Good Evening Everybody!
After my foray back into the world of driving this morning, I hit the studio....It was so good to get outside and feel independent! Just like old times, (like last week) while driving, I began to think of things I need to do, things I want to do, and projects I want to make....Today's driving thought....A Thank You Card....
Once we made the studio a bit more handicap friendly...which believe me was a trip... I found my way back to crafting! Ahhh, so good! However, everything is kept in different areas in my studio in my attempt to be organized. You really need to WANT to get up, get on the trike, roll across the room, grab what you are looking for, stick it in your basket, roll back over, dismount the trike, sit down and then and only then grab the idea-ology keyhole to glue it in place! Bahahahaha!
Anyway, here's what I came up with today. A simple travel inspired thank you card...
I used two pieces of chipboard to make the card. I cut the pieces to 5 x 9-inches and covered the front and back with Theresa Collins, Far and Away paper collection. Next, I cut some hinge pieces and adhered them around the spine of the card to the front and back. I then used my digital cutter to cut out the Leaning Tower of Pisa and glued that to the front of the card. I used some of the cut outs from the paper collection and embellished the front a bit. This is where the Idea-ology key hole comes in....LOL! I applied wet glue to the back and placed it on top of everything.
On the inside, I made a simple pocket and placed the tag on which I will write my greeting, into the pocket. Next, I used the letters from the collection to spell out, "Thank You!"
Last, I punched a hole in the top right corner of the card and again "triked" over to the ribbon box for some black cording and a hinge clip...I threaded the cording through the punched hole and tied a bow on one end. I then knotted a hinge clip to the remaining end to clip the card shut. That's It!
Of course this wouldn't be a card I could send through the mail, but hand delivered with a huge hug!
Well that's it for tonight! Have an awesome weekend!
