Thoughts and prayers tree, thank you set



One of the sets of 5 cards which I sell boxed at the markets. It's always good to have some thank you cards in the cupboard and these are quite versatile - and not a butterfly or a flower in sight!

This simple set uses the gorgeous tree image from the "Thoughts and prayers" set which is such a versatile image. I have used Old Olive ink to stamp the tree and some strips of coordinating 
DSP from the "Etcetera" collection to add some depth to the Vanilla card fronts. I have used matching embroidery floss  ( both olive and navy) wrapped around the card front and embellished with an Olive Glimmer Brad - wish I had a few more of these.... On the navy cards I used a regular brass paper fastener from the newsagents which I have dipped in versamark ink and Pewter embossing powder. The heat embossed metal brad works really well though it is a lot bigger than the craft variety.
I always decorate the inside of my cards to match the front and I also stamp the envelope to match. 

Thanks for looking, Liz
