Thank You Card plus a Color Refresh!

By | Cards, Thank You Cards | No Comments

This simple Thank You card has a few fun, easy tricks to it that I’d like to share with you. The first is in the matting of the card stock.

Put the greeting banner over the bottom of the circle and bam……

The weather here in Wisconsin is frigid and another snow storm is on it’s way. Frankly I’m done with it and luckily I have stamps and inks to transport me to a far away land.

Tips for making these cards: Use a Heart Framelit die to cut a heart out of the center of a piece of card stock.  Add pretty paper to the back so that it shows through the heart. Size matters!  Notice how different the borders of Real Red card stock look on the two cards?  One is narrow, one is thicker.  Each gives a very different look.
