Thanks

Posted in Simple, Thank you at 7:44 pm by happygiggles

I needed a Thank you card so this is what I came up with!

I love the pretty simplicity!  The base is made using Bashful blue with some whisper White and designer paper out of my Costco slab for the next layers.  Over top of these layers I used some lime green Bazzill Bling and a bit of Chocolate brown satin ribbon.  I love all the texture on this card!  I stamped the images and the sentiment using Chocolate brown ink.  The final touches were the rounded bottom corners and the little crystals on the flower from Live your Dream!

Thanks for looking!

Well, other than I haven’t been feeling very creative.  Just feeling tired!  I do have a card to show you though!  Actually two, but I’ll make another post for the other one.

 

I realize it looks pretty similar to the card in the post below, but I kinda liked that card so I thought I would make another one!  This one was for my husband’s Grandma’s 80th this past weekend.  She loved it!  My initial plan for this card was to use the Splitcoast colour challenge using Chocolate chip, sage, and very vanilla.  But that got changed because I really wanted to use the Live Your Dreams stamp set and I only have River Rock ink for a green.  So, I used River Rock paper!  I also wanted to use my Cuttlebug because I know people love the effect of the embossing.

Hope you enjoyed it!
