Strawberry Thank You

Made a thank you card using this weeks 2S4Y challenge sketch.

I decided to make it a mini card.  This was my first time trying this, I usually make larger cards.  It was a challenge in and of itself to think on a smaller scale.  But, I really enjoyed it.  My kids thought the little card was “so cute.”

I used Bazzill paper for the card.  They make 3×6 sheets so all you have to do is fold it in half and you’re golden!  Then I used a strawberry background paper from DCWV Nana’s Nursery Baby Girl stack (as are the other patterned papers I used).  The green polka dot ribbon is from Joann’s.  I stamped the Unity strawberry stamp twice.  Once on pink polka dot paper, once on green plaid.  Then cut them out.  I used the green for the leaves and stem, also the highlight on the strawberry.  Then I used my quick glue pen to make spots on the strawberry for the cherry popsicle Martha Stewart glitter to stick to, and popped it up.  Finally, I stamped a sentiment with my Stampin’ Up stamp, punched it out and inked the edges.  I restamped the berry on the envelope.

I hope you like it.

Thanks for your kind comments and feedback.  I really enjoy hearing from everyone!

We went to visit my parents in Branson, MO this weekend.  We spent one day at a waterpark, the next waterskiing, tubing and boogie boarding.  The last night we went to Silver Dollar city.  It was so hot and humid we sweated through our clothes (even at 7pm it was in the 90’s).  Once it started to cool off it become more enjoyable.  Then we got on a rollercoaster and log flume ride that got us wet all over again!  This thank you card is going to my mother’s neighbor who was kind enough to give us her local after 6pm passes to the park (when combined with the 2 my parents gave us we only had to buy one park ticket…and drinks, snacks and souvenirs!).  We had a great time!
