Just a Note of Thanks

Sometimes, some of the most stamping fun I have is making these little 3" x 3" mini cards, which I often do for customer thank yous! They are quick and cute for sure, but you can really exercise some creativity to get a pleasing image on a tiny space without a lot of room for gobs of technique and embellishment. Then there is the pleasure of being able to use up bits and pieces of materials that would otherwise go to waste! I combined some pretty diverse elements to make these little 'notes' of thanks (did you see what I did there?) for my last order to go out before Christmas! I wanted them to be elegant and glitzy but not too much work as I prepare to take a bit of a break for about a week surrounding Christmas. Here's a closer look:

  • I made use of bits of leftover Merry Music Specialty Designer Series Paper for the background. I've loved having this sheet music DSP for Christmas cards this year and I hope this is not the only time we'll have some. However, we always have the Sheet Music Background stamp to fall back on, I guess.
  • I love the Black, White and Gold colour palette. So elegant, especially when you throw in some Glimmer Paper! I die cut the treble clefs from the Musical Instruments Framelits from Gold Glimmer Paper backed with Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets to turn them into stickers, easy to adhere.
  • I'm sure you've noticed the little leaf cut outs behind the treble clefs. Those were punched from Whisper White paper with a Martha Stewart leaf punch that I've treasured for awhile. It creates a texture that you can't get from anything else.
  • The sentiment is from the Floral Phrases stamp set, but I've cropped off the ending "to you..." so it would fit on this small space.
I hope you're almost ready for the big day and starting to take some time to enjoy yourselves! What will Santa be bringing you this year? Let me know what you asked him for in the comments below. And don't forget about the year end sale and the Stamparatus Reservation Window still open.  

Merry Christmas!
