Clothesline Thank You Card


Here is my Clothesline Thank You Card! I have a friend who so generously gives us her sons old clothes for Timmy. These clothes are great and Timmy loves to be wearing "Brett's clothes", it's so cute! This is the thank you card that I made for her. I thought this could also be an adorable baby card with onesies on the line. I'm sure that's going to be my next one, so check back soon!
Here is how I made it:
I scored a 12" x 4-3/8" piece of Bashful Blue cardstock at 4-1/4" in from both sides. This makes the middle section 3-1/2". I then folded it and centered it in the scallop square die on the Big Shot to get my main card shape.

Then I used the 2-1/2" Circle Punch in the center square as far up as it could go. Then I folded over each side one at a time, and used the center as a guide to punch the other two.
To make the airplane I used the Large Oval and Word Window punches. I did not take good pictures while I was doing this, so I will do another one with better instructions. I basically just trimmed each piece a bit to get it the length I wanted. Check back for better directions to come soon!

For the clothes I used the template below and printed it out on Whisper White cardstock and colored them in. The I used twine for the clothes line and the new mini clothespins to keep the clothes on. The twine is attached with Mini Glue Dots and then I used the Cupcake punch to make the clouds and cover them up. The "thanks" is from the Word Play stamp set and just cut into a banner shape.
