All Occasion Cattail Thank You Card

Using the Fuse Creativity System® takes all the fuss out of making elegant all-occasion greeting cards.

This card comes together beautifully in just a matter of minutes with minimal supplies. First you’ll need to cut cardstock for your card base. Cut your brown cardstock to 7” x 10”. Fold in half and crease the fold. Cut a piece of patterned paper to 4 ½” x 6 ½”. Adhere, centered, to the front of the card base.

inking your die

Layer your Scalloped Oval Die-Cut with your Cattail embellishment. Place in the orange carrier and ink with brown ink. Remove from orange carrier and add a 4 ½” square piece of thin chipboard on top. Cover with the Medium Cutting Plate and crank the stack through your Fuse.

add shimmer to chipboard and cut out butterflies

Then, embellish the letter pressed chipboard with a layer of gold shimmer mist. Allow to dry. Layer with another layer of light rose shimmer mist. (Note: Chipboard absorbs the mist much more than patterned paper does, so you’ll want to use a generous amount of mist.)

Add a few more embellishments

Punch a few butterflies from kraft paper using the Medium Delicate Butterfly Lever Punch and adhere only the body allowing the wings to bend upward.
