Hello, my crafty friends! Hope you had a great weekend! A new challenge launched over at UnstampaBelles last Monday and today is my showcase day on the blog! I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #94 – Well, Thank You! The twist this month is ‘Brilliant in Blue.’ The twist is not mandatory to play but we’d love to see your creativity and it will put you in the running for DT Favorite!
I created a set of eight thank you note cards using Country Road paper from The Paper Studio in gorgeous shades of blue layered on navy cardstock. Once again I used the very cool “One Sheet Wonder” template created by a very talented lady HERE. It’s just so neat to be able to create eight card fronts from one sheet of patterned paper! Double-sided paper yields the best result with this OSW, however, the back side of the paper I used is white which was an awesome compliment to the blues on the front side!
After creating all the backgrounds and layering them on navy blue cardstock, I created the card bases and adhered the backgrounds. The sentiment for each card was created with a round Darice gold foil ‘thank you’ sticker layered on either a plain punched circle or a scalloped punched circle. Each card was embellished with several blue Dot Sparklers. Here are pics of the cards taken in pairs:
The inside of each card is the same, embellished with leftover strips of the blue paper and cardstock used on the front. Since these are note cards, I left each one blank to write a custom message. Loving how these turned out and can’t wait to gift them! ;)
