Why hello there Awesome Crafty Friends & Followers,
Happy September! Everyone enjoy thier long weekend? What did you do? BBQ? Work? Relax? Craft?
Have you shared this blog with your friends yet? You haven’t? How come? Please do so. Help a fellow crafter out. If you don’t, that’s okay too. 🙂 I understand. Just want to start interacting more with my followers, however you all are so quiet. Leave me a comment letting me know where you are from.
Today’s card is another thank you card. I was pleasantly surprised the other evening when I logged into my business email account, and I had a new customer. Don’t know this lady, but I am very grateful for her order. I sent her this card along with a couple of goodies as a way to say THANKS!
I love using the AT (Artist Trading) stamp sets we offer. They may be *Small* however they offer a lot for their affordable prices. I used two of these AT sets to create this card. To create the background I used Zen Leaves and created it by doing second generation stamping. I stamped each leaf in it’s own color ( Tangerine Fusion, Pumpkin Bread, Green Olive, and Summer Days) over a Whip Cream panel. Then used the Many Thanks AT set to stamp Thank you over the background in Black Licorice. I decided to round the corners for a more festive look since I was keeping this card pretty simple for mailing purposes. I pulled out one of my favorite silks- Dark Roast- and sprinkled some here and there over the card front. Also lightly misted with that mister bottle of Sparkle Silk from the other day. A Green Olive Grosgrain Ribbon was placed under the sentiment with a *faux* bow in center. For the inside I added another Whip Cream Panel after stamping So much from the Many Thanks AT set. I also second generation stamped the Zen Leaves along the edges of the panel. To complete this card, I pulled out the Peachy/Orange sequins from the Summer Mix and adhered near the sentiment.
I believe it turned out very nice, and I am hoping that this customer enjoys her products she ordered as well as the ones I sent her. (I kept them a secret in case someone else wants to order. I would not want to ruin the surprise for them)
Well, off to sort things needed as we leave Friday morning. Eek. Almost out of time!
Until later….. Keep smiling… Keep crafting… Keep having fun!!!
Hugs and Blessings,
