You may have noticed I missed posting last week. I have been traveling for work and simply ran out of time. The ripple impact was that I also did not get a chance to make Thanksgiving invites for the family or special Thanksgiving greetings. I thought that surely when I returned home I would still have time. But, when I called my mother to "check in", she made a rush order card request. Since the final product has to be mailed to her so she can mail it to someone else (I know pretty crazy :)) I went right to work. So what had planned to be an evening of making Thanksgiving cards actually turned into an evening of creating cards that give thanks. Seemed like the true meaning of the holiday to me! :)
The unique thing about this card was the request that it hold a gift card.
Since she requested a Christmas theme and likes bling (you may remember this from a previous post), I stamped the holly leaves with a high shine ink and glittered up the berries. The Thank You is from one of her Bridge Clubs so I thought the theme of Hearts on a regular card would be a nice touch. By adding red glitter to the hearts and letters gave the card additional sparkle.
Give a gift card holding card a try. With the holidays coming up it is a fun way to say Thanks!
May all of you have a blessed Thanksgiving. Jeannette
