Since my birthday was a few days ago, I knew I would have to be making a lot of thank-you cards, so I decided to do one for my example to the "Add Texture Challenge" by ScrapbookerPhD. This is my first challenge example as a member of the design team, and I am super excited! Since we are moving, most of the crafting supplies had been packed away, so I had limited tools to make this card.
First, I started with adding some texture to some plain green paper with a Cuttlebug, using a heart patterned embossing folder. I got the cute squirrel image from Some Odd Girl's digital stamps, and printed it out on printer paper, colored it in, and cut it out. I cut out some strips of orange, and a colorful patterned paper, then made a tag to put my sentiment on. I inked the edges of my tag, then stamped on "thank you!" as the final touch.
