Today I want to share part of a set of thank you cards that I made for a friend.
I was inspired by this idea by Betsy Veldman to attach strips of patterned paper to a sheet of 8.5x11 cardstock and then cut it apart to make four cards. I also used this week's Make it Monday at Papertrey Ink: Decreasing Apertures for all of them.
Here is the first card:
Again, I used Papertrey Ink cardstock (stamper's select white, soft stone), stamps (Leaf Prints & Happy Trails (sentiment)) and dies (Mat Stack & Leaf Prints).
The patterned paper for all of cards are strips of Basic Grey, My Mind's Eye, Bo Bunny & Stampin' Up! that were in my scrap accordion folder and the buttons are from my stash.
