Hi there everybody! You've got Laura here with you today, and I've
got a simply sweet thank you card to share!
Do you like to make cards ahead to have on hand for little things that
pop up in addition to birthdays, Christmas, baby and such? I always
find having a few extra Thank You cards around, so you can send a
quick hand written note of appreciation, is a great idea! It's also a perfect
way to use up your scraps from other projects too! I had scraps of
paper from a home decor project I completed, so I thought hey, I'll
see what I have to make a cute card! I like to have an assortment of the
Clear Scraps chipboard embellishments around to create with. Why?
Because I can coordinate them to any kind of papers, color palette or
project. They work well for LO's and home decor projects too, but they
are also a great size for cards! For this one, I used the cute little
Clear Scraps Mason Jar Chipboard Embellishment.
I traced the jar on a scrap of leaf patterned paper, cut it out and glued
it to the base piece. The jar outline piece was painted with dark brown
acrylic paint to match the fall theme of the Thank You card, the jar lid
is painted gray and then brushed with a bit of black distress ink to create
an antiqued look. Then a bit of twine, and a couple of leaves that
were fussy cut and tied on make a cute little jar decoration. It would
be fine plain too. It's all about how YOU want to create when you use
these chipboard embellishment pieces! Check out the Clear Scraps
store for the huge selection! You can find them all right HERE.
Thanks for stopping by today!
