Bold Thank You

A couple of months ago I donated some cards to Senior Life Resources Northwest/Mid-Columbia Meals on Wheels and told them to give me a call if they needed more. On Monday I got a call from Natalie Huggins asking if I had any cards I could donate. The most needed cards are thank you, but they also use get well and sympathy. Sadly, they said they couldn't accept any cards that talked about prayer. I get that you have to be sensitive to clients personal beliefs, but to me prayers are what see you through the touch times. In any case I went to work creating simple cards for our local senior citizens and those who serve them.

I went through my stash of sympathy and feminine thank you card to give them, but I needed some that could be used for the masculine community. For most I used patterned paper and some large die cut sentiments.

These two cards used two patterned papers and Altenew's Bold Caps Alphabet Dies. The word "thanks" barely fits on a landscape card. I cut the letters from one patterned paper and added sticky back foam to each for dimension. The other patterned paper was cut to fit the card front. However, for the second card I didn't have enough to cover the entire card front, so I added a strip of dark green and stamped the secondary sentiment there.

They were easy to create and turned out nice.
