Special Thank You Cards

My husband's grandmother passed away last week.  After a rainy weekend of funeral arrangements, I sat down to make some special thank you cards for some special people.  Some people really go out of their way to help during those difficult times and sometimes those general thank you cards you get at the funeral home just don't say enough.  I used my Jasmine cartridge to create the sentiment for these thank you cards.  The sentiments were cut at 2.5 inches each.  I used some precut cards.  I really liked the ones with the scallop border.  I also really like the paper I used for these cards. It is from Me and My Big Ideas and is part of their specialty cardstock collection. This cardstock has lots of nice effects.  Some of the paper I used had raised flocking.  I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch to create accents for the cards.  I also had some glittery vellum accents and paper flowers in my stash that I embellished with pearls and sequins to create a nice touch.  I stamped an additional "thank-you" sentiment on the inside of each card to complete this project.  I think the cards turned out perfect!! Thanks for looking and have a great week!    Patty
