I needed to get a quick and simple thank you card out in the mail the other day and this is what I came up with:
The weather was a bit overcast when I took my pics so you may not see all the details. I took a cream card base and randomly stamped tiny flowers all over the front. I colored the cute girl holding the tall ice cream cone separately on white cardstock, paper-pieced her dress using the cutest cherry blossom patterned cardstock ever from Paper Garden, cut the entire image out and attached it to the solid cream oval.
I used different colors of Spica Glitter pens for all the scoops of ice cream...gotta make them sparkle, ya know!
Since this card was for a crafty person, I repeatedly stamped the paint can and brushes images with two coordinating colors for the inside of the card. I think stamping one a different color gives an added interest and draws your eye to it.
I finished the front of the card up using thin cotton yarn I found in the knitting section of the craft store. I tied it around the cover a few times and tied a bow. I like using this yarn sometimes because the weight of it is a little thicker than baker's twine that seems to be popular these days.
Well, I'm off to start another load of laundry...I'll be back when I fold the last shirt!
Thanks for stopping in!
