It’s been so cloudy and rainy here for most of April, so when I sat down to make my customer thank you cards for the month, I wanted to make something that was bright and cheery. What’s brighter than Lemon Lime Twist? These cards are simple to make yet beautiful to receive. I hope they made y customers smile when they saw them!
I made two versions – one horizontal and one vertical. I just love the softness of the organdy ribbon tied in a simple bow. (It was a free item during Sale-A-Bration and I hope you were able to get some before they were gone!)
The horizontal card starts with a base of Lemon Lime Twist cut at 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored at 4 1/4. The Whisper White layer is cut 4 x 5 1/4, and the cheery gingham paper is from the Gingham Gala paper pack that is available in the Occasions catalog. It is cut at 5 1/4 x 2. The “hello” sentiment is from the Beauty Abounds stamp set, also in the Occasions catalog, stamped in Lemon Lime Twist. It all comes together with a simple bow in the Lemon Lime Twist organdy ribbon.
The vertical card uses all the same supplies and starts with a card base in Lemon Lime Twist cut at 4 1/4 x 11, scored at 5 1/2. The Whisper White layer is cut at 4 x 5 1/4, and the gingham paper is cut at 4 x 3.
A couple of notes — the Gingham Gala paper will be retiring when the Occasion Catalog ends on June 3. The Lemon Lime Twist paper and ink will be retiring when the current Annual Catalog ends on June 3. The Beauty Abound stamp (which is in the current Occasions catalog) will be carrying over in the new Annual catalog that goes live on June 4.
