It’s time for a new release from Simon Says Stamp. It’s called Crafty Hugs and it’s filled with all sorts of crafty goodness. I will be sharing a number of cards this week featuring new products from the release. I will also be participating in the blog hop on Saturday so stay tuned! Today’s card uses the following new release products:

So Beautiful

Extra Large Thank You die

To make this card base, I cut the front fold panel 5″ wide X 11″ long. I scored at 7″ to make the inside 5″ X 7″ inside panel, leaving 4″ for the front panel. I also cut a 5″ wide X 5-3/8″ long card front panel for the flowers. This will be attached to the 4″ side at the top fold, to extend the front panel length to 5-3/8″ total.

This 5″ X 7″ card boasts one big XL “thank you” with a beautiful background of garden flowers. To make this card, I stamped the background on 80lb Neenah Solar White cardstock using my MISTI tool. I colored the entire design using my Copic Sketch Markers. I added random black specks on the background using a black marker.

I die cut the thank you out of two colors of blue cardstock. I also die cut the shadow die out of white and the “thank” word out of 4mm black craft foam. The words and shadows were adhered together using Gina K Connect Glue.

The top fold panel ends at the bottom of the “thank” and before the diagonal stripe pattern paper begins. (See above for all the card panel dimensions.)

From the inside, I added a small flower and coordinating blue cardstock strip measuring 5″ wide X 1-1/2″ tall on the inside of the top fold. I also added a 5″ wide X 2″ tall black/white diagonal stripe strip to the bottom portion of the inside panel and attached the “you” word, lining up the “you” with the “thank” word from the exterior panel. This card fits in an A7 envelope for mailing.
