Merci Beaucoup!

Sometimes a simple distress ink-blended background and a big and bold sentiment are all it takes to put together a nice thank you card!

The two cards were made for two college students who worked for me (at my day job!) this summer. They were such a great help to me that I was really sad to see them go. Somehow bright, colorful handmade cards eased the pain just a bit. :)

Merci Beaucoup - Mama Elephant

I had an ink blended panel kicking around my craft room, that I had made duringΒ  #thedailymarker30day coloring challenge. To make the panel, I blended an assortment of distress inks onto some white 80lbpaper in rough rainbow order. I then added some water droplets which bleached out certain areas and created what looks to me like a nice bokeh effect. I then used a 5″x 3.75″stitched rectangle die to cut two panels from the larger piece.

I used my Mini Misti and Versa Fine onyx black ink to stamp the sentiment from the Mama Elephant Merci stamp set. Then, I attached each panel to an A2 sized card base. I resisted the urge to glue some sequins onto the cards, though I think that might have been a nice finishing touch.
