Simon Says Stamp - LATTICE TILE Thank You Card

Red embossed Christmas Card with All The Joy sentiment.

Hello Lovelies! You can never have too many Thank You cards, so I'm adding to the stash today with a sweetly stenciled shaker!

I kept it mostly Spring with a soft color palette for the ink-blending, layered on some Crackle Paste to give it a little twist and tried out using clay shaker bits for the first time, and had to ask myself "what took so long?" !

APPRECIATE YOU CARD - Stenciled Ink-Blending, Crackle Paste, Creating a Shaker

Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"

Red pink and purple All the Joy Christmas card with birds and holly leaves



Pawsitively Saturated Ink Pads - Guava, Lilac, Royal, Surf, Raindrop, Celery




  1. Adhere a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of white cardstock or watercolor cardstock to a Stamp and Stencil Mat

  2. Secure the Lattice Tile Stencil over the cardstock

  3. Use large blending brushes to ink-blend color onto the cardstock as shown in the following order: Guava, Lilac, Royal, Surf, Raindrop, Celery



  1. Use a palette knife to apply Crackle Paste through the openings in the stencil.

  2. Try to spread it quickly and evenly

  3. Remove the stencil immediately and wash.

  4. Set aside the stenciled panel to dry.


  1. Once dry, use the Appreciate You Outline Die to create the shaker opening on the stenciled panel. Also die-cut the Whirl Blossom and Appreciate You words out of white cardstock.

  2. Trim the stenciled panel and an acrylic sheet to 5 1/4"x 4". Apply double-sided tape to the acrylic sheet.

  3. Adhere the acrylic sheet to the back of the stenciled panel

  4. Apply foam tape around the opening in the stencil; focus on creating a "wall" to hold the shaker bits in place.

  5. Place the Pastel Swirls shaker pieces into the center of the front of a card base. Adhere the stenciled panel with the newly created shaker window, over the shaker bits.


  1.  Embellish by adhering the sentiment and flower die-cuts

  2. Adhere more shaker pieces to the card front to finish.


I can't believe that it was easy to get clean lines using such a delicate stencil with all that ink-blending and a layer of crackle paste. Love that aged effect it reminds me of that well-loved look you can get with some old dishes.

I'm glad that I'm no longer scared of making shaker cards!

The Whirl flower die-cut fits in so well here and these clay bits have NOT seen the last of me!

All done, and as I always say, "all pretty"!

The English teacher in me would have to put l or we on the card with the appreciate you sentiment but overall, I love your card! I love how fun it is.


I absolutely love your card. The crackle paste really does add a unique twist.
