Mini Thank You Cards

It's my day to post on the a2z Scrapbooking Blog.  I know text messaging is all the rage, but we stampers know the value of an actual card!  These would work for kids to hand to a friend. Maybe I'm dreaming--LOL!

Here are the simple instructions to get this look.  Begin by heat embossing the graphic background stamp (ON SALE in the a2z store) & cut into 2 small panels.  Don't forget to hit the edges with your heat gun to reseal the embossing. Then add circles of colored ink using a foam dauber.  IMPORTANT:  Blot the ink to remove it from the embossing & prevent smearing. Make mini cards (2 3/4 x 4) & use the same ink to color a strip to fit on the left side of the card. Attach the strip & the embossed panel to the card front.  Next stamp the sentiment to match, trim it into a banner & attach it with foam tape toward the bottom.

  17. I adore these cards, and I agree: I'll take a real card over a text message any day! I so wish we could encourage teens to set the technology aside and create, create, create! My prediction: more smiles, more positive attitudes! Your duo here: ultra cool!!
