Thank You Card using Stampin' Up! products
Today's project was inspired by a gift I bought to say thank you to someone who quite simply made my Christmas Eve.
I received an unexpected package in the post and when I opened it, I was so stunned as I didn't think these kind gestures existed anymore. It was refreshing to receive such a thoughtful gift!
So for my gift in return, I bought this beautiful scented heart from Sainsburys and based the design of this card on the packaging. Don't you just love things that match?
I cut my card base from half a sheet of A4 Perfect Plum cardstock and then cut 2 pieces of Naturals White cardstock 1/4 inch smaller than the card base.
Using a piece of Naturals White cardstock and Crumb Cake ink, I stamped a sentiment from the Feel Goods stamp set in the centre of the cardstock which reads "those who bring sunshine into the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves".
I then used the leaves from the Kinda Eclectic stamp set to stamp around the edge in Perfect Plum ink.
I then sponged the edges on the Naturals White cardstock with Perfect Plum to remove any harsh lines before adhering the layer to the Perfect Plum card base.
For the inside of the card, I used the second piece of Naturals White cardstock and used a sentiment from the Lots of Thanks stamp set which reflected the message I wanted to send "to a thoughtful you from a thankful me".
I used the same technique on the envelope to carry the design through.
If you would like to order any of the products used in this project, please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by. I hope to hear from you soon!
