2022 May 20 MTTC #482 Theme is Thank You

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! A terrific occasion greeting card to have available is a thank you appreciation card. That's the theme for My Time To Craft challenge blog competition #482. For my design team commitment for MTTC I have created 2 cards. Both have most of their supplies coming from the TGSB April 2022 kit that I put together Easter weekend. My planning and prep intentions were to have enough supplies to make several cards and a possible TN spread for commitments ranging in a 4-6 week span. Already this weekend I've made 5 cards!!! 

The planning and prep time for the kit took longer of course than what it typically does for 1 or 2 cards but once it got made, I've been able to get cards made quickly. Yea! Win-win!! 

MTTC's #482 starts May 20, 2022 and ends on June 2, 2022. Times for both dates are the same so figure accordingly to wherever you are in the world (6am UK or 12am Central Time USA/Chicago). 

Thank You floral with gingham card:

Design and vendor notes worth mentioning are:

A. Embellishments and pink cardstock for the sentiment strip were not in the TGSB April 2022 kit. The stamper for "thank you", floral paper scrap, the blue gingham paper was cut to fit, the ribbon, and the flat base blue cardstock were.

B. Blue gingham paper (Hot Off The Press/Paper Wishes website)

C. Papers were edged using a blue ink pad 

Green and blue geometric thank you card:

Design notes for card #2:

All items for this card were from my kit made Easter weekend for TGSB April 2022 except for the green cardstock scrap, the little planner strip sticker with the heart (the heart was white so I filled with dark blue marker and then topped with a lighter blue glitter paint pen), and the navy blue glitter decorative tape. I like the analogous color scheme of this card. 

Both cards are slimline style: 4" x 7" and each use the sentiment 'thank you' but with different stamps. Fairly simple and easy to put together with not a whole lot of fuss. I wanted the patterned papers/cardstocks to not get covered up. Now to get ready for the mail....

  1. What lovely cards Becca - they are both so very pretty

    1. Thanks! Trying to let the mix of prints be as visible as possible! At the time I made these, the combination of colors and patterns for each one just appeared refreshing to me.

  2. Becca I love them. All the layers and textures are fantastic. And the colour combinations you've chosen are great. As always, you've created two different cards that are perfect for the topic. Hugs, María.

    1. Thanks, Maria!!! I appreciate you stopping by my blog!

  3. Such pretty cards! It's amazing how changing papers can create such different looks!

    Thanks for joining us at Little Red Wagon this week!
