Typewriter handmade ThankYou card

Hi Friends,

Just a little post for the day....

A cousin of mine has been blessing us for the last couple of years and to thank her, I made this card.

First I designed a little typewriter and then I cut it with the Silhouette cutting machine. I used white card stock and then painted it red and black. I distressed it a little with a stamp and some glitter. I used Glossy accents on the keyboard with a black background. I used a script stamp on a small piece of white paper and united the two. Then I stitched the pieces of printed card stock together. I like the way the two designs work together in the background to frame the card.

I used white gloss card stock and ran it through my Cuttlebug to emboss it with small flowers. I placed it on top of a piece of red card stock and stitched it together. The ends were cut in a V-shape to form a flag. Come to think of it, it was the American 4th of July last week and I saw the one post after the other on facebook. I think it has definitely influenced my design.

I used a circle cut from card stock with a letter print on it to fit with the typewriter theme. I rolled a couple of red paper roses and embellished with diamante, a button and some other little lovelies.

I also distressed the sides again with my gold pigment ink pad, added a little thank you sticker and Bob's your uncle. I still need to make a little box envelope but will keep it simple.

Hope you enjoy the winter weather here in SA and if you are in a warmer part of the world, have some fun outside!
