How about a thank you card for all your Christmas gifts?

The gifts have been given and received, now it’s time for thank-yous! This week, I have a simple thank you card that also works well for other occasions. You can see on the right hand picture, I made one for a bridal shower. So it can be fun or elegant, whatever works for what you need.

I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder, chalk, a Fiskars Edge punch, adhesive jewels, Cotton Candy Stickles & a bright pink Sakura Glaze Pen. Enjoy!


Tags make a great card topper!

If you’re in a hurry to get a card made, consider using a tag for the topper. I hate to be lazy, but anything that covers most of the front of your card is an easy winner :). Think of it, if it is shaped already, it has a certain flair without much work on your part.

You can then ink it around the edges with Ranger Distress Inks,  punch a hole to tie a few ribbons through it, then place a few outline stickers on it, and it’s done!

I found this beautiful tag that you can download from Delicious Scraps! Enjoy 🙂

Recycle while making cards?

All of us love the idea of recycling, don’t we? It’s just the responsible thing to do. While I was looking through various blogs today, I came across an awesome idea by Ferrellgraph-x blog. She made a fabulous greeting card using a soda can!

She simply washed it, of course lol, then flattened it out and cut what she needed, then ran it through with an embossing folder. The results are breathtaking! You can try it for yourself by clicking here —> Recycled Pop Can Card.
