Thank You

2011 08 14_4298_edited-1

I recently sent this card to my friend Gina to thank her for her kindness and generosity. Doesn't it just make your heart happy when people do nice things just because? It kind of bolsters your faith in humanity. Even though it wasn't a big thing, sometimes it really is the small things that make us (me!) happy.

I cut a negative space using the TANL dies and then backed it with some text paper. I added a few flowers from Beautiful Blooms 2 and a bit of bling. The sentiment was stamped on vellum paper and then I scored a line at the top and the bottom of the vellum strip to add a bit of emphasis. It was just a tad bland without it and this subtle texture seemed like the right touch to add. Then all of this was mounted on a Vintage Cream cardbase and the edges inked.

Hope you liked it!

Stamps: Beautiful Blooms 2, Think Big Favorites #5( both Papertrey Ink)
Paper: green (Bazzill), Vintage Cream (Papertrey Ink), vintage book text
Ink: Summer Sunrise and Vintage Tea Duo (both Papertrey Ink)
Other: Turning a New Leaf die, Beautiful Blooms 2 die (both Papertrey Ink), bling
