ID: MC May/18 - Digi Iris Thank You - Give Thanks card
size: 5"w x 7"H

Created: May 12, 2018

My turn on the Quietfire Digital Blog today and Suzanne came out with a Spring Flower Dingbat font which I love... 

The font works great in emails, Word, Excel etc. I used it in my SCAL (Sure Cuts A Lot) 

I'm using a quote stamp on the inside from Quietfire Design 

("Give Thanks" 2pce set); 

These are the electronic cut files I'm using from Suzanne available on Silhouette. Click image to purchase.



Opened SCAL software, activated the font key and typed the letter "k". resizing it to approx 6.25"h.

Used a basic rectangle shape and increased it to 7"h x 8"w. Placed the iris overlapping the right edge and having an overall width of 10". Copied and pasted a 2nd Iris for later. Grouped the 1st Iris with the rectangle and then welded them together.

If you are using a 12 x 12 cardstock everything can go on one page as the image. I used an 8.5 x 11" white cardstock so had to add a page with my other details.

Cut the card/Iris. Scored and folded to make it a 5 x 7" card. Embossed the tile background (Elizabeth Craft Designs "Trendy Tiles") only on the front of the card.

Electronically cut that 2nd Iris and the Thank You which I had sized to approx 4"w from white cardstock. Inked the word with some Distress "Dusty Concord" and embossed with Emerald Creek "Mardi Gras" embossing powder. Has a nice glittery sheen to it. Colored the Iris with a few shades of green both direct to paper and sponging to give variations in the colors. The flower I inked with "Mustard Seed" near the base of the flower and then with the Concord on the rest of the flower.

Adhered the flower and the word to the front of the card.


On the inside: 

Stamped the quote using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed.
