Thanks, You Are The Best
by Dana Kirby


Good Morning Friends! I hope you all are doing well. I am excited to be back with you all today to share a Thank You card. I am always needing a thank you card... so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to get one made and hopefully share a little inspiration too. Let’s get started, shall we?

I started my card by creating my background. I used the Fractal Diamond Stencil and Distress Oxide Ink in Black Soot. I sprayed the back of my stencil with Pixie Spray to hold it in place, and applied my ink directly onto my stencil and card panel in an even motion. I just love the detail of this stencil!


I set my background aside and began working on my Thanks layered sentiment. I began by glueing .25 inch strips onto a piece of thin copy paper in rainbow order. 


Next, I ran the strips through my die cutting machine with the Thanks Outline shadow die. 


Using the same Thanks Outline Die, I ran the top layer through my die cutting machine with white and black cardstock. I attached the two letters together, offsetting the black letter behind the white to create a shadow. Although the black shadow is a subtle detail, I think it helps my letters stand out a little more.


For my sentiment, I stamped You Are The Best from the You Are Awesome Stamp Set onto a black banner. I then added and heat set it with white embossing powder. This is such a great stamp set, it has the perfect sentiment for so many occasions. 


To finish my card, I trimmed down my ink blended card panel and attached it to an A2 card base. Lastly, I attached my Thanks and sentiment banner to my card front with foam adhesive.


Thanks for joining me today! I will be back soon to share another project with you all.

Enjoy your day,

Dana Floral Signature copy









Love the way you used that Thanks die!

Hi Dana, Wow !! I love how you have created the rainbow strips and then die-cutting the 'thanks' and then shadowing with the black and then the smaller 'thanks' on top, how very effective this is, I really love this card.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

So pretty!

Love how your colorful sentiment sticks out from the back and white background!

The thanks sentiment came out so awesomely!

That looks so cool. It glows!

The layered sentiment is lovely against the geometric background!

Looks like fireworks behind the sentiment!
