Make it - Mixed Media Thank You Cards

A6 water colour style "Thank You" cards. 

To watch the tutorial on how to achieve this beautiful water colour style background please click the image below.

Today we're doing something a little bit different and making some A6 "Thank You" cards using Neocolor II water-soluble wax pastels. These cards are a nice colourful artsy style and are also very quick and easy to create. Perfect to make and keep on hand for whenever you need to send a thank you or a quick note of appreciation to someone.

The Neocolor II water soluble wax pastels are available in sets of 10,15 and 30.

Floral Fantasia

Hi there
My turn this time to give you some inspiration.
This card was made using The Floral Fantasia CD available to buy HERE.
 I printed off and cut out all elements needed. I die cut two of the Broderie Chantilly die from Tattered Lace and attached one to the base of the card and one to the decoupaged base layer. I made up an 8"x8" easel card in olive green card, attached the layer of small flowers to the base using 3D foam pads so this became the stopper for the easel. Decoupaged all the layers of the flowers and attached to the easel . Finished of with a Happy Anniversary sentiment and pink rhinestones and glittered the flowers.
To see more of my cards I have made from Kraftyhands cd and all other cards I have made please go to

Till the next time.

Pirate Island

Hi there
This time I have used a decoupage set from the Pirate Island cd, this is great for kids birthdays and as it is a double cd on the 2nd cd it has all that you need for the kids parties e.g party invitations, bags etc.
I printed of all elements needed and cut them out. I folded an A4 sheet to make a A5 card and attached the base layer, I then used 3d foam pads to decoupage all the rest of the layers. I cut out the 3 sentiments and attached with 3d foam pads, to finish of I put glossy accents on the rope ends and the eyes of the captain and pirates.
This cd can be bought HERE.
Till the next time.
