Gratitude Cards | Mari Clarke November 16, 2018 00:00

Welcome to the JustNick blog today!  It's team member Mari Clarke here, and today I am sharing some gratitude cards that I created with some of the amazing designs from the JustNick shop! I will be using the Rose Cluster cut file and the Rustic Floral Frame 2 cut file.

I created these two oversized cards with the cut files.  I created custom envelopes to go along with the cards as well, using some thin patterned paper.

For this first card, I cut the Rose Cluster cut file from some textured white card stock.  I sprayed the cut file with some gold mist and then adhered it to some vellum.  I attached the piece to a piece of water color paper that I had water colored with some purple and teal paint.  To finish the card, I added the sentiment "thankful" which I cut from the Card Sentiments 4 cut file.  Then I  added a few Nuvo Drops in gold.

For the second card, I cut the Rustic Floral Frame 2 design from some textured white card stock.  I added some Distress Oxide Inks to the cut file for a fall theme.  I spritzed some gold mist onto the cut file as well for some added interest.  I dry embossed a piece of vellum with an argyle pattern and added some gold ink.  I attached the vellum to a Neenah Desert Storm card base and then added the frame onto that with some foam adhesive.  I cut the sentiment "blessed" from the Card Sentiments 4 cut file and added that with foam adhesive as well.

I love creating cards with cut files; it is easy to do when you have these amazing designs to work with!  Be sure to head over to the JustNick shop and check out all of the wonderful designs!
