WCMD Challenge #2 - Thank You cards with TaeEun

WCMD Challenge #2 - Thank You cards with TaeEun

Happy World Cardmaking Day! We've got a fun day planned, with challenges every 2 hours from our amazing cardmaking team and tons of inspiration!

Challenge #2: Thank You cards with TaeEun

Hello and happy World Card Making Day 2020!  It's TaeEun. Now it's my turn to host  a fun challenge to celebrate this special day! 

The theme I have chosen is THANK YOU! We need some thank you cards always, right? I used the Thankful for Friends stamp set and Thank You die for my inspiration card.

I started off by heat embossing the beautiful poppies from Thankful for Friends stamp set in gold on a piece of heavyweight YUPO paper. The regular YUPO paper would warp by heat embossing. The heavyweight one stands the heat very well.

I then colored the image using alcohol inks and Copic refills in Sunset Orange, Valencia, Copic refill Y06, Y19, Flamingo, Raspberry. Meadow and Limeade. I used a small brush to color the image. After the coloring was done I splattered Gold Mixative on the whole panel and let it dry.

Next I cut it using the Slim Diagonal Stitched Rectangle die and foam mounted it on a kraft slimline cardbase.

The Thank you was cut four times from some heavyweight white cardstock and once from gold foil paper. I layered them all and added it to the card. I finished off the card with some white Jewels.

Wishing you all a fun World Card Making Day!

Beautiful colors on this card, and I love the shine from the gold.

This card really captured my attention!! I love the bright colours of the alcohol ink. You coloured it so beautifully. And the added touch of the gold thank you die, really brought out the gold embossing around the flowers. STUNNING!

I just got the thank you die in the mail and can’t wait to try it out!

This is so dramatic and beautiful! I didn’t realize Pinkfresh had such large blooms in their repertoire. A very different look for Pinkfresh products (I like the other looks, too :) )
