A sunny thank you for the Mojo Monday challenge


I hope that you're still enjoying the extended holidays. Now that Christmas is over and done, I'm in need of some thank you cards and decided to use the sketch inspiration over at MojoMonday as my starting point:


I opted for the square design and chose some sunny colours to add a bit of brightness to all this grey weather.


Recipe
Stamp set: Simply Said
Cardstock: Peach Parfait, Daffodil Delight
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Peach Parfait, Poppy Parade, Versamark, Signo White Gel Pen
DSP: Sunny Garden
Punch: Full Heart, Corner Rounder
Other: White EP

The card blank is a 5" square of Peach Parfait. Squares of Sunny Garden DSP had the outside corners rounded and were adhered direct. The flower spray from the Simply Said stamp set were stamped twice, side by side, in Versamark onto Peach Parfait card, heat embossed with White EP and then the flowers filled with the white gel pen. This layer was then matted direct to Daffodil Delight card and then popped up on dimensionals in the centre. The solid heart was stamped with Daffodil Delight onto Daffodil Delight card. Using the stamp-a-ma-jig I then stamped the words heart around it using Peach Parfait ink. The thank you sentiment was stamped over the top of both with Poppy Parade ink and then the heart punched out and popped up on dimensionals.

Think I'm going to need a few more thank you cards over the next few days. I've had such lovely presents and a hand-made thank you card shows how much they're appreciated.

Thanks for stopping by.
