Hey everyone Ken here with Ken's Kreations.
I have been so excited to show you my card that I made for my Assistant Manager at my bank. He has really been an amazing co-manager with me, so I wanted to show my appreciation in a card. Now as you know, masculine cards can be difficult. However I was really happy with the way this thank you card turned out.
I started this card with the Wonderful Paper Packet and cut the Passport card stock at 5X7 and the blue polka dot at 4X6. At the bottom of the Blue polka dot pattern paper I wrapped Forest Green Twine along the bottom of the card. I affixed the twine to the card using Mini Glue Dots.
Then I could concentrate on the stamps. I started with the camper which I found on the Close To My Heart Camper Crazy stamp set. I stamped the outline of the camper in the Close To My Heart Black Ink. Then I got to do something that I have not done in years.....COLOR! I used the following ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Markers, Pastel Green, Leaf Green, Cerulean Blue Light, Grey 7, Golden Yellow, Carmine and Black. Then I could focus on some more stamps on the Camper Crazy stamp set. I used the Tiny trees on this set behind the colorful camper in both Sweet Leaf Ink and Topiary Ink. Now I can focus on the elements. For the clouds and Sunshine I used the Rain of Shine stamp set. For the clouds I used the Crystal Blue Ink. Once everything was stamped and dry I was able to use my Brother Scan N Cut to cut out all the stamps. I could than use the Foam Tape to raise the camper and blue clouds up from the back of the card. The last thing I needed to do was pick out the best sentiment for the card. Since this was a Thank You card for my Assistant Manager, I thought the sentiment off the Camper Crazy stamp set was perfect. I used the Gypsy Ink for the sentiment.
