We needed a few thank you cards for my youngest's birthday gifts and this week's Wednesday Stamp Club sketch #187 from My Favorite Things came to the rescue! I looked through my stash to find an image befitting a 12-year old girl and came up with this sweet Pure Innocence Sending Big Hugs:
I used MFT's Jumbo Fishtail Banner Die-namics to cut a piece of my Copic Watercolor Background and gave it the stitch detail at the top by using the stitch die from Blueprints 13 Die-namics. The Sno Cone panel was cut using the large panel from Blueprints 13.
The Blu Raspberry Thank You die cut was adhered to a Sour Apple Dimensional Banner. To give the die cut words a little more interest and help them coordinate with the background banner, I colored the lower half of the words with the same Copic B23 color I used on the watercolored background:
FYI: The "thank you" Die-namics does have the "yo" included for "you" -- I just cut those letters off so the word would fit on the banner.
After coloring above, I used my Copic Colorless Blender marker to soften the harsh top line of color. This is how it looks after blending:
The piece of washi tape accent on the lower right of the card was created with MFT's Washi Patterns stamp set (stamped with Sno Cone Premium Dye ink) and the tape die from Blueprints 13. The star accents are also from Blueprints 13 . . . (can you tell I love Blueprints 13?)!!
She and her thank u banner were popped up on Copic Foam Tape. Everything was mounted to a Smooth White top fold card base.
I hope you are having a good end to your July and as always, Thank U for stopping by!
