Thank You Card

I recently had surgery and wanted to create some thank you cards to give to all those who were so thoughtful of me and my family while I was down.  I also got a new embossing folder and these thank you stamps and wanted to use them. This is what I came up with.  My stamp platform made making a bunch of these so easy!    I love it!

Christmas Jar Tags

I LOVE how this turned out.  I still need to add some twine on my tag, but LOVE it.  On the back I did a print and cut that says "From our house to yours" and then our names.  I think these will look so cute on our neighbor gifts.  So much fun!  This was modified from a file from My Scrap Chick.  Instead of a card, I just made a tag.  So fun!   I don't remember what stamp set my Merry and Bright came from, but it was a perfect fit on my tag!

Thinking of You Cards

What do you do after you have had surgery and you can't lift or do anything for a few weeks?  Well, you make cards of course.  I recently got some new embossing folders and was watching some youtube videos on different ways to use them and one of them was to ink them.  Since I had never tried that, I gave it a try.  I decided that using a brayer works better when your pattern is smaller and close together.  When the pattern is farther apart, the brayer made marks in the white space.  Still pretty, but a lesson none the less!
