Ornate Thanks Notecard

Hello and welcome to Part 3 of my Ornate Garden Suite Showcase! If you have missed the previous instalments you can find them here… Part 1 and Part 2.

Today I would like to share with you a notecard and matching envelope that I created using the Ornate Garden Speciality Designer Series Paper (DSP). These envelopes are quick and simple to make but really add some ‘wow factor’ to your cards.

Let’s make it… Notecard

The card base is created from Terracotta Tile cardstock and measures 12.8 x 11.4cm, scored at 6.4cm along the long edge. This is followed by a piece of the Ornate Garden DSP which has been cut out using one of the Ornate Layers Dies. I have adhered a length of Terracotta Tile ribbon to the die cut using Tear & Tape.

The sentiment is stamped onto Terracotta Tile cardstock using Versamark ink and heat embossed in Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder. This is cut out using one of the Stitched Rectangle Dies and adhered to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The final touch is provided by a few Gilded Gems.

Let’s make it… Envelope

The envelope is created from a piece of Ornate Garden DSP measuring 18 x 15.5cm. Along the 18cm edge, the DSP is scored at 3.5 and 16cm. Along the 15.5cm edge, the DSP is scored at 4 and 11cm. The rectangles formed by the score lines are snipped away and an extra notch removed at each edge to produce tabs.

Two pieces of Terracotta Tile cardstock are cut out using the 0.5″ Circle Punch. A hole is made in the centre of each of these and at two points on the reverse of the envelope (as shown below). Metallic brads are inserted through the holes. A length of Old Olive ribbon is wound around the brads to secure the envelope.

To decorate the front of the envelope, a length of Terracotta Tile is adhered using Tear & Tape. To follow this, the sentiment and flower image are stamped onto Terracotta Tile cardstock in Versamark ink and heat embossed using Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder; this is then cut out using one of the Ornate Layers Dies. This piece is adhered to the envelope using Multipurpose Liquid Glue. The final touch is again provided by a few Gilded Gems.

Taking the extra of effort to create this matching envelope really makes this project special. I’m sure you know someone who deserves this special touch.
