Thank You Card – For A Male

Hi everyone hope you’re doing well.
Today I would like to show you a thank-you card that CJ asked me to make for a friend of his.
When CJ turned 16 on the 24th of August, a friend gave him a one year subscription for the magazine, “Popular Mechanics”!
CJ’s friend, uncle Wiaan also loves horses and rides on the same farm as CJ. He always helps CJ. So CJ asked me to make him a Thank You Card.

Here is my card
I made photos corners out of red paper and stuck it in the card’s corners.
I also put a strip of ribbon behind the stamp.

I used one of my Whiff Of Joy Stamps called “Henry Mouse with large teacup” since he is just so cute!
My mother helped me to stamp this stamp so that you don’t see the Christmas leaves on the teacup.
Here is how:
1. Inked the stamp
2. Then cut double sided tape to fit over the leaves and stuck it onto the stamp over the leaves;
3. Stamp the stamp on your paper and that should do the trick!

I coloured it with the following Promarkers:
Sandston – for little Henry’s body
Blush and Dusky Pink – for his tummy, ears and tail
Henna – for the chair Henry is standing on and the Hot chocolate
Rose Pink – For the marshmallows
Berry Red – for the teacup
Cool Gray 1 – for the steam coming out of the teacup and the shadow around the stamp

I wrote a sentiment, “Sweet Thanks”, since the mouse throws marshmallows into the hot chocolate.
I stuck it on pop-ups and placed it in the bottom, right hand corner.

I stuck photo turners in the corners of the square.
I also took part in the following challenges:
