Thank You CardSending Many Thanks uses the cute Sweet Li’l Things Designer Series Paper.  The paper is not just for baby cards.  There are several charming images that can be used on a variety of cards.  What is not to like about all these li’l turtles bringing the message?

The card is created for a card sketch challenge for a tall and skinny card.  The dimensions of the finished card front are 3 1/2″ X 5 1/2″.  This same sketch could easily be converted to a standard 4 1/4″ X 5 1/2″ card front.

You may be wondering about the darker strip across the bottom.  I wanted to accent the line by darkening the Tip Top Taupe card stock with Tip Top Taupe ink.  It turned out much darker than I anticipated, but I like it.

The card is simply layered shapes.  No fancy cuts and relatively few supplies.  I could have stopped there, but the Zig Zag embossing folder on the background adds a little depth and it is hard for me to not use my embossing folders on at least one layer on a card.
