Easy Thank-You Notes
I had some Stampin'Up! white note cards (they are 5" by 3 1/2") and needed to send out some thank you notes from Averie. Summer has just been crazy busy and my kids don't go back to school until September. So, easy it is baby.
I ran the front flap through my Cuttlebug with this dry embossing folder. Then trimmed 1/8 th off the bottom and the top. I trimmed 1/2 inch off the side of the front flap. Then, cut a strip of designer paper from the Darling Doodles Double Sided DS Paper from Stampin Up! to fit down the side. I adhered the entire white note card on a piece of Purely Pomegranate card stock.
I stamped the round thank you stamp from the Think Happy Thoughts Set onto Groovy Guava card stock with Purely Pomegranate ink. Punched it out with my 1 1/4 inch circle punch, layered that on a piece of Purely Pomegranate card stock punched out with my 1 3/8 inch punch. Next, I had a note card that I ran through the Cuttlebug (and ruined) so I used my 3/4 inch circle punch and punched out some of the embossed circle flowers. I glued that in the center and added some designer paper with my 1/4 inch circle punch to some of the centers. Then, I added two SU! dimensionals to the back.
I took the 1 3/4 inch circle punch and punched about half way into the front flap. Close the flap and then stick your circle just over the punched out part. Because of the dimensionals, it's raised just enough to keep your front flap closed. Sentiment inside is from the stamp set In My Thoughts from Stampin'Up!
I'm so proud of Averie... she signed each one by herself. She left out the r in her name on a few, but hey, she did it and was super excited to sit down and thank everyone.
Have a super rest of the week and a fun weekend!! I register Sheldon (my oldest son) in HIGH SCHOOL tomorrow morning. I can't believe he's going to be a freshman. I think he grew at least two inches over the summer and is officially the tallest person in the house.
Thanks for stopping by!!!
