Welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Krew Thursday Blog Hop! We have a fun challenge for today and I’ve created a thank you card with a beautiful poinsettia for a dear friend.

And here’s my card.

Ornate Thanks w/ Poinsettia Petals

This card is for a musical friend – can you see the use of the Merry Melody Embossing Folder? And yes, there’s also Tasteful Textile embossing folder in the foreground. Looking at the card like this, I could have used another layer of Real red card stock behind the Merry Melody EF, but I do like the card as it is. And without the poinsettia, it would be very clean & simple.

Instruction basics:

  • Card based is 4 1/4 x 11 scored at 5 1/2.
  • Layer a panel of Pattern Party DSP 4 1/4 x 5 12, adhering it to the card front.
  • Place a piece of Basic White card stock through the Merry Melody EF and cut to 3 x 4 1/4 and adhere.
  • Using Tasteful Textile 3D EF, run another piece of Basic White through the machine and trim to 2 1/8 x 4 3/8.
  • Layer a piece of Real Red card stock behind this panel (2 1/4 x 4 1/4), adhering together. Place on dimensionals and center on the card front.
  • Stamp two poinsettia using Poinsettia Petals stamp set and Sahara Sand ink on a Basic White piece and die cut both with the Poinsettia Dies. Adhere together with a dimensional and add to the card with liquid glue.
  • Stamp the sentiment from Ornate Thanks in Real Red ink on a Basic White scrap and fussy cut.
  • Adhere the sentiment to a Basic Black panel (1/2 x 2 1/4)
  • Put Stampin’ Seal+ on the back of the Basic Black strip and add the Sheer Ribbon in Real Red. Put dimensionals over the ribbon and add to the card front. Voild – the card front is complete.
Ornate Thanks w/ Poinsettia Petals, inside

For the inside… Red and black are dramatic together, so I played on that by making the inside smaller pieces of card stock: Real Red is 3 1/2 x 4 1/4 while the Basic White is 3 x 3 3/4. The sentiments were stamped using the Ornate Thanks stamp set & Memento Black ink.

For the envelope, I ran a 2 1/4 x 6 piece of Basic White through the Merry Melody 3D EF again and adhered it to the envelope flap, & trimmed to fit. All done!
