Welcome to Thank You Thursday, a day when you make and give thank you cards to spread good will. All of today's cards are inspired from 31 Thank you cards eBook (shown above). And again the cards are created from Doodlebug Designs create-a-card line. Thanks Doodlebug!
Thank You Butterfly by Robyn
I sometimes struggle with cards because there's such a small space available to work with. I loved card #12 in the eBook that uses a cluster of embellishments to anchor the design. I started with some of the Doodlebug glitter paper and added an embossed die-cut shape that I wrapped with Doodlebug twine and topped with a dimensional embellishment. The "thank you" sentiment sticker in white provides a great contrast on the black background.
Afloat by Ashley
This card was inspired by Heather Nichols Card on pg 12 of the 31 Thank You Cards. The boat and the dad sentiment are what inspired me. I just love this whimsical card that is so true to Doodlebug Design. A fun tip for this card is: Make movement on your card by placing small embellishments such as jewels or brads on the horizontal. That draws the eye across the card and the water moves! :)
Thank you card in black and white by Melissa
This card was inspired by Kristina Werner's card on page 7 of The 31 Thank You Cards Ella Publishing e-book. I love the way she used a mask. I didn't have a mask, so I used a sheet of Doodle Bug Designs thank you sticker and stuck those to my card. A quick spray of mist and I pulled up the stickers. they left a great thank you background for my card.
Two cards by Shemaine
I was inspired by the color combination of black, white and yellow that Kristina used for her thanks card (pg. 22). I love yellow and black together. So for my card I chose to use the same color combo by repeating the sentiment in white Doodlebug Design stickers and added the pop of pink at the end. The 3D flower over the strips of bright pattern paper really pops off the black cardstock.
I was inspired by Kimber mention of how " flowers were a lovely way to let a friend know how much you appreciate all she does for you." and the beautiful felt basket of flowers on the front of her card. (pg. 26) So I chose the Doodlebug bouquet 3D sticker for the focus of my card as well. I love adding color to my cards and these bright colored rhinestones and glitter paper by Doodlebug Designs make it easy to do just that!
