THANK YOU-CARD



 
Hi Everyone! This is Holly with a sweet and simple Thank You card.
I began by selecting four print papers from PRIMA-Melody  6x6 Paper Pad, and one matching plain paper for the base layer. Once I decided on the order of the papers, I cut 4 at 1 1/4", 4 at 1 1/2" and 4 at 1 3/4". The finished card is 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". Two opposite corners on each piece were rounded with a corner rounder punch.
 
The base piece was adhered to the card base, then all the pieces were sponged around the edges using ARCHIVAL INK  in sepia colour. I applied a foam tape square to one tip and adhesive to the other. The foam tips were all placed to the outside and the adhesive tips were pressed down flat in the center of the layout.
 
The THANKS stamp was inked with ARCHIVAL INK  in jet black. I added some flat-back black beads from my stash, to finish the card. I didn't time it, but it was a nice, quick card. The longest time was spent choosing the paper because so many beautiful choices are available.
 
Thanks for looking today!

  2. A lovely card and one that is truly simple to make. It is one that somebody who hasn't yet got any of the expensive tools can make and be proud of. Lovely paper too!

  3. This is a great card. I can see using Christmas paper and making a "poinsettia" out of the patterned paper for some quick Christmas cards. Thanks for the inspiration!
