That doesn’t sound good does it? Sounds like I’m about to sneak behind the back of the tank-stand for a ciggie doesn’t it, lol? What I’m trying to say is that I’ve had my Thinlit Card Frames out today playing with the longer card lengths. These are a couple of the cards I did when I first received the Thinlits.
These are the cards as per the Thinlits – the original cardstock size is 6¼” x 5½” – then has an inch fold just off the left-hand center line. For me, the only thing missing was somewhere to write on the card.
That was until I was shown an alternative that takes the card from still looking the same…
Yet when it’s opened it’s just so much bigger… yeah baby!
The right-hand side folds over on top of the other side where the DSP would normally go thus allowing an area to write a little something for the recipient. Problem solved – YEA!
Having spent what seemed like hours working on the above card as the colors are TOTALLY out of my comfort zone – So Saffron and Tangerine Tango both of which are on a sheet of the Watercolor Wonder DSP – I rewarded myself with something more familiar to me… PINK!
The black and white of the Modern Medley DSP with the pink of the Strawberry Slush Cardstock compliment each other so very well. Plus it gave me an opportunity to test-drive a flower from both the Petite Petals Stamp Set and from the Flower Shop Stamp Set.
Both of these sets I LOVE so I’ll give you the heads-up right now – you’re going to see a LOT more of them! 🙂 Layering them and adding a rhinestone only added to this new love affair.
This is the inside of the card.
This second card was NOTHING like I set out to achieve but the end result far exceeded anything I’d planned. Sometimes you can get lucky!
