I had a thank-you card to make, and wanted to make it in pink and brown, my favourite colour combination. However, I knew my husband would want to keep it, so I made him his own card, in green and blue.
“Pour toi” means “for you” and “un grand merci” means “a big thank you”. These cards are both sized to fit (a little smaller than) 3 5/8″ x 6 1/2″ envelopes.
Stamps: Rubber Stamp Concepts Curious By Design series: Paris Voyage (Eiffel tower) and Gypsy Legend (woman). Beeswax Rubber Stamps (mail carrier birds 1163K). Stampin’ Up! French version of All Year Cheer (sentiments), Linen (background).
Paper: kraft, brown, Neenah Paper’s Classic Linen (Baronial Ivory).
Inks: Memories Black. Tim Holtz: Worn Lipstick (for the pink card), Shabby Shutters (for the blue/green card), Walnut Stain, Brushed Corduroy, Antique Linen.
Miscellaneous: Winsor & Newton Cotman watercolours, dimensionals (behind the bird and the woman), sponges.
