This week's Play Date Cafe is a fun one, Color Splash. And the splash of color is perfect for end of year teacher thank you cards: pencil yellow! :) I had so much fun putting these cards together with a combination of really cute stamp sets that are a combination of new and new-like (as in, purchased with great relish but not used of yet...but now they are!!)
My daughter in pre-k has two teachers, so I made two cards that are similar with the same color scheme. I also got to break out my new We R Memory Keepers Sew Ribbon tool and try it for the first time..I love it! Now I want more...
I also got "old school", breaking out the old-fashioned label maker! Kinda fun to do retro...
I added a coffee gift card to the inside of the card, using my new A Pocketful stamp set from WPlus9. I just love that set!
So here are the cards + some detail shots...
