Thank You

Have you written all your thank you cards? Have you made any? Time to start crafting your cards if you haven't done them yet. Here is a sample of the type of cards I made for my thank you notes to all my great family and friends who thought of me this Christmas. I started making the card by stamping Hero Arts Japanese doll designs on a piece of thin wood ( I purchased a sheet from BFC) with Versafine black ink. Then I colored in the design with glaze pens (Sakura) and cut out the dolls. I first traced the dolls with a craft knife and then cut out the wood with a scissors so that the wood wouldn't splinter. You could use tan cardstock if you cannot find a thin wood sheet. Next I coated the front of the dolls with a dimensional glaze (Plaid) and let them dry on a non-stick surface. I stamped the words on torn piece of mulberry paper (Mountain Idea). I put the card together with Merikan tape, gluing the dolls down with Fabritac glue. K and Co. lanterns or butterfly dimensional stickers also look good with the Japanese dolls.
