Thank You Kindly
by Trina Pham

Hello there.  I am sharing a clean and simple (CAS) thank you card inspired by this month’s Stripes challenge, the beautiful Rose Flower Frame die and a lovely aqua smooshed background piece I had in my stash.


Started by die cutting the Rose Flower Frame from a rectangle piece of Bristol paper.  


Taped the smaller pieces that form the rectangle frame area from behind and removed the other pieces.  Placed a stripe stencil on top and blended Smoky Slate dye ink through the stencil with a blending brush.  


I didn’t worry about blending ink on the frame or flower outline because it was covered up with a silver foil die-cut.


Inlaid the frame back into the Bristol panel.  Attached the aqua background piece behind it.  Stamped the sentiment from Watching the World Bloom with Archival black ink, then mounted the panel onto a white card base to finish.


I loved how easy it all came together, so I went through my stash for other background pieces to use and made these to send to crafty friends at the retreat I went to in May.


Have you played in our Stripes challenge yet?  You have till July 30 EST to enter.  Thank you for stopping in.  Enjoy your day.
