I've been slowly flexing my crafting muscles again after the winter holidays break and I've made up a few much-needed thank you cards. Let's take a look, shall we?
First of all, I'd like to say that I'm totally and utterly smitten with Pebbles' From Me to You collection. If you're a card-maker, this collection is absolutely a must-have! I've found that I keep turning to it time and time again and it's wonderful for all sorts of cards from birthdays to thank-yous.
I drew a fair bit of colour inspiration from the February 2Peas mood board; specifically the pink and chalkboard elements, plus a bit of freehand doodling.
This first card is for a colleague from work whom is also my wonderful yoga instructor who will soon be moving to Switzerland. I wanted to make sure she got a card before she left.
I also needed a second thank you card for a friend who helped cat-sit Oskar during the bathroom renovation from Hell and over the winter holidays while I was away. Rather than re-invent the wheel, I took the same design as above and made a second card.
Again, all layered with the chalkboard banner and a chipboard tag and some floral stickers. I also added a chipboard bouquet and some embroidery floss for the fibre element. Another doodled edge to ground the image. On the inside of the card I've added a little glassine bag, in which I'll add a personal note and an extra surprise.
I've linked up available supplies for both cards to my 2Peas account - just click through the links below the pictures if you're interested in seeing what I used and the manufacturers.
