For these thank you cards I have fallen back on the very first set of stamps that I bought from Stampin' Up called Fresh Cuts. The main stamp in the set is this lovely background which is part script and part foliage. I then stamped out some butterflies using my favourite butterfly stamps from Hero Arts - 'Three Artistic Butterflies' - these had been discontinued but then were re-released for a limited time so I grabbed them - they have certainly earned a place in my downstairs unit where my most loved stamps live!! The butterflies were fussy cut (and yes I did lose the odd antennae!!) then were lightly glittered with Diamond Stickles which has a slight gold sheen to it.
The sentiment is by Stampin' Up and the sentiment mats were made with SU punches.
Whilst I was making these, I decided to make some of them into get well cards.
Tomorrow I will be back with the final part of this little series on Thank you cards.
Hi - I'm Karen thanks for stopping by my blog and taking a peek. I'm a 50 something, Marillion obsessed, craft mad individual. Thankfully I have an understanding hubby who is also mad on Marillion and doesn't seem to mind me filling the house with all my crafting paraphenalia. I have recently quit working as a clerk to a local school's governing body and am now adjusting to being a full-time domestic goddess.
Thank you very much for taking the time to look at my little blog.
