30-Day Gratitude Card Challenge: Day 9

Welcome to Day 9 of my 30-Day Gratitude Card Challenge! This is actually my card for yesterday. I wore myself out cleaning and organizing again, and didn't get a card made. (It was that kind of detail stuff that takes hours, and that no one ever notices but you, but it will drive you crazy til you get it done. *sigh*) For this card, I created the physical one first, then had to set about trying to figure out how to recreate it in My Digital Studio. After creating the background digitally, I realized I wanted it layered, so I saved the whole thing as a photo and brought it back in that way. I really like this design because it's neutral, but also because it looks like you are giving someone a blue ribbon prize :-)

The PDF download has two identical cards on an 8-1/2"x11" sheet, and does not have my watermark on the card images. Just print out the PDF at 100%, then cut the sheet in half. Fold each half over, and you'll have two foldover cards :-)
Here is the physical version, it's a little more rough-textured with all the Basic Gray sponging. I made score lines across the card stock with the Simply Scored Diagonal Board, then folded it over and sponged lightly on the edge of each score line. I didn't bother to reink my Marina Mist ink pad for the background images, because I sort of wanted a little of that break through of white:

If you need envelopes to fit half-sheet foldover cards, I recommend one of the following:
Whisper White Medium Envelopes (40 env) for $6.50
Very Vanilla Medium Envelopes (40 env) for $6.50
Crumb Cake Medium Envelopes (40 env) for $6.50

Would you like to join me in sending out Thank You cards? Let me know by commenting on my 30-Day Gratitude Card Challenge post, and on top of the warm fuzzy feeling you'll get, you may win a special prize!
