A Million Thanks

Hi peeps! How’s it going at  your corner of the world? Vera here today. I am currently enjoying the mild winter weather in the South. Seriously, we were celebrating Christmas in short sleeve T-shirt because it was so warm.

Now that the festivity has passed and time for setting up new year’s resolution. One of my new year’s resolution is to be better at mailing out my handmade cards. I think snail mail is a dying art and it’s important to keep it alive. Like, by actually mailing out thank you card. I tend to just email people a thank you note, but the actual card would be more awesome, right?

So, with that in mind, I start to build up my thank you card stash. Start with this beauty from Always Cherry Blossoms set.

I first use my Silhouette to cut the curved panel. My poor Silhouette, I used to use it all the time when I used to submit for publication and now it’s been sitting quietly on my desk for a while and only been used now & then. Hah… I actually used it this time just to make sure it’s still working!

Then, I stamped the cherry blossoms branch on the card panel a few times, varying the angle to get different look and colored them with Copic marker. Before adhering the panel to  the card base, I stamped the sentiment which I got from Happiest Peonies set.

Adhere panel with foam tape and add some mixed size dew drops. I really love the fun detail this dew  drop embellishment add to a card. The mix size is definitely the way to go in my book. I always love mixing size. On the flowers itself, I added some liquid enamel for extra texture.

Well peeps, there you have it. A clean but elegant thank you card. I hope you like the card and with that I also want to thank you for all your support for The Ton in 2016. It’s been a pleasure for me bringing ideas for you through The Ton. Thank you for stopping by here and here’s to a fabulous 2017!

    I love your card. Another stamp set has now been added to my ever-growing wishlist! I have a question (from one Texas girl to another!), did you create your own curve on the silhouette or did you use a file (if so would you mind sharing the file name)? Just curious. I know this is not a post for the silhouette, but I always struggle with my silhouette making the little stitches for some reason when I am trying to create my own shapes. Thank you.
