My son's adorable girlfriend recently asked me if I would help her to make several thank you cards. I was happy to help, but was stumped as to where we should start. They needed to be impersonal but be dripping with personal as they would be going to the folks in charge of handing out the many scholarships she received! She likes blue, so that is where I started! I kept it semi mono chromatic using several shades of blue and tried to keep it simple with a touch of elegance. I feel like she wanted them to have a little bit of that handmade feel so I added a few little ribbons to try to do just that. I used Sincerely Salutations from SU! for the sentiment and paper pierced and faux stitched around the edges of the whole card and corners of the sentiment. I used my Marvy punches for the two squares. I used a swirl from a great set made by Autumn Leaves for the accent. I stamped it twice, once with Cool Caribbean and then again with Blue Bayou to give it a rich 3d look.I layered blue on blue on blue! They should be pretty quick and simple to recreate! She will be coming over tomorrow so we can mass produce several of them! She is such a sweetie and I am happy to be able to help her out!
The second photo is of a beautiful long stemmed rose that my very sweet hubby brought me on Friday! He had been out of town all week and when he came home he brought this to me! He is a real keeper! Love you, Cory!
