*****Click here, Lesley's Project Pg & Online Store to purchase the supplies used on this card.  Remember to use the Host Code (found on the right side bar) for orders $60 or greater and I will send you a little thank you gift in the mail with your thank you card the following month.

Assembly & Trix:

*  Apply the shades of blue inks to the Basic White CS layer using Blending Brushes.  ***Trix, blend from lightest to dark, I used Pool Party on the left side of the card, followed by Coastal Cabana and ended with Balmy Blue on the right side of the card.  I tried to create three strips of colour and then blended them together at the edges.

*  Stamp the puffin with Memento Black ink and fussy cut out.

*  Colour the puffin with Stampin' Blends Markers.

*  Stamp the 'thank you' sentiment using VersaMark ink and emboss with White Embossing Powder.

*  Cut the sentiment into separate words.

*  Adhere the Basic White CS layer to the Coastal Cabana CS layer with Multipurpose Liquid Glue (glue)

*  Adhere the card front to the card base with glue.

*  Decide on the placement of the puffin and the words.  ***Trix, I wanted it to look like the puffin was shouting thank you in all directions, and I just preferred the look of the sentiment cut apart and on an angle.

*  Adhere the puffin and the "thank" with Stampin' Dimensionals and glue the word "you" just to create a bit of dimension.

*  Embellish with sequins as desired.

Enjoy and have a super day!
