Thank you cards

I had a couple of thank you gifts to give to friends and wanted cards for the group to sign. Both of the friends the cards are going to are the "crafty" type so it's fun to create for them!




To save time both cards have a similar design. I have a layered base, with a left hand border, then layered bling flourishes, flowers and a butterfly accent. The one on the right needed a bit more so I raided the silk plant off my shelf for a couple of leaves as a filler.  The sentiment was simple, a message stamped out on strips of paper and tucked under the flower with glue dots. To finish it off, I added an extra touch of elegance with a punched edge on the envelope. (I had to make my own to accommodate the chunky embellishments.) 

Supplies used: Cardstock- paper adventures, patterned paper-GCD Studios Brave Girl collection, Ink- ColorBox, bling flourishes and flowers and prima, butterflies-altered chipboard embellishments GCD Studios, Glitter flourish border-GCD Studios, Flower ribbon trim-May Arts (Satin Cutout), leaves from my silk plant ;) Additional tools-Score Pal , Fiskars Apron Lace border punch.

Both gals loved their cards, and my "happy crafty moment"-one of them has her's on permanent display at her house. I love it when people really not only appreciate what I make them, but love it as well! It's good medicine for my crafty heart!
