Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge 19 - Thank You

Hi!

This week the Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge is

Thank You

Now I don't know about you but I think it's always handy to have a few Thank You cards to hand to send whenever you want to let someone know you appriciate them :-)

Strangely though, I like Thank You cards to be fairly clean and simple in style, as opposed to my usual style of layers, embelishments and images a-plenty.  No, doesn't make sense to me either!!

Here's my card


I've used Kraft coloured cardstock and stamped the Heidi Swapp sentiment in Timber Brown Stazon directly onto the card.  I used a panel of Bo Bunny Flutter Butter paper, mounted it on Brown Bo Bunny Double Dot Paper, and wrapped some twine round the card.


The image is from the Gayle Bond/Scrapbook Sisters Florals stamp set also in Timber Brown and then coloured it with Distress Inks, which is something I don't usually do, but I quite like the soft look it gives :-)  After a quick dig aroud in my button jar I tied it with twine and stuck it onto the card.

Looking forward to seeing your creations

Hi Sue. I agree with you about thank you cards. I like making thank you cards actually for that reason. I love yours, loving that sentiment stamp too. Pami x
