I had a blast over the weekend hanging out with my best friend Tasmine. We worked on making thank you cards for her wedding. It has been a year since we made her wedding invites together. I can't believe how the time has flown by. It is always nice when my non-crafty friends want to do a project. When these little projects come up, I finally get to share my favorite hobby with them.
Saturday we went to Michael's and picked up some plain black cards on clearance. They were embossed at the bottom with two lines and came 6 to a package with envelopes included for $0.99! Score! We picked up some American Crafts Silver Glitter Tape, recollections pearls and an EK Success Paper Shapers Layer Punch. On Sunday we got together to actually make all 42 thank you cards. We stamped the couple's initials with some letter stamps by MSE on the smallest layer of the punch shape. Then we put everything else together. My small Xyron sticker maker came in very handy for those little pieces. The $1 pink Revlon tweezer I bought that I thought would come in handy one day with my crafts, really helped me with adhering those tiny pearls quickly.
For the inside of the thank you card, we stamped a castle from an old Stampin' Up! set in Desert Sand Memento Ink and then stamped a Stampin' Up! sentiment over top in black.
We wanted to keep the theme from the original invitations (on a budget) and I think these ended up matching pretty well.
I have been stamping and scrapbooking for several years and love that I can share this wonderful hobby with others. Stamping, scrapping and creating is like art therapy for the soul. I have started this blog so that I can share that therapy with you!
