Alphabuds Floral Thank You Card

Hi, it's Ruby. I hope you've had some lovely sunshine as we have up here in Scotland.


Today I have a fun-to-make card to share with you an alphabet die set. Here's how it came together:



  1. Using The Greetery's Bold Alphabet Die Set, die-cut the letters to spell out the word thanks. (This is such a gorgeous set, I use it a lot).

  2. Stamp and die-cut two floral buds from The Greetery's Alphabuds Floral Details Stamp Set.

  3. Stencil a background using Altenew's Mountain Lake Die Ink. The one I used is out of stock, but this Leaf Drop Stencil by Altenew would work really well.

  4. With a graphite pencil, add some shading to your stencil to make it look 3-D. Blend the graphite using a paper blending stump, also called a tortillon.

  5. Die-cut the stencilled background using a rectangular stitched die.

  6. Using some slimline dies, die cut one coloured panel and a smaller white panel.

  7. Attached the stencil panel to the card base, then layer the other two rectangular panels on top.

  8. Add the word, thanks, and finish the card by adding the two alpha buds.



If you'd like to learn more about the shading technique I've used on this card, I have a video on YouTube here.



That's it from me today. Have a great week!
