Thanks a Bunch

Hello everyone,

Today I am posting a card I made for the Penny Black Circle Challenge. The challenge is to create a thank you card using Penny Black stamps. I chose one of my new stamps from the spring catalogue “Scented garden” and a sentiment stamp from the clear stamp set “Betsy Bluebell”. I made the pennants with a Whimsy die and the little butterflies is punched with a Martha Stewart punch “Pop-up butterflies”. The old-fashioned flocked paper forget-me-not flowers I’ve ordered from my favourite Etsy shop, 32 Degrees North Supplies. Beware, if you visit your bank account is in big danger, they’ve got beautiful crafting stuff! And here is my card, hope you like it:

I used the following to create the card:

  • White cardstock
  • K and Company Designer paper
  • Penny Black stamp “Scented Garden” (4133J)
  •  Penny Black sentiment stamp from Betsy Bluebell clear stamp set
  • Whimsy Pennants die
  • Waxed cord
  • Martha Stewart punch “Pop-up butterflies”
  • Martha Stewart punch “Doily Lace”
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities “Ovals”
  • Skwiglues “Sweet pink”
  • Lyra-Rembrandt Aquarelle and Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils
  • Old fashioned flocked paper forget-me-not flowers

Enjoy the rest of the long weekend and happy crafting.

Regards from South Africa,
