Hello Friend Thankyou Card

Stamps used in this card are from Hero Arts - CL290 printed Flowers and CL272 All Occasion Clear Stamps. Another card designed for the Hero art Challenge
Start with a standard A5 brown card base.

  • Cut a mat from decorative postal themed paper 10x14cm.
  • Stamp Hello friend from the Hero Arts CL272 All occasion clear stamps in the bottom right corner of the 10x14cm of postal paper. Use Walnut Ink Distress Pad.
  • Stick a piece of scrap distressed paper down the left side - see the pic.
  • Stitch a zig-zag stitch on the sewing machine vertically down the card twice. Use a dark thread and refer to the pics for placement.
  • Stamp and emboss three flowers from the CL290 Printed Flowers stamps onto scraps of brown card and cut out. Put a brown heart brad through the centre of the largest flower.
  • Position the flowers on the decorative mat - see pics again. Glue into place.
  • The postage stamp was cut from a piece of scrapbooking paper but a real stamp looks good too. You can purchase packs of old stamps cheaply from stamp collectors. Stick in place with magic mount.
  • Make an insert from Yes Paper and stamp a flower on the bottom right corner with the Antique Linen distress Ink Pad.

You can purchase this card already made from my store and on etsy.
