Thank You Memory Box

Dave and Monica Brethauer from Memory Box/Poppy helped us out a lot during the last days at Art 'n Soul. I won't go in to all of the nice things they did, but they really went the extra mile in making sure that every single customer who ordered with us at the end received their dies or stamps that they wanted. I'll just say that multiple mailings were required, and they were so kind to us. We appreciated it immensely.

I made this card from the pieces left over from the card on my previous post, and I really love how it turned out - even better than the last one. You can see that one here. The outlines of the leaves here came from the Yupo paper that I die cut for the last card. The gold leaves came from the gold outline for the last card. The "thank you" streamer is cut from the same Metallics Super Gold cardstock. The gold leaves were inlaid into the Yupo outlines and due to the magic of die-cutting, they fit perfectly.

The leaf borders and thank you sentiment were mounted onto 110# Neenah Cream cardstock. In this photo, it looks like there is a green border around the card, but there is not. The final size of the card is 5.5" x 4.25". This makes the perfect Fall thank you card.

Poppy 1858 Brilliant Leaf Border die
Poppy 1796 Thank You Streamer die
Ranger Yupo paper
Alcohol inks: Sunset Orange, Terra Cotta, Sunshine Yellow,
