A couple of years ago, Lori Brechlin invited me to be part of her “Ghoultide” celebration/sale at Notforgotten Farm. After it was over, I sent her a thank you note, and I had so much fun making it that I thought I’d share the process with you…. better late than never!
Above are the supplies I gathered together to make the thank you card. Distress Ink, stamps, plain notecards, and a piece of plastic (Saran wrap works well).
I used Distress Ink in Walnut Stain to stamp, lightly, a pattern around the perimeter of the plain notecard. Then, using the same ink, I took my piece of plastic, wadded it up into a ball, applied some Distress Ink to the plastic and rubbed it lightly all over the notecard, emphasizing the edges.
Now, the whole notecard is lightly aged.
Using the zig zag stitch on my sewing machine, I sewed all the way around the edge of the notecard.
Then, with Mod Podge at the ready, and a used tea bag, which I emptied of tea, dried, and unfolded, I made a patch on the inside of the card.
Before adhering the tea bag, I stamped “Thank You” where the patch will lay (or is it lie? I can never remember the lay, lie, laid rule).
That tea bag surely makes the “Thank You” pop!
I love making cards, but they do take TONS of time ~ I mean HOURS! How about you? Do you make your own thank you’s?
I’d love to see some!
