Dandy Laser Cut Paper Thank you cards

Today I wanted to share with you a sneak peak of the soon to be released Dandy laser cut papers from the upcoming Jan to Jun mini Catalogue.

These laser cut papers have a lovely variety of imagery and useful backgrounds. I wanted to show how versatile and easy the stunning background elements were and how you could make quick and simple cards without the need to use a die cutting machine!

For each card I stepped up the basic card to showcase the papers with products I already had in my stash. With these papers you really can make a card in just a few minutes.

Simple Dandy Thank You Card

For my first card I just used a piece of Granny Apple Green cardstock to make those elegant leaf shapes really pop.

The pretty little dragonfly and sentiment are from another new Stamp set from the same Dandy Garden Suite.

The sentiment is stamped in Versamark Ink onto a scrap of Granny Apple Green card stock and then heat embossed using White Stampin’ Emboss powder.

The Dragonfly has been stamped on Vellum in Black Stazon and then yes you’ve guessed it! I punched it out using the NEW Dragonflies Punch. Woo Hoo! I do love a coordinating punch. So quick and easy to use. I used a Bermuda Bay Blend to colour the back of the image before adding it to the card with glue.

To finish I added some white elements from the All the Trimming Embellishments.

Stepped up Dandy Thank You Card

For my next card I used exactly the same layout as the simple card, but this time I slipped a piece of Rainbow Glimmer paper behind the laser cut paper to really make it sparkle.

The other change I made was to add some Highland Heater blend to the back of the dragonfly image and of course some Wink of Stella to the front to really make it sparkle!

Blending Brush Dandy Thank You Card

For the adorable flower head design in the laser cut papers I just had to grab my brand NEW Blending Brushes and made a subtle scenery background. How cute does this look?

Keeping the same layout, this time I switched the cardstock colours around to let the Shimmery white cardstock take centre stage along with the laser cut papers.

I also switched out the stamped and punched dragon flies for a laser cut Dragonfly which I coloured with Blends and added some sparkle with my go to Wink of Stella pen. Pretty with that subtle colouring eh?

Silhouette Dandy Thank You Card

For my last card and the one I showed you at the top of this blog I wanted to show how easy it was to add colour to these laser cut papers.

This time I used one of our sponge brayers to add some Tuxedo Black Memento Ink over the dragonflies. TIP: build the colour up slowly to avoid and streaks, but its really easy!

Once again same layout switched up to let the Rainbow glimmer paper make the statement behind the blackened Laser cut papers. To finish I added another laser cut dragonfly coloured with Blends and Silver embossing powder.

All the measurements can be found at the top of the post.
