Baby Shower Thank You Card
Hello and welcome to another blog crafty friends.
I hope your day is full of happiness and joy! On today’s blog I would love to share with you this pretty simple and sweet Thank You card that I’ve created in celebration of my Sister-in-law baby shower. I create this to give a special thank you message to her guests for their company and warm wishes at her baby shower. Don’t you think that a handmade message is an absolutely lovely gift for anyone to receive either for a baby shower or for any special occasion?
So Let’s Get Started
To begin with I started by creating a very simple sky for the background as my intention was not about to create a whole scene. And for that I inked up a piece of Bristol paper using a stencil and an ink blending tool with Tumbled Glass distress oxide, as you can see in the picture above.
Then I rotated up side down the paper and I inked up the bottom part of the background with another ink blending tool and Squeezed Lemonade distress oxide ink. I chose yellow as a complementary color for the background.
Once, the background was all inked up. I used a stitched frame die to cut a standard A2 size card panel. And before I adhered it to the card base, I adhered a piece of ribbon between the the sky and the solid yellow color, creating a separation in between. Then, I adhered the backed of it to a white card base.
For the image I stamped the elephant from the stamp set with a copic friendly black ink. Then I did a simple coloring with copic markers in soft colors. Also, I used a white gel pen for highlights.
Here are the colors that I used:
T0, T2, N0, N2, R20 as you can see I used 2 completely different set of toners and grays. Because believe or not I ran out of ink from one of the grays copic markers. I know right!? So, this is a very helpful recommendation in case you have in mind to create 20 cards at once just like I did. A Must “have a re-inker ready to refill your copic color choices.”
Once I was done coloring, I used a die cutting machine and the coordinated die to die cut the cute elephant.
To finish it up, I adhered the backed of the elephant image with foam mounting tape to the card and I added a few confetti mix here and there just to add a little bit of shine to the background.
