Brights Layered Letters Alphabet Thank You Cards

by Joanne James25. July 2015 09:00

I have a quick card to share today that is set to brighten the days of those of you in the UK suffering from winds and rain (as I sit here in my deckchair enjoying the sunshine - sorry, enough about me!!!) - perhaps a rainbow is the order of the day:

This is a super clean-and-simple rainbow thank you notelet; I made a whole batch of these, along with co-ordinating tags, to pop in with my last batch of customer orders. I used Stampin' Up!'s ready folded notelets and envelopes for speed and used only one stamp set: The Layered Letters Alphabet. Great for stamping big words and the set includes two handy background stamps that you can use to add colour behind each letter to add the effect of another layer, whilst sticking to just one. In order to get my rainbow background, I had to clean the stamp each time, so I set up a mini production line and stamped the word on each notelet first, then all the red panels, all the orange panels, and so on until each of the colours were stamped. This meant the whole lot really took no time at all - here's a 'work in progress' shot of my desk:

You could use the same idea for any word with whatever combination of ink colours you have to hand - why don't you give it a go? I am linking my card today with the lovely ladies over at Addicted To Stamps - I have played along with them for a while and their theme this week is CAS - perfect!

I'll be back tomorrow with a new challenge over at The Paper Players; make sure you tune in, the lovely Sandy is hosting and you are not going to want to miss it! Until then, happy stampin'!
