Thank you - Postcard
You may remember a few days ago I mentioned that I rang a craft shop online to ask after a set of Kanban stamps and the guy very kindly popped the set of stamps in the post to me and asked I send payment when I had received the stamps
Well they arrived and I love them so as a thank you I made this very very quick and easy card so I could send cash without it appearing that cash was enclosed.
So I used a pre scored card blank that I had picked up on a visit to the Kanban warehouse when it was open.
I stamped onto plain white card then used a Tim Holtz distress ink pad to age the edges
Using watercolour pencils I coloured the seats in the car and also the tyres
A simple Thank You was stamped on to white card and aged with the same ink pad.
I then matted both the image and the thank you onto dark blue shimmer card, the main panel was stuck centrally on the card and the sentiment had the blue corners pinched with the corner punch then was secured across the top left corner of the image with double sided tape
I guess this card took me around 10 minutes to make which is why I said it was a very very quick and easy card
The stamp used was a La Blanche but it doesn't have a name that I can see...I can highly recommend these stamps though – I have a few in my collect these days!
And that's your lot for today folks
Till the next card ..x.. ..x.. ..x..
