If you've been reading any of my past blogs, you will notice that I have a lot to be thankful for and I have a lot of people in my life who I feel deserve a big thank you. I've decided, because I have so many great resources at my fingertips every day, to make my own cards! While, I certainly could use a stamp that says "Thanks" or "Thank you," I think it might be nice to put the person's name on the card as an added personal touch and I've determined that the Build a Set Uppercase Alphabet (see at right) will help me with this project! Gelatins has a decent selection of alphabet clear stamp sets. I particularly like that the letters aren't just solid or outlined letters, but they have stripes or checkers - BONUS!! There is also a Build a Set Lowercase Alphabet (see left) that I'm thinkin' I'll need to use. My mom's friend recently gave me a bread machine because she had a few extras that she didn't need and she knows that one of my passions is cooking (or even moreso eating!). I still owe her a thank you note and I think it would be fun to make the card myself and also bake some bread! If any of you have any ideas about what kind of bread to bake, let me know!!
Build a Paisley Floral
I think for the front of the card I might use the Gelatins Build a Paisley Floral. I love paisley designs anyway, but the great thing about this one is that there are superb floral patterns within each shape!! I plan to get colorful cardstock (perhaps from Hero Arts) and then use different colored ink pads to stamp paisley floral designs on the front. I'm really excited about this new endeavor, actually. I love surprising people with small gifts or anything that may help to brighten their day : ) I also just decided that it might be cute to use the dotted paisley shape as an outline on the back of the card for a "made with love" or "made by" tag! I may even add pearl or gem embellishments!! Huzzah!
I highly encourage all of you (who are so kind to be reading this!) to go make thank you cards of your own!! Have a fantastic day and happy card-making!
