A Quietfire Thanks

Thank You Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Quietfire Thanks Die  and Martha Stewart Fans and Flourishes Punch - www.amazingpapergrace.com
Hiya friends, today I’m sharing a card with new Quietfire Dies!  Simply elegant, the “Thanks” was penned then put into design by my sweet friend Suzanne Cannon.  I love that it’s her handwriting and that it works in conjunction with the Thanks stamp set I used earlier this month in this post.   So I made a long profile card that fits into a business sized envelope.  Measuring 8-1/4″ x 4-1/4″ I mounted a panel punched with the Martha Stewart Fans and Flourishes border punch to get the length that I needed for the focal panel.  To give the die cut word a little bit of dimension against the cream I cut one in Aqua Mist and one in cream (darkened up with Antique Linen Distress Ink) and stacked them together with the bottom one slightly offset – that gives a little bit of shadow.
I finished up with a bow and some pearls! :-)

Stamps:  Quietfire Design Thanks Die
Craft Paper
:  Neenah Classic Crest – Natural White – 80lb smooth, Papertrey Ink Aqua Mist
Ink:  None
Accessories: Martha Stewart Fans and Flourishes Border Punch, Recollections Pearls, May Arts Ribbon

So I hinted around yesterday that I’ll be starting a giveaway tomorrow.  You said you wanted to see some ideas of what to do with my new dies.  Well, this is my most favorite gift item, as of late,  and is made with my new Swirl Bliss Pocket die.  When you see how easy it is to make . . . well, I can’t wait to see what you think.   At any rate, I made this gift item in duplicate and one of the two are being given away here.  More details coming tomorrow :-)

    Hello Becca,
    This is fabulous. I’m into this size long card at the moment, don’t know why when I’ve always done larger cards.

    Good morning Becca,
    I do like your dinky cards that you make and i can see why you love this “thanks” die as it is so clean but fluid and you can feel yourself writing just in this way, i just wish i could write big enough for it to be seen to make into a die in the first place. You are hinting about your swirl dies which i feel in love with the minute i seen them on your blog and ordered them up as i just think they are the most exquisite and stunning, versatile dies that i have purchased in a long time. Can’t wait to see what tomorrows project is though that i can make with them.
    With love and crafty hugs across the ocean to you flower,
