Creative Card: "Thanks!"

My birthday was over the weekend, so I have a few thank you cards to write.  I went through my card stash on Monday and realized that I didn't have any thank you cards (what???).  I decided to "scrap-lift" an idea I saw on Tammy's blog - Scrappy Critters.  (Thanks Tammy!)  I think I will make a few of each of these to send out.  


Materials Used:
  • Standard A2 card 
  • Embossed the front of each using the Cuttlebug "Birds and Swirls A2 Folder" and "Stylized Flower A2 Folder"
  • "Lime Tree" cut at 4.75" from Cherry Limeade
    • attached with pop dots
  • "Flower" cut at 4.75" from Cherry Limeade
    • attached with pop dots
    • saved the flowers from the center and used them to accent the sentiments
    • Used scraps of paper to mat the sentiment
    • Sentiment from Scrappy Moms Everyday Greetings set
    • Tsukineko Pigment Ink: Pearlescent Ivy and Coffee Bean
    • Color Box Liquid Chalk: Dark Peony and Rouge
    • Sakura Gelly Roll Pen - White

    You have to be the ultimate enabler, ever time I see a project that you make with a project you dont have it goes on my shopping list,

    After I saw your adorable winter frolic card set I just had to have that cartridge and that ribbom, i'm still on the hunt for a snowflake cuttlebug embossing folder

    Thanks for the inspiration, Love your projects
