P layful thank you card using Stampin' Up! products.
Cut cardstock and designer paper pieces to the following sizes using a Paper Trimmer:
- card from Pool Party Cardstock at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored at 5-1/2"
- 4" x 5-1/4" from Just Jade Cardstock
- 1-3/4" x 4" of seaweed fronds on light blue background design from Whale Of A Time 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper, cut so the seaweed fronds are vertical on the horizontal strip
- 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" from Just Jade Cardstock
- 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" from Pool Party Cardstock
- 1-1/2" x 2" from Just Jade Cardstock
- 2" x 3-3/4" from Pretty Peacock Cardstock
- 1" x 4" from Pretty Peacock Cardstock
Insert the 4" x 5-1/4" Just Jade rectangle into the Seabed 3D Embossing Folder so the design will be vertical on the vertical rectangle. Use the line drawn on the front of the embossing folder to help line the cardstock up straight. Place the folder with the paper inside on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine platform and run through the machine.
Adhere the strip of Whale Of A Time 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper to the thin strip of Pretty Peacock Cardstock so about 1/8" of Pretty Peacock shows along the bottom edge.
Adhere the matted designer paper strip to the bottom of the dry embossed Just Jade rectangle so about 3/8" of Just Jade shows along the bottom.
Adhere the Just Jade rectangle with designer paper strip attached to the front of the tent-fold Pool Party card.
Pick out the seaweed fronds die from the Smooth Sailing Dies. Put it on top of the large Pretty Peacock rectangle on a platform on your Stampin' Cut & Emboss Machine. Run through the tool. Use the Take Your Pick Die Brush Tip and Take Your Pick to remove the pieces.
Use the Fine-Tip Glue Pen or Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the seaweed fronds cut out to the card front so it overlaps the top of the seaweed designer paper strip on the left side.
As you are ready to stamp using the Whale Done Set, place the cardstock on the Stampin' Pierce Mat. Using the mat will help you get a cleaner image each time you stamp.
Mount the "thanks a ton" sentiment from the Whale Done Set on Block G. Ink it up with the Just Jade Ink Pad. Stamp it near the bottom of one end of the Pool Party strip. Leave room to punch it out.
Unlock the 2" Circle Punch. Hold it upside down so you can see the punching area. Slide the stamped sentiment into the punch and get it centered in the punching area side to side near the bottom of the circle. Punch.
Unlock the 2-1/4" Circle Punch. Slide the 2-1/2" x 3-1/2" strip of Just Jade Cardstock into the punch. Punch.
Adhere the sentiment circle punch out to the Just Jade circle punch out so they are slightly offset with the sentiment circle punch out being higher and more to the right.
Adhere the layered circles to the front of the card so they cover the bottom of the seaweed fronds cut out on the left side of the seaweed fronds designer paper.
Mount the sea turtle image from the Whale Done Set on Block B. Ink it up with the Pretty Peacock Ink Pad. Stamp it in the center of the small, remaining piece of Just Jade Cardstock.
Use Paper Snips to cut out the sea turtle image by hand.
Use the Fine-Tip Glue Pen or Multipurpose Liquid Glue to adhere the turtle cut out to the front of the card so it overlaps the upper left side of the Pool Party sentiment circle.
Cut a 8" piece of the Pool Party 3/8" Sheer Ribbon.
Fold the ribbon in half. Tie a half knot in the center of the folded ribbon. Trim the ends.
Use a Mini Glue Dot to adhere the ribbon knot to the front of the card at a slight angle near the bottom right side of the layered circles.
Use the mini spatula on the Take Your Pick to carefully peel up 2 small and 1 large Coastal Cabana rhinestones from a sheet of Holiday Rhinestone Basic Jewels making sure that you get the adhesive backings as well. Adhere them to the front of card as bubbles coming from the sea turtles mouth.
