I always wipe off inks after stencilling. To finish off the card I stamped down the sentiment in black Archival ink and mounted the panel to a soft grey card base.


I am always sending many Thank you cards and try to theme them up to the season. This design and techniques are so simple that allow making several cards without big effort. For the second card I used Autumn Blaze Megaflakes and a blend of Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky and Salty Ocean Distress inks.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope, you enjoy these cards.
