Hello friends! Today I have a set of four thank you cards showcasing Mommy Lhey stamps, Simon Says Stamp greeting stamps, and an Avery Elle frame die. I absolutely love the mermaid image from the new Mommy Lhey Mermaid Greetings Stamp Set and it inspired this set of thank you's.
I created these cards assembly line style, starting by die cutting four panels from smooth white cardstock using a Avery Elle Wonky Stitches Die. I stamped the mermaid from the Mommy Lhey Mermaid Greetings Stamp Set and a greeting from the Simon Says Stamp Many Thanks Stamp Set with Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink on each panel using the MISTI to make creating multiple cards so super easy.
Next I stamped seaweed from the Mommy Lhey Magical Sea Stamp Set and a gift package from the Mommy Lhey Mermaid Greetings Stamp Set. I masked the seaweed and stamped the bow wrapped candy cane from the Doodled Sweater Stamp Set.
I stamped the word "greetings" from the Mommy Lhey Mermaid Greetings Stamp Set above the thank you stamped phrase using Versamark Ink and heat embossed the greeting with clear embossing powder. You will want to use clear so that the thank you phrase is still legible. I stamped snowflakes from the Mommy Lhey Mermaid Greetings Stamp Set and heat embossed those with clear embossing powder as well.
I created masks for all the images and then applied Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass over the background panel. The clear embossing resists the ink. I removed the masks, buffed any ink off the embossed areas with a dry paper towel, and then colored in all the images with Copic Markers. Additional detailing was added to the images with black and white glaze pens and the Stardust Glitter pen.
I adhered the panels to top fold card bases.
I finished each card by stamping an additional greeting from the Simon Says Stamp Many Thanks Stamp Set on the inside of each card.
