Derby Party Thank You Card



Happy Monday! I'm up on the DeNami Design Blog today!

My husband and I recently attended our first Derby Party. It was so much fun!! I wanted to create/send a handmade thank you note to the party hosts and found the perfect images in my DeNami Design stash! Here’s what I came up with:


I stamped the CL-GD006 Leafy Square onto white cardstock, colored it in with markers, and then die-cut it out with a double-pierced square die. I stamped the horse from the PF25 Farm Animals Stamp Set as shown and colored him in. I die-cut a banner from white cardstock, stamped the sentiment, two roses and leaves, and added color with markers. I attached the banner just below the horse and then adhered this focal point to the front of my card base with foam tape. To finish up, I added a touch of sparkle to all of the images with a clear glitter pen.

Here’s a closer look:


I used the most recent sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch Challenge #172, so I'll be linking this card up to that challenge as well.


I hope you like my card for today! And as promised...here are a couple of photos from the Derby Party.
