It’s great to be back! And it’s great to be featuring this thank you card, made with the new Coffee Café stamp set, for Freshly Made Sketches.
We just returned from showing Jackie in Canada for three weeks, and I needed several thank you cards to send out to my new Canadian friends. I thought Narelle’s sketch would be perfect for showcasing the adorable Coffee Café set. It’s easy, thanks to the coordinating Coffee Cups framelits. I hope you like this cute little thank you card a latte!
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips … Thank You Card
This finished card measures 4-1/4″ wide by 5-1/2″ long.
Easy peasy are the key words to describe this thank you card. The stamping involved is a breeze.
The greeting was stamped in Garden Green, the lid in Early Espresso, and the little hearts are Cherry Cobbler. Since this was the first time I inked up this set, I rubbed over the lid and sentiment oval with a pencil eraser to help the ink adhere better, thus providing a better image.
To add texture, I added a Linen Thread bow, and popped the sentiment up on a Corrugated Elements oval. Cherry Cobbler Enamel Shapes add a “pop” of color.
This card is heading to Keith, who not only opened his home up to two human and one four-legged guest, but he also introduced us to that Canadian staple…Tim Horton’s! You can’t beat the apple fritters. Nearly every morning, we would walk the dogs the short distance to the coffee shop, and two of us would hold dogs while the third person would go in and order. Then we would make our way to the park across from his home and enjoy our goodies. I am sure he will understand the significance of my design. Of course, this daily routine certainly did not help my diet!
Over the next few days, I will be sharing my Canadian adventures with you. Expect plenty of pictures of Jackie the Boxer, as well as Niagara Falls. Plus, I’ll be designing more thank you cards which I’ll feature AND I will be sharing my list of retired stamp sets and framelits. Of course, as always, if you ever have any questions about the cards I create or the products I use, I am only an email away! Until next time…
