Hi there. Today I’m posting a card for Artfull Crafts. I just received a sad news that one of my daughter’s favourite preschool teacher will be leaving the centre soon. She’s found a job closer to home & this is very understandable. No need for long drives & she gets to see her girls more often, not getting home so late. She’s been such a big & important part & we can only wish all the best for her. This calls for an extra special thank you card, which I’m sharing with you today.
Extra special means lots of layers. I love the prettiness of the Secret Garden collection, with a bit of mixed media thrown in.
There’s a good variety of ribbon & embellishments at Artfull Crafts, & surely there’s something there that will tickle your fancy. In this card I’ve added a Butterfly Artfull Embellies & some Vandoros Herringbone Ribbon with a pin through it.
I’ve lightly applied some gesso at the base of the card. Once dry, I had a good play with my Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, & Kaisercraft & Prima stamps.
The dies that I’ve used here are My Favourite Thing’s Die-Namics Swirls die (which you can request from the shop) & Kaisercraft’s Doily Die. Some left over from the specialty paper, stickers & collectable pieces are added. The front of the card is finished off with some mini paper blooms.
Inside I’ve added a cheeky photo of my (cheeky) daughter for her to keep. The white doily provides a great writing space inside the card. Something different, & it really goes well with the Secret Garden papers.
I hope you enjoyed looking at the card with me. I was very inspired creating it & I hope she’ll love it as much as I do. Remember to appreciate & be thankful to all our wonderful teachers. They do so much for us & they need to be reminded that often. Do check out the Secret Garden collection here. Thanks for dropping by.
