Tailored Fresh Pears

Today I’m sharing with you the thank you cards for my Birthday gifts. It’s been awhile since I pulled out the Envelope Punch Board and I sure have missed it! It’s so fun making envelopes to match your cards. Here’s a set of 6 cards with envelopes that only use 2 sheets of cardstock and 2 sheets of Designer Series Paper (DSP), along with some scraps of neutral. The card bases are cut 3” x 8” and scored at 4”. This adorable size requires a 6” square piece of DSP to make an envelope. So, we’re using one full piece and half of the second for the envelopes. That leaves half a sheet to cut front layers. These cards feature some retired products, but I just love pears (especially Anjou!) and wanted to use the lovely Fruit Stand DSP.

Colorful Smiles

I am so glad I decided to get the Color Theory Suite on pages 146-147 of the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog. The colors and designs evoke a colorful calmness. So what better way to send a little Thank You note than with a relaxing drink and a lounge chair? Hunter selected Berry Burst and I decided to add a touch of Crushed Curry pop of Basic Black and I think it’s a lovely color combo! The new Mini Dimensionals are awesome – I used one little one on each drink to pop it up. So nice to not have to cut a regular size Dimensional into smaller pieces!

A Little Old, A Little New & A Little Carry-Through

My club order arrived today and I always put a little thank you card in with each order. I thought it would be fun to make little 3” x 3” square cards and have a little old (Watermelon Wonder Cardstock & Ink, Tasty Treats Specialty DSP), a little new (Wood Words Stamp Set, Wood Crate Framelits), and a little carry-through (Whisper White Bakers Twine, Pear Pizzazz Ink). I crack myself up with my rhyme! These 6 adorable cards only took 20 minutes to make and I can’t stop smiling when I look at those stinkin’ cute little strawberries I added to the envelopes, too!
