Thank you card

Hi Everyone!

I have one card to share with you before I rush out to teach a cardmaking class.  I am very excited about some mini envelope templates created by JudiKins that I purchased at Absolutely Everything in Topsfield, MA the other day when MaryBeth and I were out shopping.  A few people who know me know that I love "mini" things and that's why these templates caught my eye.  They're made of plastic so they can be used over and over again. 

I decided to use the gift tag envelope on my card.  I traced and scored the template onto a sheet of SEI frost paper from their Winter Song collection, cut and folded what I had traced and created an adorable mini envelope.  It reminds me of the envelopes from The Jolly Postman which used to be one of Marie's favorite books.

Cut a small piece of white tag and used a Stampendous "Thank you" stamp to stamp my message onto the tag.  Then I ran the white tag through a Cuttlebug dotted embossing folder.  I used a couple of markers to highlight some of the raised dots on the tag.   

Cut a piece of SEI flurry kisses from their Winter Song collection to use for the layering paper on my white card.  I used a Martha Stewart punch to add some fun to the red and white checked side of the paper.  And that's it!  A cute card made in a very short time!

Off to teach some adults some papercrafting tricks! 

Have a great day!
