Thank You….

… to my lovely customers. 

This is one of the Thank You Cards created for my customers this month.  I’ve used the gorgeous new “In Colours” to create the cards.  Mind you, they are all in different colours, but will show the remainder in the next couple of days.

I am really loving the new colours as they are right up my alley, ie being subtle & not too bright.  

The cards this month are a little smaller than the standard size, in that they are down a size & I am loving this size for small Thank You Cards.  No extra for postage either!

When I added the Ribbon, I hadn’t realised it had retired, so you are able to replace the ribbon with a current one.  The secret is out – Yep, I haven’t gone through my “stuff” as yet & sorted out the retired products.  That will have to be done today, so I don’t do it again!

Made for You….

… is the card we will be creating this arvo in our Crafty Creations Class.

This is not my idea as I’ve “case’d” it from the web a long time ago.  In fact, I didn’t actually save it but stored it in my mind so that I could use it in one of our Friday’s class.  Please let me know if you recognise it as I would love to give you credit.

Close up of Scallop Edgelit…

I am not normally one for saving cards, but file them in my mind for future use.  I find that if I do save them I never seem to re-create them & they just sit & sit……

If I can remember correctly, I don’t think it was all Stampin’ Up!, so I have adapted some of it to Stampin’ Up!  Don’t you love it when that can occur.  I did play around with trying to get all the measurements correct & even managed to use the Scallop Edgelits from the Finishing Touches Edgelits to work the way I wanted AND it only took 1 go – haha.

It’s a very simple little card, but one with a big impact!
