An adorable monster makes a great thank you card, I think. LOL! Not only did I want to make it fun, but also unique. So I decided to “Wear Your Adhesive on the Outside” with E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser and Metallic Transfer Foil.
Hello everyone, Yvonne here sharing a fun CAS (Clean and Simple) thank you card embellished with fun patterned stripes made with our E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser along with the use of some gold and silver foil from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit. You can also find gold and silver foils in the Metallic Transfer Foil Holographic set.
Making a Monster of a Card
Trim a piece of white cardstock to a rectangle shape to create a card panel. Next, stamp a sentiment with black ink.
Now for the fun! Let’s make the background by first running a line across the card panel using the E-Z Dots® Permanent Refillable Dispenser.
Take the silver foil sheets from the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit or Metallic Transfer Foil and place over the adhesive line. Gently rub and peel away the foil to reveal a fun dotted line pattern. Repeat this step with gold foil. Make sure you do one line at a time. Apply as many times until you get your desired look. And check this out – no expensive machine needed!
I love the look of the dotted pattern and bonus: FOILED! Fun to do and so easy to create, and there’s no machine needed with the foil!
To finish off, adhere the card panel to a blue card base with the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser. Stamp and color the monster images, then die cut. Adhere the monsters to the card front using 3D Foam Squares.
Note: I stacked two 3D Foam Squares on the back of the right and left monster to give them an extra boost of dimension!
