This will be short and sweet. I am selling off most of my knitting books and yarn, and I'm going to try to include a mini thank you card in each package when I ship it. Of course, as you know, being small doesn't mean it is any easier or quicker than a larger card--it just weighs less. :)
This was a fun card to make, and fortunately, I was able to make it in about 5 minutes, using an image I had already colored about a month ago, because I had to get the package in the mail, pronto.
The stamp was in a set I found on sale at Hobby Lobby for $2! Isn't it pretty? I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol. I wasn't pleased too much with how it turned out until I distressed it. That totally transformed it (or at least my opinion of it). ;) The background is just a piece of scrap dp that was off-white with light brown and pink lines on it. I embossed it, distressed it with Distress Inks, then dipped the edges in water so I could roll them a little, and finally glued it to the base. That was it. Easy peasy! I didn't have time to photograph the inside, but it was left plain except for a simple Thank You stamp. I need to get busy and make these in advance so I'm not so rushed, but sometimes I think I work better under a little pressure. :)
I'll be entering this in the following challenge:
