Custom Thank You Cards

Good morning! Dropping by today to share some super special cards that I made recently! I had a request for some custom cards from a friend, and thanks to my sister-in-laws beautiful brush lettering (thank you so much Kristine!!!) and my Minc machine paired up with some other supplies, these cards are the result!

Thanks to the foiling from the Minc machine - these were super hard to photograph!  Other than the wording on the front, the request included blues or purples and snowflakes. Simon Says Stamp Frozen Fractals stamp set was the perfect choice for lots of beautiful snowflakes. Once my sentiment was foiled in either gold or silver, I stamped all the snowflakes, and embossed with clear powder.

I then used a couple different distress inks to blend over the snowflakes - the clear embossing resisted the distress ink making them pop out like that. I also splattered on some water droplets and a few splashes of white paint for more texture and interest.

Used a couple different die cuts, adding matching gold or silver paper to the scallop layer to draw the sparkly parts together on each card.

Finished with a bit of jute twine wrapped and tied around the fronts!

Product links are all below - including affiliate links where possible, which simply means if you use one of the links below that I receive a small commission at no additional cost to you. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!!
