Thank You card

Hi Friends ! Hope you are all doing well.

Here the water crisis continues. Temperatures are down a bit but lots of humidity. Well here is a simple thank you card:


The base is blue coloured textured card stock. This looks darker than the actual colour.

I have used three coloured hand made paper, which has an embossed grid on them. I cut out squares out of them and attached it to the card using glue. 

Then I punched out the butterflies-four of each colour from the metallic papers. For making one butterfly, I took one butterfly and attached another one with dimensional tape to give it some dimension. Then I added the crystals. I attached the butterfly to the squares using glue.

I stamped out the sentiment in black ink on a circle punched out of yellow card stock, a thinner one. I sponged the edge with orange ink. Then I attached it to the card with dimensional tape.

Hope you like it.


Materials Used:

Blue coloured textured card stock
Yellow, orange and green Hand made papers
Yellow and purple metallic paper.
Yellow card stock
Butterfly and Circle Punches
Coloured crystals
Sentiment stamp
Black and orange Inks
Dimensional tape and glue.

Friday Free Patterns

Here is today's pattern



It is Sunflower embroidered on a pure cotton handkerchief. 

The base is pure cotton fabric. I have used Pearl cotton threads- single strand through out. 

I first embroidered the edge of the circle using dark brown thread and outline/stem stitch. Then I filled up the inside with Chinese knots using the same thread. 

Then, I used yellow thread to stitch the petals, using lazy daisy stitches, starting from one end and stitching around the circle and ending near the place I started. Note that the stitch anchoring the chain is a bit longer and I left a little space between the stitches.

Then using a shade lighter thread, circled each of the chain stitch, passing through the anchoring stitch of the chain. 

I stitched the stems using stem stitch and the leaves using satin stitch.

Stitches used: Stem, Lazy Daisy, Satin, Chinese Knots.

This pattern can be used on hand kerchiefs, blouses, children's frocks, kurtis or tunics, saris, hand and bath towels, table linen, kitchen linen and bed linen. 

This is the pattern. You have to size it according to your requirement while printing this.


Hope you like this pattern.
