Using tags is fun on cards. You may recognize that these tags are made with the newly retired “In Colors”. I had some paper and ribbon left over so I figured I’d use it. The sentiment came from Tin of Cards SS. I popped up each tag with dimensionals. I’m thinking maybe a doily behind the tag or another piece of solid cardstock on a diagonal behind it. What do you think?
Since the cards were already finished I couldn’t add paper behind so I just put one rhinestone on. Perked it up a bit. I think I’m on a rhinestone kick. 🙂
Another quick and easy card using scraps of paper. Think about how you would add to it to make it super. Maybe pearls or rhinestones in the center of each red flower? Perhaps some ribbon?
Well, I opted for some rhinestones. You know you can color your rhinestones and pearls with Sharpies.
I should just call this card the “Retired” product card! I used our retired Top Note die, Another Thank You SS, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and the DSP. As you can see…I’m not letting anything go to waste! Don’t worry…when I finish this series I’ll get back to showing off new products.
Today I am sharing #2 in my series of Thank You cards using scraps. Keep in mind these are quick and easy cards. They all can be embellished to become fabulous. I’m giving you a starting point.
This card is so easy. I’m thinking about adding some bling or little flowers. What would you do to “jazz” this up a bit?
Added just a couple things – ribbon and rhinestones – what a difference!
Not so plain. It’s amazing what a little touch of embellishment can do.
I used the retired “Another Thank You” stamp set for the large Thank You. This is such a handy set for different fonts and sizes of thank you. I carried the same DSP on the inside with a simple message of thanks.
I would LOVE if you would share some of your creations with me. I’ll post them and feature you as my Guest Stamper.
As I have stated…it’s time to clean house and make room for all the new items in this 2016-2017 Annual Catalog! I have a series of five Thank You cards using retired DSP and scraps of DSP. Why is it so difficult for us crafters to throw anything away! 🙂
Here’s some paper that I can’t even remember the name or when it was “in”. I used our wonderful Pansy Punch and worked the paper with my bone folder so that I could split it into two pieces and then adhere them off center. This technique gives such a nice look to the flower. The center is made with the Petite Petals Punch. I also used one of my favorite punches (thank goodness it didn’t get retired!) Decorative Label Punch.
This card is not fancy or was it time consuming to make but it makes a great little “thank you” for inside a customers order.
I did get more creative as I went along. 🙂 You will see in the remaining four posts.
