Cistus Thanks

I had created ten masculine thank you card for Meals on Wheels and needed to create ten cards for women. I decided to use flower dies for these cards and was very happy with the way they turned out.


This first card uses the beautiful Altenew Cistus layering die. I know there are yellow cistus flower, but I didn't see any light orange, but I'm really happy with the way they turned out. I colored each layer with Distress Oxide Inks. However, the background of the flower center was colored with a Copic Marker. Gold Stickles was added to the flower stamens. Each layer was adhered together with liquid glue.


To assemble the card a rectangle was cut using the Memory Box Matinee die. It was adhered to a top folding A2 cardbase with Simon Says Stamp Big Mama Foam Tape. The leaves were adhered in place with liquid glue. The flowers were adhered with liquid glue and just a little foam tape on the right side of the top flower to keep it level with other side of the flower resting on the bottom flower.


Since I had used Gold Stickles on the flower centers I decided to use gold glitter cardstock for the sentiment. It was adhered in place with liquid glue.
