Thanks, You Have a Heart of Gold {CTD482}

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday!

It’s time for a new Color Throwdown Challenge, and this week, Barbara has challenged us to use pink, gray and kraft! SO gorgeous!


I had SO much fun creating this card! I began with a panel of Smooth White Card Stock cut using the A2 Rectangle STAX 2 Die-namics, and I sponged on Tattered Rose Distress Oxide Ink, Antique Linen Distress Oxide Ink and Hickory Smoke Distress Oxide Ink (this is one of my favorite of the new colors)! I then used the Framework Stencil and spread on Texture Paste with a Palette Knife. I carefully removed the stencil and let the Texture Paste dry overnight. I LOVE LOVE LOVE how it came out!

I really wanted the background to take center stage on my card, so I kept the rest of the elements soft. I cut a panel of Translucent Vellum using the Circle STAX 2 Die-namics, trimmed off one side, and then added it to the card. I cut “Thanks” four times from Smooth White Card Stock using the Twice The Thanks Die-namics, and then layered them together and added them on top of the vellum circle. I then cut a panel of Cement Gray Prestige Card Stock using the Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips Die-namics, and stamped “YOU HAVE A HEART OF GOLD” from Kind Thanks using Versamark Ink. I heat embossed the sentiment using White Detail Embossing Powder, and then finished off the card with a trio of white enamel dots.
