Hello my friends! I am so glad you could stop by for a new MAKE IT MONDAY tutorial. I think today’s card is amazing and I hope you feel the same. I love the colors (who doesn’t love purple?) and I love the textures that are going on. Let me share today’s free tutorial for the Thanks Friend card.
Today I am featuring a new bundle from our latest catalog called Bouquet Blooms. This bundle is GORGEOUS and it does a lot more than what you see here. The framelits from this bundle actually create a super cool ‘locking’ card but today I just used the flower stamps and framelits.
I just love these little purple flowers and the Soft Sea Foam leaves soften the bold color in the Gorgeous Grape ink.
Let me share the inside of my card. I thought die cutting the cluster of flowers from this bundle would add a nice touch. It really does! It hangs off the edge and makes for a more detailed focal image.
Can you see the texture in the background? It’s a new embossing folder called Subtle and it creates textured cardstock. You are going to want this Embossing Folder, trust me on this. It creates such a great subtle background but takes a simple card up a notch.
Not able to create today? Why not create a file in your “Documents” on your computer and call it MAKE IT MONDAY? Or, you can always search the Categories (right side bar) and click on Make It Monday and you will see all of them.
Here’s what you’ll need to create the THANKS FRIEND card. Use what you have, order what you need. Just click a pic!
Thank you all so much for your birthday wishes for Ginny and for the get well wishes as well. She had a GREAT birthday but with her TMJ, her steak dinner will have to wait. Not to worry, she enjoyed a fabulous wood-fired pizza on the patio at one of our favorite little pizza spots.
She is doing a little better (or at least really good at faking doing better) with her TMJ. Honestly, I think she is just getting used to it. We do have an appointment with a specialist but not until next week so for now, we are hoping the chiropractor can get her the movement she needs until we can see the TMJ doctor and get a plan of action. I sure appreciate all the emails and comments you left about her. You guys are SO SWEET!!! Let me just say, we can feel the prayers so I am truly thankful for that.
I hope you enjoyed today’s card. I wish you could see it in person. The texture adds so much to it but it is so subtle it’s hard to photograph. Please be sure to add this embossing folder to your next order. I can tell you that you will be SO glad you did. The look is amazing!
Well my friends, that wraps up today’s Make It Monday. Please stop by tomorrow for a 2-Minute Tuesday Tip video! See you then!
