Here is another different style of card that you can use for any occasion or theme.  This is the Tilt Fold Card and just taking a look at it with all of the edges that are peeking out from behind you would never guess that it’s created using only one piece of cardstock would you?  How fun is that?

Clean and Simple Thank You Card

By Card Making and Paper Crafts Contributor Heidi from the blog Blue Scallop Creations.

You can never have too many thank you cards on hand.  Everyone likes to receive a hand written note showing that someone cares.  My project today, is a nice clean and simple thank you card that would be perfect for anyone.  I’ll be using just the Thank You sentiment from the Sizzix Framelits Card Drop In Thank You die set and an embossing folder from Sizzix called Prism Geometrics.  I’ll be adding some masked framing using Salty Ocean and Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide inks.

To start, I cut out the Thank You die in white card stock and embossed some silver shimmer card stock using the embossing folder.  I cut the silver card stock down to a 2.75″ x 4″ panel using a rectangle die but you could use a paper trimmer as well.

I masked off a rectangle on the front of a piece of white card stock cut down to 4″x 5.25″ using Post-It tape.  I used my silver embossed panel as a guide to make a thin frame.   I basically want to have the look of two mats behind the dry embossed focal point without having all the bulk of extra paper.

After removing the embossed panel, I blended Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink over the masked off area.  I just got the edges since I would be adhering the silver embossed panel later.

 

To create a second mat around the first, I masked off a thin frame next to my original.  I did each edge of the rectangle separately, covering the inside edge of the original rectangle with Post-It tape and adding another piece of tape next to it leaving a space for ink blending.  I used Salty Ocean Distress Oxide Ink for this portion.

 

I adhered black foam to the back of the Thank You die cut with some Tombow Mono Liquid glue and then adhered that to my silver embossed panel.  I popped the entire panel up on the front of a 4.24″x 5.5″ vertical gray note card.

Clean and simple, yet packs a punch with the 3D embossed panel and the clean masked frame.  You could make multiples of these using different embossing folders or even different colored inks for the frames.  Thanks so much for joining me today!

Sometimes it’s fun to have a different look to a card.  It’s easy to change the paper and embellishments of a regular card size, but sometimes it’s even more fun to change the shape of it.  This Star Effect Card is a fun idea for one of those times.
