Cottage Garden Thank You Cards

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

The weekend is here. I hope you have something nice planned. Now we are back from holiday we need to get on with sorting things out. The spare room has to be ready for the rabbits in September. We are looking after our daughter's rabbits while she and her new husband go on Honeymoon. By putting the Honeymoon off for a few weeks they saved quite a lot of money. One thing we will be doing is taking the wedding dress to be cleaned I didn't realise that is would be so expensive.

I wasn't sure whether to share these cards or not they are a bit simple. Since the wedding I have been struggling with my card making I just don't seem to be very focused. I needed some cards to say thank you for some of my leaving presents.


I used two dies one was the Cottage Garden die that came with issue 149 of Papercraft Essentials Magazine. The other was a thank you die that I got free with a magazine sometime ago I can't now remember which one - sorry.  


The Cottage Garden die is very pretty and it gives a lovely lacy effect. The thank you die seems to match it quite well. Both dies cut well. 


I made the card in two colours ways. It would be easy to adapt to other colours, I did decorate the flap on the envelope with a die cut. 


I will post these cards to the recipients next week. 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

  10. Hi Jackie, these thank you cards look stunning. I love the dies and you would think that they were from the same set as they do match perfectly. I am not surprised you are struggling with cards at present all the work you did for the wedding, maybe some time out needed?. Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Hugs Jennifer xx
