Thank You Card
First Cut

Thank You Card

Today I have a simple thank you card to share along with some of the ways I use my shapes to add dimension and texture to my projects.

Here’s a closer look at the details…

I cut the thin chevron out of cardstock, the larger one in the middle using the new stamping starter kit, and then usedΒ this techniqueΒ to create stitch lines with that same chevron shape! I love the different textures and added interest the different techniques give to my card! {quick sidenote, my new bff for small intricate sentiments is the printable foil. It works AWESOME!}

What are some tricks you have for getting texture and dimension on your projects?

thank you

  1. Beautiful technique! Thanks for sharing! I recently bought the foil paper to make some favor tags for my hubby’s 40th birthday using the “print & cut” feature but unfortunately I had a very hard time feeding the paper to both my printers. Have you experienced that issue? Do you have any tips or tricks on how to feed the paper easily?

    1. I had the same problem with feeding the foil paper into the printer. I am very interested in hearing any tips or suggestions about how to work with the foil paper…

    2. Hi Monica and Susy, I’m sorry to hear! I haven’t experienced this before so I don’t personally have any tricks to share, but if you contact our customer support team they may be able to provide you with more information. You may email them at

    πŸ™‚ The whole vibe of this card is very on trend right now and I like everything about it!
    Thanks for the inspiration- it’s not always easy to incorporate so many techniques without it looking over the top.

  3. Love the simplicity look and feel of this card and love the colors. Thanks for the inspiration. I’m in the middle of a card swap, and I think I’ll use this to as a sketch to follow! (I still have the old Silhouette SD so I’m limited when it comes to the ‘fun stuff’)

    1. The silhouette software is the same no matter which machine you use. The cameo has a larger mat, which is nice for scrapping. You can do all of this on your sd…have fun…

  4. What did you use to stitch? Regular thread or special thread?

    1. I used a silver thread to coordinate with the silver foil title πŸ™‚

  5. This is beautiful! What font is the “Thank You” in?

    1. Thank you Christine! The ‘thank you’ is a shape from the Silhouette online store. You can find the link to the shape at the bottom of the post πŸ™‚

    2. Thanks! Sorry if the link was already there, I didn’t see it!

    3. No worries πŸ™‚ There was a shape bundle link, but it expired so I updated it when I got your comment.

      Have a great weekend!

  6. I love this card so much. You were right, the printable foil works wonderful for intricate sentiments. I made the same card last night and the foil worked beautifully. Here is a link if you would like to see it. It look almost identical to yours:

    Thank you for all the inspiration. I don’t know what I would do without this blog!


    1. Thanks for sharing Andrea! I like the colors you chose… feels like fall! πŸ™‚
