Customers make us who we are! With that said, I always include a thank you card with each customer's first order. The recipient of this was no exception and on top of it all she's a lovely, creative lady who I enjoy crafting with!
Again with the fiddling - I knew that I wanted to use a SOTM (sneak peek) and that I also wanted to use one of the sets I bought because I wanted it, but that I hadn't used. This set takes me back to my very first days with CTMH. What can I say, we met and fell in love.
They compliment each other so well when I use the flourishes as a flower backing the typewriter. If you look really closely, the flourish on the bottom left and the top right are rock n rolled with Twilight and Gypsy ink. Always ink light first, dark second.
For the front of this card I went to town with foam adhesive. To achieve more than one layer, I simply double-stacked the foam adhesive. I couldn't live without this stuff.
I also brought the patterned cardstock inside the card and used a masking technique for the peek-a-boo flourishes.

Don't go away yet a few exciting things to talk about! This month, with a minimum order of $55 CAD, you can get one of two chevron ribbon rolls for free! Ribbon gives such beautiful dimension to any card or layout and you can use it so many ways.
Secondly if you qualify for this it means that you've hit a minimum of $50 to qualify for this month's SOTM - Home for the Holidays. Most of the images are paired up with CTMH's Art Philosophy Cartridge so you don't have to fussy cut the shapes yourself.
The nights have been nippy but the frost hasn't stayed - here's hoping for at least a few more warm days!
