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!

I love Z-fold cards! So easy and I always love how they look . These turned out fun! Love the mix of traditional and non traditional Christmas colors.

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!

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!
