I noticed the other day that my stash of Thank You cards was getting pretty low and, just in time, this DOTM showed up from Imagine That! Along with the sweet calf image, there are sentiments and one of them was perfect for adding to my stash of Thank You cards. :-D
I colored with ProMarkers and gel pens, then cut the image with a die from Tattered Lace. The die is actually made for cutting a shaped card so it has a blank space at the top without any cutting, but after cutting once, I turned the piece in the die and cut a second time so that I had a complete circle.
The sentiment is cut with an Unbranded die and the bottom corner of the flocked paper was cut with a Poppy Stamps die. The corner die also embosses but that doesn't show up very well on the flocked paper. I used a craft knife to distress the edges of the flocked paper but it's very heavy paper and the distressing doesn't show up very well in the photo. I didn't want to cover any more of that gorgeous Doodlebug paper so I let the design and the die cuts be their own embellishment.
Hope your week is going well and that you can find some 'down time' just for you. :-D Happy Crafting. NanaConnie
