How To Make a Glowing Gratitude Card

Today’s project is a greeting card that glows with gratitude. The layer of cardstock and fussy cut flowers are topped with Rinea Foiled Paper. The result feels like a walk down a garden path.
For this card I die-cut scalloped circles and feathers from cardstock. The bird is die-cut from Rinea Silver/Silver Starstruck Foiled Paper. The ornate circle frame is die-cut from Rinea Copper/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper. The sentiment is die-cut from Rinea Blush/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper.
The roses and leaves are fussy cut from patterned paper. It’s a time consuming process, but sure looks great layered. The key is not to worry about the details. If you cut a little too much off, ink the edges with a dark neutral and it’s all good.
The first layer of the card is a circle cut from Rinea Silver/Silver StarstruckFoiled Paper with punched edges.
That layer is topped with cardstock circles separated by foam tape. I slipped the fussy cut flowers between the circles with more foam tape.
Finally the die-cut bird, feather, frame, and sentiment are arranged with the help of more foam tape. Two feathers were a little too much. I had to save one for another project. The remaining die-cuts in spring shades express “Thanks” with class and garden charm.
If you haven’t tried Rinea Foiled Paper with dies grab a Variety Pack and get started. Kitty says “What are you waiting for?”
