I thought we’d start this month off with a quick thank you card. I made this one for a swap with my sister consultants back in January. It uses the Dreamin’ Big paper packet (X7218B) and the exclusive stamp set from the Workshops Your Way Mother’s Day Cardmaking kit (G1122).
I started with two 1 X 4 inch strips of the flowered paper, a 3 X 3 square of the Goldrush arrows, and a 3 1/4 X 4″ piece of Crystal Blue cardstock. I added a little tone-on-tone texture using the droplet stamp and Crystal Blue ink on the blue cardstock. I just did this randomly around the edges where it would show from underneath the sentiment. I also distressed the edges with matching inks (Crystal Blue and Goldrush)
The sentiment is stamped on a 2 3/4″ square of White Daisy in Goldrush ink. Below the sentiment is a knot of ribbon from the Rustic Home Ribbon pack (I just tied a knot and left the ends a little long. I cut them on an angle to give them the look of a bow). Then underneath the ribbon is a cluster of hearts in Pomegranate.
I layered the White Daisy on the 3 x 3 goldrush piece and then attached these to the card with some Thin 3D tape for added dimension.
You could easily swap out the sentiment on this card with the “Happy Mother’s Day” stamp included in the set or use one of the ‘thank you’ stamps from the “All the Thanks”set (B1536).
I hope you’ve enjoyed this card and are having an amazing weekend!
