Thankyou x47

Phew! Done it! 14 hours altogether... 45 thankyou cards with the same layout in 4 different colours and then 2 slightly more special ones to thank their parents.
Most of the paper strips are Henbury Lane but the green ones are Pink Parfait. Got a fab price on the organza ribbon on ebay and also bought the Sizzix Tag die on there aswell. The "With Thanks" sentiment is stamped from Clare Curd's range but for the name and date stamp I actually got a rubber stamp made at Rubber Stamps Direct - it was remarkabley well-priced and VERY speedy delivery. Definitely saved me a lot of time printing out on the computer. The gems are from the Henbury Lane range too. On the parents' cards I've used the PC to print out "Mum & Dad" (after downloading the same font as was used on the rubber stamp!) and then embossed some card for the background using the Papermania Victorian Fleur embossing folder and then inking it to highlight the pattern.
Posted them off today so let's hope they go down well... I have to tell you, I will NOT be rounding any corners on my cards for a good long while!

See you soon!
Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx
