One of my sweetest friends surprised me with the sweetest surprise the other day - and I couldn't wait to make her a special thank you card! I brought out one of my favorite kind of stamp sets called from JustRite Stamps which are the nested Frame and Sentiment sets (check them all out here - they are such a fabulous way of creating layers of borders and there are tons of sentiments and borders that can be interchanged easily (seriously have been lovin' these sweet nested frames so much!)
For this thank you card, I used the Baroque Nested Frames stamp set and mixed up the borders and sentiments to create this thank you card. I wanted to create something with some urban elegance and so I picked some yummy papers from Prima and used their delicious border of flowers. The sentiment "Thank You" is cut out and popped up and then dotted up with a wee bit of glaze:
Here is a closer look at the sentiment : I simply adore these gorgeous swirls and twirls of this Baroque frame:
Paper: Bazzil and Prima
Ink: Tangelo and Tuxedo Black Ink from Memento
Accessories: line of bling from Want2Scrap, flowers from Prima, ribbon from stash, die from MFT, glaze, Adirondack liquid pearls, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, white gel pen
I don't usually make quick cards (ha! :) mostly because I am watching a movie when I am making a card and picking out papers usually takes hours - but I loved how quickly this card came together - I didn't time it - but it wasn't more than two segments of Friends :) I can't wait to make some more cards with all of these gorgeous sentiments :)
And speaking of the sentiment "Thank You" - a special thank you to all of you for stopping by today!
Hope that you all have a great start to September!!!
