One of my lovely coworkers asked me to craft her some thank you cards. This is one of cards I made for her. On of the cards, she requested was for her professor, who loves horses. I started out with giant horse shoe, and hated it. Once I decided I wanted a variety of circles, I loaded up my cricut mat with various scraps of paper. I cut up a couple different sizes of circles, scalloped circles, and horse shoes. I played with laying out the circles on the card until I had a pleasing design. I made a half circle with my circles. Then I made  stitching lines with my white gel pen and sharpie pen in black. A button, hemp, a Tim Holtz Gear, and various brads were added to the circles for extra embellishment. For the greeting, I used black embossing power. I hope you enjoy this simple, and fun card.

I started with a standard A2 kraft card base, except this one was going long ways. Then I layered on two sheets of coordinating cardstock from the Abrianna paper stack. I am not sure the exact dimensions, because I just cut down to what I though looked good. To make the focal image, I cut a scallop at 3 inches in yellow patterned paper and a circle at 2 1/2 inches in cream. On the circle, I embossed two golden butterflies. Then I inked up the edges with Tim Distress Ink in tea dye. Then I used some gold embossing power to emboss the edges. Then inked the entire circle with Tea Dye and Victorian Velvet. Then adhered the circle to the scallop and attached it to the card with pop dots. I used my porcelain alphabet letters to spell out thanks, and then attached some ribbon and bow to finish off the card. I listed my supplies below and I hope you enjoy this card.

Handmade Thank You Nest Card


One of my coworkers asked me to make her some Thank You cards today. I made this one for her and love it so much, I don’t want to give it away. To make this card, I started with an A2 kraft cardstock base. I cut the nest from Give Hoot at 2 1/2 inches. The base layer is brown recollection card stock, the top layer is brown bazzill texture card stock, and the eggs are blue pattern paper from K & Company Abrianna Specialty Paper Pad. I attached the nest with some pop dots. I wrapped some hemp around the card and then secured it with Studio G Polka Dot button. I used some glue dots to attach two blue buttons below the hemp. For sentiment, I stamped Thank You in embossing ink on Ribbon Tag, and embossed it with ebony embossing powder. The banner was attached with pop dots. For the finishing touches, I corner rounder the bottom right corner, added some dashed lines, and used glossy accents on the eggs.  Hope you like this card.

Mustache Thank You Card

Mustache Thank You Card

Handmade Mustache Card

Here is a great masculine card that any man would be excited to get. I used the fit to length button to get all this mustaches to look the same size. I cut all three mustaches at 3″ fit to length. I cut them all in black and then shadowed them in Bazzill bitter chocolate. For the designer paper, I choose a piece of Argyle Card stock from Me and My Big Idea Renee Argyle Green. I thought this design looked circus-esq and fit well with the mustaches. Layered the designer paper onto a piece of dark red paper and then attached cooper eyelets in each corner. I adhered all the mustaches down. Then I stamped Thank You on a little banner I cut out. I attached the banner with a brad. For the last step, I adhered the layers to a blue A2 card. Hope you like this playful masculine card.

Another Cute Use for Your Ribbon Scraps

Another Cute Use for Your Ribbon Scraps

I saw how to make these super cute ribbon emblishments on okakuku’s Youtube Channel. This is a great way to use up your ribbon scraps, and make adorable embellishments. Unlike the video, I used my hot glue gun to make this button and ribbon embellishments. The butterfly patterned paper is from the garden party stack and are 2 inch squares. The brown card stock squares are  cut a 1 1/2 inch. The cream paper is a one inch square. The metal letters for the sentiment, I got at Michael’s. They were intending for use in making your own stepping stones.  Hope this inspires you to make some cute embellishments.

I made this thank you card for my husband’s grandparents. They love teddy bears. The purple bear is suppose to be his grandma, because she loves purple. The pink bear is his grandfather, because he loves pink. I love the bow tie. The tie is from the Kitty accessories on the Create a Critter cartridge. Hope this inspires you to make a thank you card today.
