After almost two weeks of creating gifts and cards for school staff in two different schools, I still needed to make end of year thank you cards for Luca’s teachers. I wanted something simple but colorful, so I pulled out my Abstract Impressions Bundle and Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper and made these!
While I decided to make the cards the same in terms of design, I didn’t want them to be exactly the same, so I decided to go with different colors for each teacher. I borrowed the idea of cutting the butterfly from DSP from this month’s Artisan Design Team projects (see them HERE), and went with shades of pink for one teacher, and blues and yellows for the other!
On the above card, I used Melon Mambo for the middle layer and the sentiment. On the other, I used Pacific Point cardstock for the middle layer and sentiment. The sentiment is actually not from the Abstract Impressions bundle, but from the Petal Palette stamp set. And both cards are embellished with Rhinestone Basic Jewels.
Measurements for this card are as follows:
Thick Whisper White cardstock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 and folded in half)
Middle layer (Melon Mambo or Pacific Point): 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 inches
Whisper White top layer: 3-3/4 x 5 inches
DSP Butterfly: 2-1/4 x 4 inches
Sometimes I like to keep it super simple, and I think these cards are just that! These could very easily be switched up for any occasion just by changing the sentiment. They were also quick and easy to make, so if you need a card but don’t have a lot of time, or need to make a bunch, these would be a great choice!
