A Yellow Thank You

I love the challenges that various blogs publish.  I find them a great source of inspiration.  This week, Simon Says Stamp's Monday Challenge is Not so Mellow Yellow.  They challenge us to create using the color yellow.  I rarely use yellow as a main color; however, through this challenge I have discovered that I really like yellow and I think I will be using it more often.

In preparation for this card, I raided my craft supplies for everything yellow- embellishments, papers, inks, baker's twine… you name it.  I put it all out on my table and then raided my "inbox" of recently purchased- but not yet used craft supplies.  I have been wanting to use the Hero Arts Thank You Fancy Die that I picked up at Joann's, so I decided that tonight would be the night.

I picked out a pretty yellow-orche floral printed paper from My Minds Eye Indie Chic-Nutmeg 6x6 paper pad.  For the card base and the die cuts I used Neenah Desert Storm card stock.   I cut the Thank You die five times from the Desert Storm card stock. Using Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue, I adhered them together to form a faux chipboard die cut.  I then put them on some painters' tape, smooshed VersaMark ink all over the die cut and embossed it with American Crafts Zing! embossing powder in Butter.


I scored the Neenah Desert Storm card stock into a standard A2 card base and rounded the edges using a 1/2" corner chomped. I cut a layer of Neenah Solar White card stock to 5.25"x 4" and rounded the edges with the same corner rounder.  I cut the patterned paper to 5" x 3.75" and rounded the edges.  I layered the white and patterned paper onto the card base.  I adhered the die cut Thank You using Glossy Accents.

I added a dashed line around the patterned paper layer and added some Lawn Fawn Into the Woods sequins to the card.  I just love the faux chipboard…. look at that dimension!  This is such a great trend in crafting right now.



Thank you for stopping by today.  The supplies I used are listed below.  I will be entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Not So Mellow Yellow.
