Thanks


I found myself in need of making some thank-you cards, so I pulled out my SU! scalloped top punch, along with a Lil Inker diagonal stitched die and made several designs. I used some GinaK Orchid cardstock ( I LOVE this color), and added a Hero Arts sentiment along with some mini brads, rounding the bottom corners for a softer look. The dsp is from the Violet Crush paper pad by KaiserCraft.


Here's a 2nd card using dsp from the same Violet Crush paper pad, but this time I used a retired SU! sentiment, along with some butterflies done in 2 sizes with punch-a-bunch punches.

I made 6 more of this design and will send them off to OWH as they're asking for thank-you cards for their January mid-month throwdown.

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

Beautiful, both of them. I love that stitched die and your papers are so pretty. The paper on your first card was "made" for this card. The heroes will be very happy to have such beauties to send home. Have a good day.

WOW! I'd not think to use this vividly beautiful color, but I sure like what you've done with it. Love the use of the pretty flowers in #1's corner with that nifty tag (now I have another stitched die to drool over!!). #2 is quite different, but equally lovely with the softness of the dotted papers behind that pretty bright tag with the butterfly flight. Very elegant Thank you's. Big hugs, and hope you folks are staying cozy & warm if that snow gets down your way. TFS
