Hello, friends! This is Design Team member Sandhya Iyer and I am sharing a thank you card and Artist Trading Card (ATC) duo. For my focal point, I chose the Rose Leaves Contour Layers die set. I used the Thank You Foil Greetings black circle tabs for the sentiment.

I started by die-cutting the Rose Leaves Contour Layers out of watercolor cardstock. Next, I pulled out Distress Oxide inks in varying shades of green and used a blending brush to ink the leafy layers. For the delicate and more detailed pieces, I leave them attached to the area around them after die-cutting and ink them before popping them out.

Next, I smooshed some green and pink ink on my craft mat and inked a watercolor panel. I layered on Antique Linen Distress ink over that for a vintage look. Then I added more interest and texture to the background using pages from an old book, washi tape, and snow gauze.

I adhered the larger leaf to the panel and added the thank you sentiment tab. Then I added a generous splatter of black ink. Finally, I added a black mat to the panel and attached it to a kraft card base.

I repeated the same process with tiny variations to create my ATC. Instead of the watercolor panel, I picked a small tag from my stash and inked it with Distress ink.

As this is a mini tag, I added some twine for added interest and assembled the focal cluster with the mixed media tag, the inked die-cut leaves, and the sentiment tab.

This brings us to the end of today’s post. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have fun crafting today!
