Thank You Card
Here is a card I made today for my Grandpa. I was struggling with how to make this card because I'm sending it to a guy and I thought it had to look manly. But, then I realized that it's a thank you card and it doesn't matter what it looks like or what sex it's aimed for. I used the pocket full of posies matstack by dcwv. I used a stamp that I got from the dollar stamps at Michael's. I used a sizzix embossing folder from the dots and flowers set in my new sizzix embossing boutique. I love the embossing boutique! It's nice to get a machine that only does what you need it for. I was struggling with whether or not to purchase a sizzix big shot or a cuttlebug because I didn't need a die cutting machine, only an embossing machine. Up till this point I've been getting by with using my pasta machine to emboss with the cuttlebug folders. Let me tell you, the embossing with the embossing boutique is a major improvement!
