Splattered Thank You

My daughter needs a few thank you cards for her birthday, so I decided to try something new.
This is one of those times when it goes a lot better in your head than on the paper!!
Not happy with the results, but decided to share anyway.
Maybe someone has some helpful hints to share?!

I decided to join to CAS challenges....

Here's my card!


Ok, so I decided to try my hand and a cut-away card, using this heart border die (sorry I don't know who made the die!) After totally scrapping the first two tries, this is what I ended up with.  I've not done the splatter technique to often.  I've learned I need a lot bigger work space when I splatter!!  Very messy!!!

 Needless to say, this is the only thank you card like this.  I will be making more but not like this!
I had lots of trouble adhering the heart border since it is so delicate.  If anyone has suggestions, please comment!!

Thanks for stopping by today!!
God bless!!

  1. Love the inlaod hearts and the design is precious! Thanks for joining us at CASology! This is truly a special card!!!

  2. I find red mist REALLY hard to splatter without making a mess! I happen to love how this turned out, even though it gave you fits :) As for the intricate die, I have two ideas - a mini-Xyron sticker maker (Michaels has them for about $10, I think, and if you use them just for stuff like this it's not too expensive an option). Or, a 2-way glue pen (Zig makes a blue one, or there's a Quickie Glue Pen by Sakura). They both have a small nib so only a smidge of glue comes out at a time, and they hold card stock really well.

    1. Thanks Jessi! I did use a Quickie Glue pen on it, but it didn't hold very well. Usually I have good luck with the Quickie pen, but it was popping off the paper the next morning. Will need to try the Xyron if there is a next time!

  3. Oh, so fun! Wonderful take on the sketch!


Thank you for your comments, they warm my heart!
