Thank you Cards…
I enjoy making cards at home. I was running out of my stock and today I decided to make some cards. This was my design with some leftover scrapbooking paper. Sometimes I do use small scrapbooking booklet papers which are the idea size for card making.
I use some stamps, ribbon, and the flower punch. I was able to replenish my thank you note cards stock in few minutes. I simply cut them to the pattern paper to the length of the cards and in various widths so I can layer them to get a funky look. I did use the three dimension stickers to elevate the flowers from the card. I love that look because it adds a subtle drama to the card. And the shadow plays a cool effect on these homemade cards.
I have used them with friends and always received good raving about these cards. I have completely stop buying thank you cards from the stores. I love to send an old fashion note for a gift I received or a service I received. Because I personally think people like to know and it feels good o know that the person who offered the service did a good job or in other words simply like to know the effort was much appreciated.
Again that’s me not everyone feels that way with today’s lifestyle.
