I'm big on making thank you cards to those who help us or those who give generously (or at all for that matter!). This card is a thank you card for my grandma. Last week while skyping with my BFF Leslie I made this card from a sketch... the original sketch was for a 6x6 card, but I made mine just a tad bigger than A2 size.
So, the card was fairly easy to make, well actually, it was fairly easy to ASSEMBLE. LOL now, getting all the sizes proper so it didn't look like it was eating itself, well, that was the hard part! haha!
The deco paper is from the bo bunny crazy love 6x6 pad stack. I matted it on top of plain non-textured pink cardstock and then used cocoa brown paper underneath from ATD.
For the dip on the sentiment stack, I did that by hand. I just drew a wavy line on some chipboard and then drew it on the cardstock and cut it out... to get the bigger rounded corners on the card I used a chipboard circle and masked part of the edges and traced the circle and cut it out... my corner punch wasn't giving me a large enough rounded edge and I wanted it to be really defined. I am not sure what company the sentiment stamp is from... it was originally a wood mounted stamp, and I want to say it was from a hostess collection from CTMH, because I received the sentiment stamp set from a CTMH rep that is a friend of mine... but I'm not positive! If you know who makes this stamp, please let me know! I stamped the sentiment in chocolate chip SU ink.
I added some ribbon and tied it in a knot and then layered a 2 layer crocheted flower on top of a single layered flat flower. I attached them together with a little bit of tacky glue and a heart brad to follow through with the heart theme on the paper. I attached the flowers to the card with zots.
I hope you liked the card I created and that it's inspired you to try something different, too!
Keep on Scrappin' and please, be kind to one another!
