"thank you" watercolor card

Hello Crafty Friends!  Kathy Jo here sharing a watercolor Thank You card.  'Tis the season to be visiting friends and family- a handmade Thank You card would be a thoughtful gift to an event host or a kind friend.

The focal point of the card is the "Thank you" die set:
thank you - Metal Cutting Dies
Watercolor paper was colored using two shades of yellow watercolor.  After drying, pink watercolor was randomly flicked on the background:
The background was die cut with a rectangular stitch die.  It was mounted on white card stock cut slightly larger than the yellow background.  Both were mounted on a scalloped card base.
A watercolor flower, twine, cheesecloth and washi tape was added to the corner as shown.  Stickles was applied to the flower center.
Thank you was die cut twice: coordinating pink card stock (matching the card base) and white card stock.  It was adhered to the card front using liquid adhesive.
Isn't it a bright and cheerful thank you card?  Change the colors and flower and it is perfect for a holiday themed card.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a happy, crafty day!
Hugs,
Kathy Jo
