Elegant Thank You Cards

Kia Ora Koutou

Welcome back and today I have three elegant cards that I have made for a custom order.  A few weeks back I made three small thank you cards for a bride to give to her bridesmaids and she was very happy with them and came back to request three thank you cards for her parents and family.  I was very happy to have a play with lots of products and some new Creative Expressions Pearl Ivory cardstock.  Here are the three cards:

And this is the card that I made three off for the bride:

Happily Ever After by Sue Wilson

Welcome back

I had a lovely but very busy weekend at the Wellington Paper Arts and Crafts Show.  I met lots of new people and friends to share my love of paper crafting.

This week I am featuring some Sue Wilson dies from Creative Expressions.  I now have a range of these dies available at Gift Hutt and I think they are elegant and very versatile.

The dies I am using are the Lattice Frame and the Happily Ever After die sets.  I love the look of stitching and the Lattice Frame die is just beautiful and can be used for so many things.  I have made three different sized cards using this die set.

First up is the smallest card using the beautiful pearlised cardstock from Worldwin (it is hard to photograph the finish of this card).  I love cream on cream and this card is so elegant for a wedding.  I have cut two layers of the sentiment to help it stand out as this cardstock is quite light weight.



This second card is the medium size die and I have layered the same lovely cream cardstock with a pearl lavender cardstock which I can no longer get from Rosies Studio.  I love the combination of the colours here.


Finally this is the largest size card and I have changed it around a bit and added a Heartfelt Creations Vintage Floret rose for a very versatile card.


Materials used:

Cardstock – Worldwin Diamond Pearl Cardstock, Rosies Studio Pearl cardstock, CTMH Colonial White cardstock

Dies – Sue Wilson – Happily Ever After, Sue Wilson Lattice Frame, Heartfelt Creations Vintage Floret

Stamps – Heartfelt Creations Vintage Floret

Inks – Memento Lulu Lavender

I hope that I have inspired you to create beautiful and elegant cards using these dies and others.

Have a good week and Happy Crafting
