Shari Acuff's Cute Thank-You Card Idea

Happy 2018!  Shari here again with a thank you card idea.

I’m leaning toward simple colorful cards lately, especially liking rainbow color schemes.  Maybe it’s all the gray rainy weather in the northwest, probably is!  (I’m ready for Spring.)

I didn’t need many supplies to make this one and I really like how it turned out.

White Cardstock 7”x7” – folded to a 3.5” x 7” card
Rubbermoon Stamp – JS7073K Flock Together
Primsacolor Pencils
Cardstock – pink, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple
Savvy Stamps – Many Thanks Die
Ranger Multi Medium Matte (strong liquid adhesive)


Using the Many Thanks die for placement reference, I first stamped the Flock with Planetary Purple (just the purple side of the pad) onto the white card.  Then cut out Many Thanks, 2 each of 7 colors.  Once all the dies were cut out and cleaned up I glued them all together starting at the bottom of the rainbow and working up – 2 purples, 3 blues, 2 greens and so on with pink being at the top.





The stack ends up being almost a ¼ of an inch tall.  It could be mailed in a bubble mailer or I could do just one layer of each color for a flatter stack that could make it through the mail in a regular envelope.  But I love the dimension and rainbow effect that comes from the tall stack!


Now that the ink was good and dry and the Many Thanks stack was glued together and drying, I colored in the birdies.  I started at the top and used pink and red on the smallest bird.  Then orange and yellow on the next one down.  Green and blue on the third one, then purples on the biggest guy at the bottom.  And used orange on all the beaks and legs.  Lastly, I glued on the thanks stack at the bottom so it would sorta look like the birds were standing on it.


I considered stamping more images on the background but I really like the colorful birds on the clean white card.  




Happy Stamping!
Shari
