A Thank You card and lots of colouring.....

I've had a lovely day practising colouring with my new copics, yep, at last I have taken the plunge and bought a set and I am loving them!! Can feel another purchase coming on soon, well you need to have all the colours don't you?!

I have been asked to make a thank you card for 6 people to sign. I was talking through the options I could do with a star card, then remembered I had a sample card at home which would probably fit the request, not sure what you call this style, but when I took it in and showed my friend placing the order, she wanted my sample.....



You may think it a bit strange to have a bloom on the top of the card, and a ginger cat on top of the box, this was a special request as the recipient of this card has a ginger cat called Hamish who she is very fond of. There is another layer to the cat still to be added, I have added Glossy Accents to it, so it is drying out, already managed to stick my fingers in it once!



I cut 3 pieces of card 20cm square and folded them in half in both directions and diagonally in one direction. Then I stuck the lower diamond of one of the pieces to the upper diamond of another piece, carried out these steps once more to end up with the 3 pieces of card attached to one another. I added some patterned paper to the folded sections of each piece of card on each side, added several blooms to the top face using a large brad to attach it to the card. Thank you was cut using Cricut machine and added to the lower face of the card.



There are 2 blank square on the front and 4 on the reverse of the card which gives each person a section to complete. I've got some flowers punched using the 5 petal flower punch, which I would like to add but will check with my friend to see which way she would prefer it, with or without additional blooms.

Had better be off to bed now, nite nite.....
