Many thanks (Set of 4 note cards)

Hey there, crafty friends! This is my last post this morning, I promise! I've been working my crafty little fingers to the bone getting all my design team projects complete and ready to post. OMG, I've had a BLAST! I sure do love our hobby, lol! It's time for another awesome challenge over at House of Cards and I'm proud to share my inspiration project for Use Twine and/or Colors.

Wow, is that not a gorgeous inspiration photo?! Love, love, love all those colors plus the twine, lol! I used the colors and neutral twine on my set of CAS thank you note cards which I'm proud to say were created entirely from scraps except for the card bases.

The floral images were cut from scraps of digital paper left over from a project I created several months ago which I layered onto scraps of yellow and purple cardstock. Occasionally those hoarded scraps do come in handy (wink-wink)! The stamped sentiment is from WPlus9. The only other elements are the twine and rhinestones.

Here is another one with a slightly different image. There are are two like the one above and two like this one. I left the insides blank since they are note cards. I'm really pleased with how these turned out - sometimes the simplest cards pack the biggest punch! ;)

So happy to enter this set of thank you cards into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Stampin' Up! Very Vanilla cardstock, Stampin' Up! Delightful Dijon and Blackberry Bliss cardstock scraps, Blossom Paper Art Vintage Roses digital paper scraps
  • Stamps: WPlus9 Hand Lettered Thanks stamp set
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Accessories: Stampin' Up! Rhinestones

I hope you've enjoyed this project and have found a little inspiration to create a project using twine and/or the colors in the inspiration photo! What a fun challenge this month! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
