Would you like to experiment with a design like this? You'll find a supply list below, including a link to the stencil I used from A Colorful Life Designs. Follow the link and use discount code ChrisFan10 to save 10% on your entire order! (Master Creator Bundles are excluded as they already have a 20% discount built in.)

Let’s get started:

Card Base: 5.5 x 8.5, scored and folded at 4.25

Card Face: 5.25 x 4

Card Face:

  • I attached the stencil to the card face with Mint Tape and applied a soft yellow ink across the entire surface.

  • I put the card face into my stamp positioner and positioned the 3 stamps so they were evenly spaced across the card face.,

  • I stamped repeatedly using black Memento ink until I had the desired level of intensity.


  • I had the small “thanks” in my Ready to Go binder *** - but in white. I pressed the top of the word into my Versamark pad, sprinkled it with black embossing powder and set this with my heat gun.

*** see Ready to Go binder under the Techniques tab in the header to learn how I use this binder to save both time and money.


  • I glued the card face to the card base.

  • I glued the sentiment to the card face as shown.

Final Thoughts

The soft yellow on cream gives a lovely tone-on-tone look, providing a great backdrop for the strong black silhouettes and sentiment.
