A Note of Thanks - Artful INKables


I am just loving the Post A Note set from Artful INKables!! Last week I shared the custom envelope seals and my latest Think INK challenge card using this set, and today I am back with another card. I just love how the set is so versatile.


For the layout, I used Laura's Sketch #51 from the 2 Sketches 4 You challenge blog. The front flap of the card was made from a piece of ShortCuts Frosted Cardstock, which allows you a peak at the blue floral paper on the inside of the card.


For added dimension I paper-pieced the envelope from the main image and some of the small flowers, then adhered them using foam tape. On the back of the clear button is a circle of the patterned paper that is on the inside. Last, but definitely not least, I added some pearls to the center of each of the flowers.
