thank you cards
this morning my daughters slept in until 8:15! what a glorious way to start a morning. i, of course, was already awake. but i absolutely love the mornings, especially if i have gotten enough sleep. so i took this rare opportunity to steal away into my studio. i love being able to create in silence. after being out and about for the last few days, i really have been missing my creative time. so i started a new painting and worked on these lovely thank-you cards to include in all of my packages. these were the first prototypes, so tell me what you think.
ugly blank cards
sponge to apply matte medium
paint or marker to write thank you
i started with some boring thank you cards from my stash. you could use any kind of cardstock or paper really. i even tried some on vellum paper and they worked just great. then i took some torn up pieces of scrapbooking paper and adhered them to the card with matte medium.
i cut the cards in half, so i would have more. then i simply took some brown paint and wrote thank you on the cards. you could also use marker to write as well.
i will probably play around with them a little more, but i like the way they turned out. now i have beautiful little thank-you cards to put into all of my packages. and i hope i inspired you to be a little more creative today and maybe you will make some for yourself!
