All A-Twitter, Thank You Cards

From my April Counterfeit Kit, a thank you card for a bag full of baby gifts–everything from books to a blankie–for one of T’s coworkers.  And one for a neighbor family down the street, for a Major Saver card they gifted us during my bedrest (yeah, I’m very behind on this one!).

Variations on a theme…  It is easiest for me to cut one sheet of 8.5×11 into 2 cards and just make 2 that are exactly the same, or at least similar, so that’s what I did!  I think I like the first one best–that pop of aqua picks up the aqua stripes in the paper and I think it looks a bit more festive.  The white flowers are almost too stark, I would probably do those in another color if I redid these.  Used my Cuttlebug machine and Sizzix dies, went all old school.  ;-)

Baby Thank You Cards!

I had some time to scrap today and took the opportunity to catch up on some overdue cards.

Started with some circus font stamps, a few fun color schemes using AC zing embossing powders, and my favorite, kraft cardstock. Spelled out ‘THANKS’ in three different colors.

Added strips of vellum and a strip of fun ribbon…

Then a matching stamped sentiment…

And a knot of colorful coordinating ribbon…

These were fun, and turned out okay, even going in without a plan!
