Today I want to show you how to make fun layers for a thank you card. We’re also saying good-bye to Lovely as a Tree. Sometimes it is hard to say good-bye!  Usually I am excited when stamp sets retire, because that means there are new ones coming……but, this one is a bit hard!  Did you know that this stamp set was originally introduced in 2001?  It has been in the catalog for 18 Years!!!!  It’s definitely become an OLD FRIEND! So, let’s create a special thank you card in its’ honor and I’ll show you how to make fun layers too. You’ll be able to create similar fun layers with other stamp sets you own too.


How to Make Fun Layers for a Thank You Card Video

Let’s go out with a bang with this fun “kinda a technique” card.  You can’t really tell in the picture that the WHITE is embossed.  Today’s video show’s you how to heat emboss and also how to have the multiple colors on the image and cardstock.

Saying Good-Bye to Lovely as a Tree and Using Fun Layers in the Process


Make sure to watch the video to see where my thank you card idea came from!!!!

Card Recipe:

  • Soft Suede:  11″ x 4 1/4″
  • Crumb Cake:  4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″
  • Shaded Spruce:  4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″
  • Whisper White:  4 3/4″ x 4 1/4″


Same card recipe as above, just used Night of Navy and Balmy Blue instead of Crumb Cake and Soft Suede.
