I remember back in the day when I watched cartoons and when I read Calvin and Hobbes comic books. Calvin wrote a ransom note once to Susie, saying he had her doll and wanted something in return. In an effort to keep himself anonymous, he cut out letters from magazines to form the words on his note.

I used that same principle here and I had a ton of fun with it!

I know it's not the best photo, but I gave it away before I had a chance to take a better picture.

My husband gives me input on nearly everything I make. He's able to tell me instantly if he can see what I intended to accomplish, if something is easy to read, or if just looks... off... in general. This card was one that he definitely helped with.  Without the small print behind the sentiment, even with the "THANKS" raised on foam, it still wasn't immediately easy to read. When I added the small print strip in the middle behind the sentiment, he agreed it's easier to see that it’s a thank you card, not just a random card.

I did a lot of projects like this growing up, to inspiration boards, to collages, to letters to friends. It felt like a blast to the past.
