With the holidays behind us, the PV DT is back, hard at work creating projects to inspire and delight. Our challenge for Jan 17 was to create a Thank You card featuring an Impression Obsession stamp. The stamp that was in my package of goodies was simple but elegant. Kind of a perfect combination for a thank you card I think.
Here's the card I created using it. I used the beautiful Authentique Gathering Collection from the Nov DT kit.
One other interesting note: see that orange dotted paper? That's a little bit of Crate Paper that matched this line perfectly. So a little reminder, when you get new paper pull out some of your older favorites and see how they work together. Get more bang for your buck doing this.
If you'd like to recreate this here are the measurements. Card base is A2 kraft. The patterned paper base is 4 1/4 x 5, the blue patterned block is 3 1/4 x 4 1/4 with a second pattern sized 1 1/2 x 4 1/4 matted and stitched on top. I use a zig zag stitch with deep orange thread to stitch the 2 patterns together and a cream thread with a straight stitch around the edges. Tag was simple inked after alterations. There are lots of ways to attach ribbon to the tag. This time I chose to simple thread the orange & blue thru the hole and then tie them with the 2 colors of twine in a bow.
