Some Thank You Cards

Hi there - hope you're enjoying your week! I'm popping in with some thank you cards for the neighbors who helped me out a lot during covid while I was with my parents.

Supplies: Paper - Bazzill; Paper Studio; 
Momenta Watercolor Prints
Dies - Hero Arts Leaves & Vines Fancy Die
May 2016 My Monthly Hero kit 
A Jillian Vance Design Stitched Dot Rectangle Backdrop
Other - Prima Flower, Parklane gems,
Tea Dye Distress Ink

I picked up the Hero Arts leafy background die when I shopped at JoAnn's last week. Then when I visited Hobby Lobby on Tuesday I found some Prima flowers that coordinate well with it. I added a couple extra leaves I had cut ages ago from the paper layering HA set. The thank you die cut (from a MMH kit) was doubled and shadowed with a darker blue layer. 

Next I made a mini slimline using some new layering dies from A Jillian Vance Design. I used the same thank you die but used a dark blue envelope for my shadow layer - good way to use up those dark envelopes you don't want to mail. I upcycled a Hallmark birthday card my mom received pre-printed from her health insurance company for the blue striped layer.

Supplies: Paper - Neenah & Anchor Paper,
Doodlebug So Much Pun,
upcycled Hallmark card 
Dies - Hero Arts MMH,
A Jillian Vance Design Mini Slimline Backdrop Die Set

Since my leafy got first play today, I'm adding this to Darnell's NBUS Challenge 27. The mini slimline rectangles are also getting their first outing - love them for layering!! Also got some mini slimline envelopes the other day at Anchor Paper so I'm set!

Thanks for stopping and have a crafty day!!
