These have been my thank you cards for customers in November. I didn’t manage to get a pic of a batch of them because I kept making a handful of them as needed, sometimes using different material or DSP from the same pack. They were very much “just in time” this month
I actually got this stamp set and framelits bundle (Perfectly Preserved) by mistake – I meant to order the Friendship Preserves bundle. But when it arrived and I saw what a cute set it is I decided to keep it (and I got the original bundle as well ).
The jam jar lids were die cut from the leftover fabric covered card I used for these handbags:
Waste not, want not
The base card is a small square of Lucky Limeade. This was matted with Orchard Harvest DSP (126895). The jam jar from the Perfectly Preserved stamp set (W126690 or C126692)* was stamped in Early Espresso onto Whisper White card and die cut with the matching Cannery Set framelit (127822)* and adhered direct to the card front at an angle. Spotty apples were stamped “into” the jar with Raspberry Ripple ink. Another solid apple was stamped onto scrap Whisper White card with the same ink, die cut out and popped up on the jar with a dimensional. A jam jar lid die cut from card backed with Orchard Harvest fabric (126915) was wrapped with Linen Thread (104199) tied in a bow and then popped up over the jar with dimensionals. The thank you sentiment was stamped onto Whisper White card using Raspberry Ripple ink and punched out with the Small Oval punch (120908). Two small flowers were die cut from Lucky Limeade card (with the same Cannery Set framelits) and matted to the back of the sentiment before popping it up on the card front.
For the inside, the small detailed leaves were stamped in Lucky Limeade and the small flowerhead in Raspberry Ripple ink, onto a Whisper White insert.
*Buy the Perfectly Preserved stamp set and the Cannery Set framelits together as a bundle (W129943 or C129944) and save 15%!
Now to design my December thank yous (which I usually make as Christmas cards – well everyone can do with a spare Christmas card can’t they?)
