Thanks A Bunch Note Card

** 11/11/16 Featured Creation at Scrapping4fun Challenges! **

Hi everyone! Happy November 1st - hope you had a fun time celebrating Halloween if you live in the States! We had a great time! My Crafting Stories is launching a new challenge this morning and I'm happy to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #11 - Thank You! We're being sponsored by Angie's Digital Stamps this time so come on over and play with us!

I chose the absolutely adorable Angie's Digital Stamps 'Birds in Birdbath' digital image for my thank you card. I created my own background with repetitive stamping to match the sentiment stamped on the colored image. I'm enamored with my stitched dies and used a double stitched one to cut the image.

I found a scrap of black and white dotted ribbon in my stash that I used to fashion a small bow which I think compliments this image and background very nicely. The only other embellishments used were blue gemstones.

I left the inside blank, as this is a note card, but did decorate it with a scrap of dotted paper and the blue cardstock used for layering.

Happy to enter this thank you card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Premium White cardstock, GKD Powder Blue cardstock, The Paper Cut Black & White Dots paper scrap
  • Stamps: Angie's Digital Stamps 'Birds in Birdbath' digi, WPlus9 'Hand Lettered' Thanks stamp set
  • Ink: Spectrum Noir- TB2, TB3, TB4, CT1, CT4, IG4, IG5, LG5, Spectrum Noir Aqua- Marigold; Memento Tuxedo Black ink
  • Dies/Punches: Cottage Cutz Double Stitched Rectangle die
  • Accessories: MISTI, Black and white dotted ribbon scrap, Blue rhinestones

I hope you've enjoyed this project and have found a little inspiration to create a thank you card for our challenge this month! Be sure to check out all the fun digital images over at Angie's Digital Stamps! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you shortly for another post, lol!
