More Thank You Cards

     I'm working on the next batch of Thank You cards for the parent volunteers of the PTC to give to all the teachers at my grandson's school.  My daughter is the group President this year and has asked me to make 45 cards for the luncheon given by the parents to honor all the teachers at the end of the school year.  I finished the first dozen a couple of weeks ago, posted a photo of one of them, forgot to photograph the rest of them before giving them to my daughter, and now I've started on the next batch.

     Here's some of them:





     All are very CAS and each one is done with some kind of die cut.  I used dies from Memory Box, Die-namics, and die-Mensions.  Within the group of teachers there are five men and the rest are women so this time I focused on making sure there were some masculine cards among them.  I had already done two other masculine cards in the earlier batch.

     Future cards can be a bit more feminine but I'll still be using the same die cuts and basic ideas.  Each card will be different but I'll use the same CAS style for all of them.  These are fast and easy to make; the time comes in making all the die cuts and choosing the papers.  But it's a fabulous way to use up lots of those scraps that are living in my bits and pieces basket.  :-D

Yikes! That's a lot of cards to make! Each one of these are so pretty though and what a wonderful idea to give to the teachers. Love that die cut you used for the thank you too.

Beautiful work, but I don't envy you coming up with so many styles, but know you are VERY capable to do it.

Fantastic collection of Thank You creations. Love them all, especially fond of the blue and that plaid is great the masculine persuasion. Did you received the post card from Colombia?
Have a fab evening.
