Avery Elle - Pastel Thanks
This card started with the Avery Elle Sorbet 6x6 paper pack. The papers in this collection are in softer pastel colors, and would be perfect for a baby card or a spring card. I also grabbed Avery Elle Mint to Be and Pixie cardstock - which matched the patterned paper.
First, I created the card base by cutting a sheet of Avery Elle Ultra smooth pure white cardstock in half. I scored it into an A2 top-folding card (4 1/4 by 5 1/2").
Using my Bigshot, I cut two circles from the pink and mint cardstock, using MFT's Stitched Circle dies. I adhered them at the top of the card. I thought about adding a third circle, but I liked the simple look of just having 2 colors and 2 shapes.
Then I grabbed a piece of mint and pink heart paper from the patterned pack and cut them into 1/2-inch strips. I adhered them to the right corner of the card base at an angle, alternating the colors. I cut off the extra pieces on the side.
For the sentiment, I went with Avery Elle's Many Thanks stamp set. I stamped the thank you in Mint To Be pigment ink.
As a last touch, I scattered some sequins over the two circles.
I think this would make a really sweet baby thank-you card. The pink could be replaced with blue for a boy version. Sorbet pack features a sea-glass color in it as well, which is a light blue color. And there's also a brighter green, which would work great for something gender-neutral.
