I hope you have had a lovely bank holiday weekend! My husband was working on Saturday so I met up with my friend Mitchell for a cheeky hog roast roll and crackling at our local butchers then I met up with my friend Jaci in Taunton and went to the cinema to watch Guardians of the Galaxy (such a funny film!).
Yesterday, my husband Phil and I went to Bath for the afternoon for a spot of shopping and finished the day with a lovely meal at Jamie's Italian. Of course the British Weather couldn't last so thankfully we planned a day at home today.
I am going to head up to my craft room soon to spend a few hours playing with my new Christmas supplies! In a few days time, the new Autumn Winter Catalogue will be available so keep an eye on my blog for all the details and sneak peeks of the products.
I hope you like my project today. Its a set of thank you cards that I sent out recently.
The edges of the white cardstock have been distressed and the flowers and butterflies have been placed randomly to give this a more relaxed feel.
I used Blackberry Bliss and Wisteria Wonder for the card on the left and Island Indigo and Soft Sky for the card below.
I used the stamp set Gorgeous Grunge for the background stamping and the Bitty Butterfly, Petite Petals & Itty Bitty Accents Punch for flowers and butterflies.
I punched out the larger of the two flowers onto whisper white cardstock and sponged the edges with the two colours I was using for each design. I just love this effect.
The butterflies and small flowers were punched out onto coloured cardstock, using the darker of the two colours.
I then used Rhinestones & Pearls to add some interest to the centre of the flowers and butterflies.
I added a sentiment to the front of the card from the And Many More stamp set. I choose the word Cheers..... but you could choose any sentiment you wish!
To finish, I then decorated the inside of the cards using the Papillon Potpourri and Lots of Thanks Stamp Sets.
I would be thankful if you could leave me a comment to let me know what you think of these cards and also what you have been doing this August Bank Holiday weekend?
