We are again featuring customer “Thank You” cards. I always like to thank anyone who shops with me with a hand crafted card of thanks. I simply write a message of appreciation on a post it note, pop it inside and then my customer can repurpose the card once they have read my note. it’s a win, win for all.
I deliberately create simple but eye catching thank you cards that will hopefully entice people to have a go at making one themselves.
For my September card I have used a standard Basic White card base, a mat layer of embossed Basic White using the Tasteful Textile folder and a piece of Basic White card, die cut using the second largest Scalloped Contours die.
I coloured this piece using our superb blending brushes. For the top I used Balmy Blue ink and the bottom is using Old Olive. I simply swirled the ink onto the card starting on a scrap piece of paper and working across the card. Each time you reink the blending brush, work a little of the colour off on your scrap paper before swirling it onto your card. This gives a softer image.
To complete the card, I cut flowers and leaf stems in Basic White using the Meadow dies from the Annual catalogue. I arranged these randomly onto the coloured background, then mounted the entire piece onto my prepared card front.
Finally, add a sentiment of your choice and you are done. I chose to use the sentiment from Feels Like Home stamp set, one of the FREE Sale-a-bration items when you spend £45 or more before the end of September. I cut it out using a slim die from the Rectangle Stitched set of dies. They are a really useful die set to have in your craft stash.
