Rosie Thanks

More fun with Rose Garden Thinlits today.  I decided to change up the card fronts I did from Multi-purpose Roses.  If you missed that day, click HERE to see them.  Today I went with brighter, more fun colors and instead of having a space around the rose cut, I bumped it right up against the Whisper White card stock.


I was in need of some Thank You cards, so that's what I went with today.  These are so beautiful though, they could be for any sentiment you need.


Recipe:

Whisper White Thick Card Stock - 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", scored and folded at 4 1/4"
Basic Gray - 5 1/4" x 4"
Colored Card Stock (you're choice) 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"
Whisper White - 5 1/8" x 3 7/8"

Place the Rose Garden Thinlit wherever you would like it on your Whisper White.  Be sure if you are going to make multiples, you keep the rose with the piece of card stock it came from so they line up perfectly on your color card stock.



This is a tip I've shared before, but it is worth repeating so that you can get the best results when attaching any thinlits to your card stock.
My favorite way is to use the Tombo Multi-purpose Glue (you'll hear us call it 'green glue' because of the green bottle).  Sparingly place little dots or short lines of glue on the back of the rose (or other thinlit you are using).  Don't worry, it dries slowly, so you'll have plenty of time to get your glue on there.  Then, leave it alone for a few minutes.  This way it will dry up just a tad, and when you turn it over to place it on your card, you won't have glue oozing out away from the edges.  Perfect!


It's hard to see here, but if you click on the picture, it should open to a bigger window for you to see it better.  Then you can see the dollops of glue.  The BEST tool you can have when working with any adhesive is the Silicon Craft Mat.  A must have!


While waiting for the glue to dry a bit, place your corner piece of whisper white onto your color cardstock, then you will be ready to add the roses.



Thank you for looking in today.  I hope this has inspired you to pick up the Rose Garden Thinlits Dies - and remember they BUNDLE with the Rose Wonder Stamp Set.  Save 15% and receive them both!

  1. Oh fun, I was wanting to see this in other colors and more on how you did this - my wish has been granted! Not sure which is my favorite color but I think the So Saffron might be. Love it with the matting but then again they all do. Hope you are feeling better!
