Scottie THANK YOU Cards

Hello, Crafty Friends!! It’s Design Team Member, Mitsyana, back to bring you these quick and easy (and  SUPER CUTE) Scottie Thank You Cards.

In light of current events, sitting her crafting during Hurricane Harvey, I am compelled to make Thank you cards. It’s always a good thing to tell people just how grateful you are. Even a little gratitude goes a long way!

These Scottie Thank You(s) come together so quickly that I was able to make them in different colors! I like being able to have an arsenal of cards at my disposal at any given moment!

To make these I used Lori Whitlock’s A2 Cutout Scottie Dog file. (here in the Silhouette Store)

I opened the file using my Sizzix ecal software and grouped the pieces by color for easier cutting. It helps with out having to reload the mat for each color used. And as long as all the pieces fit on my mat I can cut them all at once.

I decided not to use the pre-scored card that came included because I wanted to change the direction the flap opened. So, I removed it off of my virtual cutting mat.

The card front is sized to a standard A2 card so me changing the direction of the card fold will not affect the overall look or assembly of the card whatsoever.

I cut all my paper using my Sizzix eclips machine. Then used my Xyron Mega Runner to layer and adhere the pieces together.

I used a glue pen to attach Scottie’s little bow then added highlights to it using a white gel pen.

I used a fine-tipped black ink pen to draw stitch lines around the perimeter of the stamp-shaped card mat.

I pieced the tiny flag sentiment together then added stitch lines along that as well.

Once the card front was pieced together I used my Mega Runner to attach it to my card base. This time the card flaps from top to bottom instead of side to side.

As a last minute touch, I added a little glitter enamel dot to the center of Scottie’s bow for a little bling.

Here is the finished card…

And it was so super easy to make that I decided to make it in other colors as well!

It looks great in brown!

And it’s absolutely fabulous in teal!!

These are so much fun to make!

I think I need to make much more… I have many people I want to send thanks to but this is a great start!

Hope you enjoyed my project for today!

“Thanks” for stopping by!!

These are very sweet – I have a Scottie dog by Lori – not sure if it is the same – and these would definitely work for us since we are the Scotties! Richard & Gail Scott – thanks for sharing your work
