Country Lane Thank You Notes

This Country Lane set in the Holiday 2018 catalog has really had a great workout!  These 3 thank you cards show the versatility and fun with this set.

On the left is a card made by Susan Morrison (you can see more of her work on her blog at  The middle is one I made for Susan (I didn't know she was mailing me a thank you!) and on the right from Julie Clark, love the coloring and the wood designer paper.

Here's a few closeups... Susan used copper embossing, such a great technique that has a wow look and is pretty easy.  Love this linen ribbon and the Country Lane designer paper. 

I also love how she brought the outside of the card to the inside with the jug.  And she stamped the flowers on the envelope so it really carried through the whole thank you.

Here's Julie's... pretty twine, simple add of the designer paper and the use of Blends makes this card pop. Blends are our alcohol markers and give rich depth.  Each color has a light and a dark so creating the 3d look with coloring is easy.

And here's mine (ok yes another silver edged card... I'm nearly out!) and I brought the silver into the card front with embossing. Embossing also makes it super easy to stay in the lines!!  

I hope you like all these cards and they give  you some inspiration to make something and send something. So lovely to get and give real mail.

Happy stamping, MaryKate
