First, a card. After sponging the card front, and stamping the leaves, I used my post-it leaf masks and stamped the script over the top so that it appears to flow round the leaves. Then came the splattered ink image and the post mark and finally the sponging on the edges of the card stock.
I do think this flowing Thanks sentiment looks great with this set.
You may have noticed that I'm just a little bit obsessed with eyelets at the moment! Oh and linen thread too!
I made a little pillow box to match the card. I love the shape of this and how easy it is to stamp, but the best thing about it is that it's a Bigz die so it runs through the Big Shot and hey presto! in three seconds, you have a box! Of course that means that in three minutes, you have 60 boxes - just imagine how brilliant that is for wedding favours or for other events!
Supplies needed for this project:
Stamps: French Foliage, Thank You Kindly
Ink: River Rock, Old Olive, Always Artichoke, Early Espresso
Card stock: Confetti Cream
Other: Eyelets, linen thread, pillow box Bigz die
You can buy any of these supplies from me and I can have them delivered to your address in the UK. Just send me an email or give me a call on 01280 820593.
While I was typing this, I spoke the words aloud as I usually do, while my daughter amused herself by gently teasing me. "Old Olive..." I muttered. "Ah!" she said. "It wouldn't be a Vicky card if it didn't have Old Olive in it!" I ignored this - but surely I don't always use Old Olive...? I carried on: "Always Artichoke..." I murmured. "Yes, always!" she said brightly. "Without EVEN taking a break from being artichoke!" Isn't she lovely? Every home should have one!
Thank you for taking a look here today. Do come back tomorrow if you have a moment as I'm thinking of having a vintage moment... and no that doesn't mean I'll be feeling my age (even though I will!)
