November’s Blog Hop Project
For our project this month we are continuing the theme of Customer “Thank You” Cards. I feel that it is incredibly important to show your gratitude and appreciation for each order that my customers places with me. They have actually chosen to shop with me. Consequently there will always be a hand made “thank you” card from me in their bag when I deliver their order.
My card design is a very simple, yet eye-catching layout. It has the added bonus of using up any oddments of Designer Series Papers that you may have – and who doesn’t have those after a major project is finished.
Using standard card bases of Night of Navy and Highland Heather I cut matching colour ways of the gorgeous Feels like Frost Designer Series paper to match the fronts, but 1cm smaller in size, to create a boarder.
I then took the Layering Ovals Dies and cut a fluted oval from the base card and a smaller plain oval from the Designer Series Paper. I chose where on the paper to cut carefully. Going for the lightest coloured background on offer, as I was going to stamp my sentiment there, and wanted it to show up!!
Once I had my two oval pieces cut, I stamped my sentiment onto the DSP in matching ink to the base card and stuck it back onto the fluted oval. Next, I stuck the larger piece of DSP onto the card base I then placed the oval sandwich I had created back over the hole, ensuring the picture matched.
It really was that simple.
An Alternative Idea
On the card above I followed the same method as before, except that I added another step. I cut the DSP into four equal width strips and stuck them onto a mat of matching card stock. Then I stuck this to a Very Vanilla standard card base, which made the Highland Heather really pop.
If you would like to try these cards out for yourself then please pop over to my online shop to buy the items you require. You can use any sentiment stamps that you may have already.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
