Yesterday, I created a gift box that I had made using the Berry Basket Bigz Die and Acorny Thank You. When I shared my box, I mentioned that I planned to fill it with cards for the recipient and that I would share them today. As I set about creating the cards for the box, I had a thought. My original idea was that the cards inside the box would be perfect for someone to have on hand to use as needed. My thought? Well let me show the notes first and then I’ll explain.
These four love notes all use Acorny Thank You and Into The Woods designer paper. I like the idea of designing a group of cards that are different but similar.
To the Whisper White based and Into the Woods designer paper, I added: bits of Tea Lace Doily; a Blackberry Bliss “thankful” banner from Acorny Thank you; and an acorn from the Into the Woods wood elements.
For the second note, I added: a strip of Into the Woods 3/8″ Cotton Ribbon; a gold Metallic Doily; a Mossy Meadow “thankful” banner; and a leaf from the Into the Woods elements.
To change it up a little bit, for this third note I added: a layer of Whisper White that I splattered with Mossy Meadow ink refill diluted with water; a fine strip of Mossy Meadow cardstock tucked under Into the Woods designer paper; and a Mossy Meadow “thankful” banner.
And finally, for note four I changed it up just a bit more. This time after adding the Whisper White layer, I splattered in Blackberry Bliss ink refill and then diluted it and splattered again to get two tones. Then, I added a thin strip of Blackberry Bliss cardstock to the Into the Woods designer paper and finished with a Blackberry Bliss “thankful” banner.
Now, what was my idea I had while creating?
What do you think of giving someone yesterday’s box filled with these “thankful” notes that have messages inside from friends and/or family? Wouldn’t that be a lovely pick me up? A box full of hugs that can be enjoyed over and over again.
Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
