Thank You Cards

     The cards I'm showing you today were done for a commission.  One of our local elementary schools has a Parent/Teacher association which is very active and does a lot of fund raising to cover the cost of school supplies which can no longer be purchased within the school's budget.  They wanted some thank you cards they could sent to people who sponsor and support their fund raising.  They gave me a digital image and I made a dozen "thank you" cards, using the colors in the image.  They are all similar but none are exactly alike.  I only photographed 4 of them.


     I did embossing on half of them and left the others more plain.  The ribbons all came from my stash, most of them from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  I also added the Sentiment "Thanks for Your Support" before printing each image.  I cut the images with a plain circle die and then cut a plain circle mat from red CS for each one.  Really CAS but these have to be mailed so simple and flat seemed best.

  13. Beautiful thank you notes! I especially like the dry embossing. I like the addition of texture. The red and white is always appealing to me. I love the crispness it provides. Thanks so much for joining the White and One Other Color Challenge at the Addicted to Stamps Challenge Blog!

  14. These are great and I am glad they see your talent. These are wonderful CAS cards and yet classy and they should know how individual and handmade they are. PTA fundraising is very hard.
