When it comes to saying thank you nothing says it better than a handmade card and of course Stampin' Up! have bundles of products that make it so easy for doing just that!
Keeping it simple, I have used just 4 colours to create a monochrome style look.
Very Vanilla cardstock
Pink Pirouette cardstock and colouring
Basic Black cardstock, stamping and doodling
Silver cardstock and rhinestone jewels
This card measures 4, 1/8" wide by 5, 1/2" tall.
The Basic Black mat layer measures 4" x 5, 5/8"
The Very Vanilla mat layer on the front and inside the card measures 3, 7/8" x 5, 3/4"
I have used the new Stampin' Blends to add colour to the flowers. Rather than colouring in neatly, I have just added a wash of colour and some darker colour for the flower centres. Sometimes colouring outside the lines it's okay, it just depends on the look that you want to achieve.
Although this card looks quite flat I have added some dimension by stamping a separate flower, cutting it out with scissors and attaching with a foam pad. The leaf attached underneath is cut using the new 'Leaf Punch' and although it isn't clear in the photo I have used Silver Foil Card to add some shine.
To add some sparkle I have added some rhinestone jewels to the centre of the attached flower and some others at random in the Vanilla space.
The line around the edges of the card is drawn freestyle with a Basic Black Stampin' Marker and I think it lift's the image off the page better than keeping it plain.
To finish off this project I have stamped and coloured a flower inside the card and also on the envelope.
The 'I am Thankful For You' sentiment comes from the 'Painted Harvest' stamp set and the flower comes from the new 'Colour Me Happy' stamp set.
Hope you're all well! It's the school holidays for me now which means lots of quality time with my little girl, husband and mum, a holiday, mine and my hubbys birthday and hopefully some crafting marathons too!
We're in the final week of the Bonus Days promotion which I know quite a few of you have benefitted from already! For those of you that haven't placed your orders yet I will be placing a final order on Saturday evening this week!
I always like to include a little thank you card with peoples orders when i send them out and this month I have used the Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack as the main event!
They are a set of co-ordinating 6"x6" double sided papers made up of pretty scenes, textures and printed patterns. When i first saw them in the catalogue I wasn't sure but now I've used them I'm a fan!
Here are the cards...
I have used one of each of the Scenery sided papers along with the Notecards and Envelopes in Whisper White.
I have stamped using Versa Mark and heat-embossed with Copper embossing powder.
For an embellishment I have used a mixture of washi-tape, twine and lace trim.
And to avoid the naked envelope I have added a sentiment to the front and some of the same DSP to the fold over!
Thanks for reading!
Have a good week everyone!
