A very belated thank you card!
This week we are challenged to make a “thank you” card. I made one a couple of weeks ago for my best friend, my partner, at the beauty salon from this same die set. This one is for someone I have never met. He is the son in law of one of my weekly 92yrs. young, salon customers. HE LOVES TO BAKE! Every week he brings a batch of something he has baked to his mother in law! (mostly cookies) Every week, she brings me and my partner at the salon, each, a zip baggie with 2 cookies in them. We always assumed she was just sharing what he gave her. When I thanked her this week for sharing what her son in law makes for her she said, “Did I give you the impression that I am sharing my cookies with you? He sends these every week specifically packaged for the two of you for your 15 yrs. of making the women of the WW2 generation still feel beautiful!” WOW!
There really are angels walking among us! He’s been doing this for years and we never knew! So this is the “THANK YOU!” card that this man should have gotten a long time ago, but finally will.
Step 1: Using Karen Burniston’s: 1023 – Tag Book Pop Up
Depending upon the theme you’re going for with this set, choose the designer cardstock you will use for the large die pc. I recommend a double sided cardstock. The one I chose is black and white (for a man). It had black and white stripes on one side and white hearts on a black background on the other. I chose the stripes for the outside and the hearts for the inside.
Click on the product link and it will take you, not only to the product, but also the assembly video. I recommend that you watch the video to not only know how to assemble this pop up, but also to help you choose papers/cardstock for your project. This set has 17 dies in it! All the little circle frames, and everything on this project except the “Baker” themed dies are from this set.
Step 2: The cute little “baker” themed inside décor pcs. are from these two die sets:
1277 – Kitchen Tools
The other one is an older and discontinued Karen Burniston die set called:
1100 – Props 8-7 die set:
All the pieces were cut out of white cardstock and colored with Copic Markers except for the oven mittens cut from the stripe side of the “double side”, the “whisk and the fork” cut from silver mirror cardstock, and the one red/white polka dot platter from scrap cardstock.
The 3 “Thank You”‘ sentiments on the front of the card is from this set: I have no idea who makes or made these, but I bought them on “Craft Day” from one of the shopping networks years ago and cut them out with red cardstock.
I also want to thank my sweet followers. If there is anything you want to learn or ask, please leave it in the comments section and I will reply to your comment. Even if it’s about my opinion of a product or technique. If I can’t answer you question, then I’ll link you to the expert who can. Other than that, I can’t wait to see your “Thank You” cards.
