For this one virtue is not only the greatest…

Sharing a quick CAS thank you card I made for a colleague featuring one of the fabbie chippies from Make it Crafty.

I took my layout from the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, where I’m right down to the wire to play along.  Also cutting it fine to link up at Color Throwdown where I’ve used their current palette for my colour scheme.  I used three of the colours in the elements of my sketch, adding the black as a border and the white as my base.  Added the final colour silver by embossing the chippie in a lovely silver powder.

I also wanted to play along at the Sisterhood of Crafters so I die cut my two rectangular elements using a stitched rectangle die.  It’s hard to see the stitching on the DP rectangle but it shows up nicely on the white one, although not so much in the photo!

I always think it’s lovely to send a thank you, especially a handmade one.  Unfortunately, I don’t get enough time to add these to my stash of cards (the non-existent stash!) so really glad among the hustle and bustle of Christmas preparations I was able to get a couple of quick CAS thank you cards done.
