The first Thank You cards
A long, long time ago in a galaxy far away, I made two thank you cards for some people named "Stephanie". True story! I could have sworn that I had sent these cards two months ago; when I made them! Oops!
I found them recently and took photos. I think that they turned out pretty good. (Let's face it, I like any pink card!)
I did some fun things with these cards and I'm excited to share them with you! I'll start with this blue card. I made this card using a 12x12 sheet of single sided scrapbook paper (Colorbok). I cut it to 8x12 and made a 4x6 card that matches inside and out! I also used my Sizzix Garden Delight alpha die set to cut out the letters on DCWV adhesive card stock. The result: floral, pink, alpha goodness! I slapped a length of $1 bin trim on under the "Thanks" and called it good. I'm a simple kind of girl! Inside I wrote my note and "bordered" my words with more flowers from the alpha set (think dots from an i and !). Voila, it matches!
The second card was more fun! I made a sticker! Woot! So, it was really an accident. See the flower on the top right? I though that the embossing folder was just an embossing folder not a CUTTER! I made do with my new flower by using Cat's Eye Chalk to enhance the image and did the same on the "Thank You" that I also embossed using a Sizzix embossing folder. Inside, I used this die to make an insert to write on and stuck it in the fold. I really should have taken a photo of the inside of this card too! Oh, well!
Hope this makes those of you who harassed me (Laurie!) happy!
