Gratitude with an Attitude.

Posted on

My daughter Sam needed some thank you cards for friends that had given her Christmas gifts. I wanted to make something feminine, yet young and fun. Here is what I came up with.

  I stamped this butterfly over some gold and ivory patterned paper and then I stamped over that with green ink on a plaid patterned heart. The green rhinestones add that little bit of bling middle school girls love.

This card was for Sam’s friend and  fellow band student. I thought that the musical score (from Stampendous) was a cute tribute to their shared love of music. It is hard to see, but I added purple gems to the scalloped flowers too. The plaid patterned heart can be see on the pink band.

I used a wood grain stamp that I bought at Michael’s Crafts  a while back to stamp the heart shapes I cut out. The stars on the pink band are from the Midnight Feast set from Waltzing Mouse Stamps.  Although the stars come from a Halloween stamp set, they look great on this card too.

I sometimes make more involved and ornate cards but, clean and simple cards are my favorite. These types of cards are quick and simple to make but  the results are still so pretty!

Paper crafting is my Yoga. It takes my mind off any stress that I might have at the time. My daughter loves to get involved in my projects too and it is a great way to connect with her. Sixteen years ago I began scrapbooking but, my new true love is card making!
