Being grateful for the small things of everyday life is sometimes all we can be. This card is for those times when we need to take in the beauty of a sunrise, a field of wheat, or a stary night sky.
The striped background is made from washi tape Van Gough painting extracts while the sentiment is die-cut using a Creative Expressions Craft Dies by Sue Wilson from her Circle Sayings collection called Grateful from yellow cardstock painted with Nuvo Shimmer Powders.
Using card stock in two shades of yellow for the card base and backing mat, the sentiment (cut twice and glued together) is glued onto the washi tape background while the background and bright yellow mat are adhered with thin foam squares.
A hint of what is to be found inside the envelope – “Find beauty in the small things” from the Alte New Whimsical Flowers & Quotes set – is stamped on the back flap in brown ink.
