Thank You cards

Good Morning everyone, i hope you all had a good weekend.

Today i am sharing some thank you cards i made for the lovely Christmas gifts i was given.  



This first one i made for my uncle.  Blue card cut to a 5x6 cardblank, i then die cut the memory box circle burst in the middle.  I used yellow spotty paper as the insert to act as the sun.  Then die cut lots of seagulls and a sentiment from white. 



Side view so you can see the insert.

Little cat thank you.  Russet card cardbase.  I then stamped and coloured the zinski cat with inktense pencils, i then added a pale sky and grass with watercolour.  Die cut with cross stitch rectangle die.  Glitter glue to finish

***




Little 3x4" thank you made from leftovers.  I used the dienamics border die on the front, then die cut the flower into the front.  I then backed with a left over peice of purple brusho card, also cut with the same angle die.  I then die cut the flower overlay from orange brusho card.  Greeting stamped in grey. 


I loved how this one came out in that the stripes are all little stripes of left over brusho card which i then stuck onto white card to make a new 'paper'.  Only trouble is do i then keep all those little strips of paper now!  Card made in much the same way as the one above.

Now these next too came about completely from wanting to use up left over die cuts i amassed during last year.  The only extra i added was the sentiment. 

4.5x5.5" white linen card blank. The inverted scallop square i gently inked in blue distress ink.  I then used a scalloped border die to cut the grass from a scrap of brusho card.  The tree, flowers & rabbits had also been cut from brusho/pixie powder colour cardstock. 



and the same as the one above i just swapped the layout to the sentiment above the topper square.

4x4" card base, die cut into a octogan.  This one came about again after finding the die cut viola and octogan in my left overs draw.  Again all coloured with brusho/pixie powder mix.  I added extra the hello and little butterfly.  Gems to finish.

Memory Box dies - large circle burst, darling viola flower, stitched octogens, 
Obsession Impression dies - seagulls, mini rabbits,
