New Year Thank You Notes



Hello, Sylvia here with my weekly papermilldirect DT make.  Now Christmas is over I have been taking time to make a few note cards for friends and family thanking them for my Christmas presents.  I used permilldirect ready made card blanks which are ideal for this, just add a background, sentiment and embellishments and you have a quick, easy card.



I made some inky backgrounds using odd pieces of white hemp and cream hopsack textured card, distress paints, stencils, gesso and distress oxide inks.  I had a major accident when the top came off the silver paint and flooded over the blue background, my desk and workspace.  I quickly scraped off as much as I could off the background and managed to use it on the cards,  but the rest of my desk suffered a little with silver spots and splodges.


The inky backgrounds were cut down to fit A6 co-ordinating coloured card blanks.  Stamped and die cut sentiments were added and some backgrounds were matted onto contrasting card before attaching to the card blank. I added a white paper insert to the cards ready for writing my message.


I used the following materials to create the backgrounds and make the cards:
