Thank Ewe (version 1)

Two or so weeks ago I started to make the thank you cards I will be giving out for baby gifts given to us. Sure I could buy some (if I could ever find lavender and gray ones…), but making some would be much more fun and a great creative outlet. Since there are going to be a lot I am making, I decided to come up with 5 or 6 designs, then make several cards for each design. This first design, which I am dubbing “Thank Ewe (version 1)”, was more time consuming than I realized because of the sentiment I had to “create” using two different stamps. I either needed to find that sentiment in it’s own stamp, or create different designs, so for now there will only be 2 versions of the “Thank Ewe” cards.

I had a stamp that said “I like Ewe” (from Lawn Fawn’s Critters on the Farm), and one that said “Thanks Friend” (from Lawn Fawn’s Critters in the Forest), so I used tape to cover the parts of the stamp that I didn’t want covered in ink, then inked it, removed the tape, and finally stamped the sentiment on the card. I did that 4 times, but it took so long I knew I wouldn’t want to keep that up! The papers are just from my scrap collection (I was hoping I could find a paper collection with lavenders, but I’ve yet to find one, unfortunately). The lamb is also from Lawn Fawn’s Critters on the Farm, isn’t she darling?!
