CIE Thank You

Hi everyone! Welcome to a Cards in Envy Monday!

In keeping with this season of gratitude, our challenge these next few week's is to make a thank you. I made a card that an SAS4Kids family might give to a special hospital caregiver.

Crate Paper farmhouse; Stampin' Up! cherry cobbler; Recollections black and burlap
Distress Ink pine needles, lightly sanded using SU sander tool
sentiment: computer-generated and inspired by a Kelly Purkey stamp set
SU postage stamp punch; Paper Smooches stitched die
background paper: spattered with DI black soot using a Ranger mini mister and an old toothbrush
stamp border accents and random blotches: heat embossed using Versamark pen and SU copper powder
tag aging with DI wild honey (applied with SU sponge dauber) and DI vintage photo spatters

We'd love for you to play along with us. CIE cards should be flat enough to fit into a standard envelope and light enough to be sent without any additional postage.  :)


  1. Hi Sybrina! Wow! love this gorgeous vintage thank you! Great DP in the background. Have a great day.

  2. HI Sybrina!
    Love that sentiment, it's perfect for that paper line.
    Happy Thanksgiving!
