Masculine Thank You Card



This is my attempt at creating a Masculine card, why is that so hard? I don’t know about you but my kid has a group of teacher’s aide and one of them is a guy.

Getting them a little something to say “Thank You” can get expensive, so I got them all a Tim Hortons gift card, who doesn’t love coffee in the morning?

Using the Originals Card Program book, I picked a 4-3/4” x 3” card which is perfect to insert a gift card of any sort. I really loved the cut-out part in the middle.

(P.S. the girls all got flower pot cards)

Flower Pot Cards

I’ve seen these beautiful cards on various blogs and other sites and I just had to make some. This being the end of the school year I’m always looking for gift ideas and great Thank You cards. These next cards were made as a gift to each of my daughter’s dance teachers. I changed the original format to be able in incorporate a 4” x 6” photo as a keepsake for the teachers.

I’ve had these “Prima Flowers” for over a year now and though these would work out well for this cute card project. The flowers are very vivid, this first card is made using the “Whoops-A-Daisy” paper which is also very vibrant. I don’t usually use such bright colours but sometime you need to step out of your comfort zone. The teacher loved it!

This second card is made using the Expedition paper, for one I had the matching flowers and two the dance number was called: “Central Park Zoo”. These were both fun to make.
