May Thank You

About one year ago, I thought it would be nice thing to add (or send) a hand made "thank you" card to every customer that places an order.  I really enjoy the time it takes to create something special each month and I use a post-it note inside, so the card can be used again.  It's my way of giving each customer a little "gift" as a thank you for ordering.  I create cards as I receive orders, so some months every customer might receive a different card.  This month after seeing an idea on the blog Inking Idado (see link on right side bar), I came up with this sweet little card that five of my customers received.  It measures 3" x 3".  I used the largest scallop square on the double square die to make the base of the card out of Chocolate Chip CS.  I then took a white piece of card stock that was 3" x 3 1/2", scored it at 1/2" on three sides and adhere it to a 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" piece of Regal Rose.  This was then adhered to the Chocolate Chip scallop square.  The little inside card measures 2 3/8" x 2 3/8".  Staple a ribbon to the top egde and stamp the greeting.  The front was decorated with four 1" x1" squares rounded on two opposite corners.  Sorry the paper I used is retired, but I thought this was a great way to use some of those little scraps of designer series papers I can't bare to throw away!  Two small punched circles and a brad were added to the center for a finishing touch.  Pretty cute!

Hope you like it and for those of you who placed an order in May....Thank you so much!

  1. These little thank you cards are adorable. Is the white piece behind the card (with the matching designer paper strip) the envelope? Did you buy 3x3 envelopes, or make your own? I think it's wonderful that you send thanks cards to each person who orders. It's too bad I'm already a demonstrator, because I would LOVE to be your customer!
