I don't know about you, but I am always scrambling for a cute little gift, or card to give someone when they do something wonderful for me or to someone who needs a pick me up.
I decided to create a little pack of Thank You Cards that can be easily tied with a ribbon and gifted to someone. Or even better used at the last minute for a quick appreciation for something nice they did.
I started out with a simple floral stamp from Number of Years stamp set and a nice greeting from One Big Meaning Stamp set. I love single layer cards.
A perfect 4x3-1/2 card for writing a note to let someone know they are appreciated.
Then I decided to step it up with a border.
I couldn't stop there because I am addicted to the linen thread. I love the natural texture and it adds a slight rusticness to the card. Is rusticness a word? Probably not but it fits. I also added a couple of yellow enamel dots to the blue flowers. It really makes them pop.
I contemplated pearls and white ribbon which would also look good.
Wink of Stella painted on the petals would add a nice shimmer.
Another idea would be to change the border to match the colors of the flowers so that there is a variety in the gift pack.
The options are endless.
So easy but super cute. And who wouldn't want a stack of those as a gift. Plus they make up it just minutes.
Pop on over to Jeanna K's for some more great ideas.
