One of my goals post-wedding is to not purchase a greeting card for one full year, but to make them all instead. I like to think that card recipients feel a little extra special with they get a homemade card for their special occasion. I make my Christmas cards every year and randomly make birthday cards for friends and family members. With all of the wedding crafting I’ve been doing lately, I haven’t had much of a chance to make birthday cards. I did somehow manage to squeeze in some paper crafting time and put together thank you cards for my bridal shower (which I plan on writing a post about very soon!). Here is what I came up with:
The patterned paper is an Amy Butler print and the solid green cardstock is embossed with an embossing folder and my Cuttlebug machine. I also used the Cuttlebug with a two-piece die cut to make the flower. The “thank you” is hand-stamped onto a strip of lilac-colored cardstock paper. All of the pieces were attached to a sheet of folded and cut white cardstock with an ATG Glue Tape Gun by 3M.I cut out everything at once and then put them all together.
This project took me about 3 or 4 hours one evening and I ended up making 36, enough to send to those who attended my bridal shower or who sent us gifts in advance.With less than three weeks until the wedding, I probably could have used the time for other wedding projects, but I needed a little break from all of those and wanted to do a fun craft that didn’t involve anything in our wedding colors.
