I had great fun creating this thank you card for a friend who very generously sent me a surprise recently. (Thanks again Megan) First of all I love surprises and second of all she sent me a cart!! Yes a real, whole, Home Decor cart arrived in my mail box! So of course I had to do something special for her card. When I recently found this grafix craft plastic at M's I had to get some to play around with. This card then just popped into my head after playing with all the images on Design Studio. I love all birds and wanted to do something a little new so here it was.
The clouds and the green (it was a tree) were from Pooh and Friends. The sun I believe was from Doodlecharms, then of course Home Decor was for the bird and branch. The branch was cut from white cardstock then colored with Copic markers. The bird was all yellow so i added some interest with my Copics again. I added a little shimmer to the sun and the cloud with Copic's Spica glitter pens...such a favorite of mine. The first layer is a blue cardstock on the inside with the sun on the corner. Then the inside of the front has the green tree top on it to hide the adhesive a bit and give the bird something to stand out against. Next the very front of the card has the branch, bird and clouds, with the sentiment clipped to it. I just happened to have that laying out :) and was able to add some ribbon to ti! :) The whole card base was a sheet of Grafix "craft plastic" .007mil. It came in 8.5X11 sheets, 25 to a pack. I found it at Michael's hiding with some stacks off to the side. This card was amazingly simple yet really something a little different. I added a little note inside written on a piece of white cardstock. It was hidden behind the art from the front so it didn't spoil the card!
