2017 Thank You cards

Hi Crafty Pals,

As promised here are the thank you cards I created after the holidays using current product. I did two different kinds of cards in batches so it saves time and I seem to end up with less scraps left over.

The first card (see below) is going to be sent over to my family in England so has to be kept quite flat when it comes to the embellishments or it ends up costing so much to post.

A butterfly birthday – so quick and easy

Hi Crafty Pals,

I have another card to share that I created recently using a piece of super cool Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper from Stampin’ Up!® I was using a sketch as inspiration and only had a short amount of time to create so I made a card with minimal stamping and a few punches.

Birthday card with butterflies and Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper

I really love the bright colours especially as we have had a few dull rainy days in Mississauga recently. I didn’t have anyone in mind when I made this card, but I let my emergency card stash dwindle to next to nothing and plan to start building it up again.

I like to have a few different cards on hand in case I forget someone’s birthday or special occasion. I sometimes make generic cards and don’t add any greetings until I need to use them. Plenty of my card designs can serve as either Thank you’s or Birthdays. I must get cracking on some masculine designs as these are definitely the type that challenge me the most.

Ingredients

Designer Series Paper and Card Stock: Schoolhouse, Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point

Stamp Set: Teeny Tiny Wishes

Punches/Die Cuts: Wonderful Wreath Framelits, Elegant Butterfly and Decorative Label

Classic Stampin’ Pad®: Basic Grey

Hope you like the card and maybe you’ll go bold with some bright colours to chase away the dreary winter days.

Have fun getting inky Melanie
