Embedded Thanks


I recently made a set of four thanks cards 'on commission'.
The customer does not like frilly and fancy, so I went with embedded die cuts and minimal decoration - and they were a hit.

All four had washi tape to embellish

One had a twine accent

one lace,

and the other two rhinestones as well.

Here is the full set.

My apologies for the brief post, but life is still fairly hectic.

I LOVE these! I don't know why, but the embedding just floats my boat! So cool!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

That embedding is very nice and looks really good with this thick and chunky greetings. Great minimalism! Love that you used washi.
