Pink thank you cards for a gift

 One of our community's families had a new baby girl a few weeks ago and invited all of us to come to a pot luck lunch after her baptism.  I wanted to make them a little gift so decided on cards as the gift.  I laser printed Thank you in several fonts on white cardstock, trimmed them to quarter sheets and embossed them with the CB Swirl frame embossing folder.  I used my hand cut oval stencil to highlight the greeting, trimmed them down a bit to fit on pink card fronts.  I used several different pink inks to coordinate with several different pink cardstock to create a set of eight cards. 
After adhering the embossed layers to my card fronts I embellished them with sequins, clear dots of dimensional paint and a few dots of clear glitter with a gel pen.  Very happy with the way they turned out.  I wrapped them in tissue and tied the package with white fiber.    I have used this sketch before and am seeing how versatile it can be. You can check out these cards I made up for my last card class which use images instead of the large greeting. A few more here with a different set of images.  This set was created using Christmas images.   A mixed bunch on this post!!  A wedding card as well!!  Quite a while back I used if for these cards and these ones too.


A beautiful birthday card which reuses a panel from a commercial card with a large die cut greeting

Birthday cards are essential parts of every card stash so I am making a few of those as well.  For this one I am reusing a panel from a commercial card that was donated to me for use in my cardmaking that features these wonderful glittery poppies!!  I used the other half on this card.  After trimming the image to size I added a red strip to the right hand side and mounted this large element to a green card.  I die cut this large laser printed font greeting with my Nestibilities, sponged the edges in green and added an innie outie bow in pink seam binding before mounting it to my card using 3D foam tape.  A quick and easy card!!             Therese
