Simple But Colourful Thank You Card!

Hello lovelies! ❤

Today I wanted to share with you a simple way to make a colourful thank you card! Most of us already have some backgrounds sitting around from previous projects that we either didn’t finish or didn’t fit what we had in store for what we were working on at the time. I had this background panel sitting around for a while, so I decided that I was going to use it for an easy card rather than having it collect dust in storage!

~Tools and products used will be listed at the end of this blog post!~

I had this background from experimenting with galaxy backgrounds, but I stopped half way through because I didn’t want to cover up the results from the ink smooshing with something darker! I splattered with my Gansai Tambi metallic watercolours from the “Starry Colors” palette to give it a little bit of shimmer and set aside for another day. When I picked it back up, I knew I wanted to make a relatively easy card so the colour here could be the main focus. I cut the panel in half at an angle so I could save the other half for another project.

I created my card base and cut a panel from white card stock slightly smaller than my base. I then adhered my ink smooshed panel to the bottom right of the panel using my regular tape runner. I took a gold peel off from Love from Lizi and placed it just above the coloured panel, creating a thin border between the panel and the white space above. I cut my sentiment from black card stock using the Lawn Fawn Thank You border die and adhered it diagonally across my white panel using my Ranger multi medium matte adhesive. I adhered some matte black paper to my card base, then adhered my panel to it using foam tape. I finished the card off with some tiny gems for a bit extra sparkle!

Thank you for reading lovelies! ❤ This was a really quick card to make, which is so far out of my comfort zone. I’m always obsessing over whether a card needs “more” (I know I’m not alone here! :p).
