Thanks a Bunch – Black Floral Card

I was shopping at my local craft store when I came across the clearance section. Oh, how I love a good bargain! I came across a small bundle of adorable “thanks a bunch” paper tags in the bin – I think they were made by EK Success. At fifty cents each, I bought the whole bundle of six or so because I figured they would make card-making very easy. I had recently purchased some craft paper I’d wanted to use and the colors in these tags went so well with that paper pack! This card below is just one of a handful of cards I made with these tags.

I inserted an embellished brad into the top of the tag and secured it to the card (kraft paper with the pretty scrap paper on top) and then punched each corner of the card with my nifty new-used corner notching tool and tied embroidery floss around it.

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.

    • Thank you so much! Growing up, I used to draw portraits, landscapes and objects but as an adult, I find that making cards is a more satisfying way to express my creativity. 🙂
