While I was making Halloween and Fall card sets for the local basket raffle, I decided I should make a Thank You Set as well. I made five cards and envelopes for this card set.


Close Up of one card


All five cards


Size:  Vertical side fold A2 cards

Extra Details:  I began these cards with five card bases made from water color paper. I stamped the strips in black ink on the left side of the card bases. I stamped the sentiment in the center of the card bases. I wanted the sentiments to stand out a bit from the stripes so I clear embossed them.

Then, I added some water color splots to the card fronts. I used Distress Inks and acrylic blocks to add the color to each card. Once the slots were all dry, I added some flicks of the same color and a few black ones also.

Challenges Entered:

                Simon Says Stamp Flickr Challenge #78: Dots and/or Stripes

Stamps Used: Simon Says Stamp’s You + Me

Ink: Versa Fine

Distress Inks in Black Soot, Picked Raspberry, Mermaid Lagoon, and Mustard Seed


Hope you enjoyed the cards
