Thank You Tag Tutorial


I am always in need of Thank You cards or notelets for one reason or another and, when I can, I like to have a go at creating my own handmade ones.  This was the finished result from my most recent attempt.

 Let me share with you how I went about it.  Firstly I cut a piece of pale blue card 15 x 8 cm which I then trimmed to make the tag shape.

I then rounded off the corners using the corner trimming feature on my paper trimmer.
Next I cut a small piece of bubble wrap and using an Airondack Denim Blue inkpad stamped across the whole of the tag to create a lovely speckled/blobby effect.
Then I went on to cut a smaller piece of blue card measuring 10 x 7 cm in size.  I used my corner trimmer to round off each of the corners.  Then I used Clarity Stamp Alium 2 with a Versamark pad and stamped these overlapping across this piece of card.
After that I used Perfect Pearls powder (Perfect Pearl shade) and brushed this over the stamped aliums to create a lovely delicate background.
Then, using a Black Archival ink pad I stamped a simple Thank You message at the bottom of the card.  I used Clarity Stamp's Thank You clear stamp to create this.
After this, continuing to use the Archival ink pad I stamped another alium across the card.  I used another Clarity Stamp for this.
Finally I used some foam pads to attach this to the bubble wrap printed tag.  I hole punched the end and will add some ribbon.  You could use brad here as an alternative.
I am sure I will be sharing further Thank You related tags or cards in the future.  Please share your own ideas as I am always looking for ideas.
Bye For Now
