Hello everyone. Today I have a thank you card to share... but not just any thank you, but a special thank you card for a special gift! My friend Carole Lowe Beath sent me the most beautiful embroidered napkin sets, as well as other wonderful handmade items, which I adored. I cannot say enough about Carole's fabulous sewing - the linen napkins are so pretty and will coordinate with several of my dish sets. And most fun of all, I plan to use them at my up-coming tea party and I know the ladies will love them.
I knew that I needed to make an especially pretty thank you card for Carole both because I love my gift from her so much and because she too is a card maker of great talent. I decided to enlist the assistance of Close To My Heart printed cardstock and inks as well as Heartfelt Creations dies and flower stamps.
I began by cutting the two layer Heartfelt Creations baskets. I then cut six HC flowers and the two leafy branches. Using CTMH ink I stamped the flowers and leafy sections. Using liquid glue and brads, the flowers were assembled and along with the leaves, attached to the basket front.
I used a variety of Close To My Heart solid and print cardstock scraps to create the layered front of the card. The sentiment "Sincere Thanks" is a Close To My Heart stamp.
I was very happy with Carole's card and I hope she was too. I waited until I knew it arrived at her door before posting to the blog. I thought Carole should see it in person for the first time and not see it on my blog first.
Thanks for stopping by today. I will be back tomorrow with my Event Wednesday post.
