What kind of a thank you card do you make for someone who has sent an amazing gift and loves tigers? You make them a four-panel card that can act as a candle shade or screen.
Tonic Studios Tropical Rainforest silhouette die set was a perfect match for the card that cats as something more than a card. I had seen on Pinterest a lantern made from some of the Tonic Studios other forest silhouette dies sets and knew from my experience of making a house luminary Christmas card, that this die set would be easy to make a four-panel card/candle shade.
I cut four vellum panels and then using three shades of green cardstock and a sheet of brown, I cut the silhouette frames using the lightest shades for the front panels and the darkest as the panels at the back. I cut the panel with the tiger and toucan bird from white scrap cardstock and colored with markers. Next, I fussy cut them and glued in place on their panel. I also cut and colored a butterfly from white cardstock scrap.
The vellum panels were laid out in a row and taped together using clear removable tape on the back side of the vellum. Next the silhouette panels were glued on to the vellum.
As a finishing touch, I die cut the words “Thank You” to glue to card. Next, I pieced together from words in the same Moonstone word die set the name of the recipient. The card fits into a mini slim envelope.
