Thank You with Black & White


My sweet friend Kim sent me two font cartridges last week that will be just perfect for bulletin boards in my classroom!  I made this little card to thank her.  It is a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card.  The pink layer is 5 1/2" x 4", and the patterned layer, printed from the Imagine Black & White cartridge, is 5 1/2" x 3 3/4".


For my sentiment, I used My Creative Time's Curly Label die, cut in half.  I stamped it with the frame from the Inspiring Words {Accents} stamp set and the sentiment from the Happy Homecoming stamp set.  Click here for ordering information on these products.

 

When I was on my road trip, I got to visit a Hobby Lobby for the first time.  I found this very cool tie die paper that I used for my flowers, punched from Papertrey Ink dies.  It's from The Paper Studio.  The pretty brad is from the Teresa Collins Timeless set that I found at Archiver's (another fun stop on my trip)!  I had to pick up this set, as it goes so well with the Imagine Black & White and Baby Boutique cartridges.

This is ABSOLUTELY gorgeous! I know that Kim will LOVE it, it is just her beautiful style. I love Emma's die cut in half as an accent like that. I have to try that. And I hope you will show us some pictures of your awesome bulletin boards. Hugs- Glora

Such a pretty card, and what a lovely paper for the flowers, with the subtle texture! Who is luckier, your friend or you (to have such a good one!)?
