I have a couple of cards to share today, and by coincidence, they're both "thank you" cards. The first one I had in mind as one way to again say thanks for making my birthday pretty darn awesome! I saw the sketch over at WPlus9's Get Sketchy Challenge, and thought I'd see what I could come up with.
Decided to create my own background for this one. I rather like how it turned out:
Started with my Michaels white base, and stamped WPlus9's Fresh Cut Florals in Jeni Bowlin ink, with a dot of gold for the centers. I heat embossed WPlus9's "thanks" in gold, and used an MFT oval die. I didn't have a gold paper that tripped my trigger, and you know I like matchy-matchy things, so I smeared embossing ink, added the same gold powder, and cut a strip and a larger oval. A scrap of lovely navy for the bottom and done. This makes me smile, and I hope it does you too.
The next thank you card was inspired by the sketch over at CTS. Went pretty CAS with some bright pops of color.
I made several of these, and they didn't take very long to do. The dies are PPP for the square, and MFT for the fishtail die. I printed the 'thank you' in bright happy colors and added a variety of enamel dots in more fun colors. A bit of AC red twine to mimic the circles in the sketch. The white is, as always, Michaels, and the black is a scrap. So. I really must finish getting the soup made for my friend, Mary, so will close for today. Happy dances everyone, and thanks once more for all the delightful birthday wishes.
