Thank you cards

So, tomorrow is the end of my Husband's Cancer treatment and I wanted to show the ladies who helped him through this long process, our appreciation.  The best thing about the project I made today was the Cut and Ready card bases.  I whipped up four cards in no time and that's a good thing because I still had to put the baby down and finish my other work for the day.

Ink:Lost lagoon, Blackberry Bliss, Stampin Write markers (In Colors #133654)

Caring Thoughts card

Today's card was made for my Uncle who just underwent surgery and I want him to know I'm always thinking about him.  I saw a video on YouTube that was using Washi tape and I thought, " I have a stash of Washi, I can do something with it."  This is what I came up with.

Stamps: Hero Arts- With Sympathy
Paper: SU Lost Lagoon,  Whisper White
Ink: SU Lost Lagoon,
Fibers: Pepperell Crafts- Hemp
Other: Stampin’ Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots, Mosaic Madness embossing folder, Watercolor Wonder Washi tape, Glossy Accents, ATG tape runner.

1.       Cut Lost Lagoon card stock to 4 ¼”x 11 and score at 5 ½”. Run through the Modern Mosaic embossing folder.
2.       Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 2 ½”x 4 ½”.  Using the Watercolor Wonder Washi tape, adhere strips on the diagonal on the whole piece.  Fold over the edges.  Round top right corner and bottom left corner and then put dimensional on the back and adhere centered on the right side of the card base.
3.       Using a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock stamp sentiment in Lost Lagoon.  Round the top left and bottom right corners.  Put dimensionals on the left side and tape runner on the right side.  Adhere to center bottom of the card base over the washi panel as well.
4.       I used Hemp cord to make a bow and adhered it to the end of the sentiment with Glossy Accents.
For the inside of the card: Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 4 ¼”x 5” and add a strip of Washi tape at the bottom.

I hope you have enjoyed this project and please check back often for inspiration.
