Saying thank you.
Expressing gratitude has always been such an important value to me. Whether it is through a verbal acknowledgment or written one, extending gratitude and a word of thanks is such a powerful thing.
I had the chance to work on some thank you cards the other day, and I wanted to share a few of the fun ways I used cards from the Heidi Swapp Stationery collection to help me say what I needed to say and do what I wanted to do! I absolutely love this collection because the cards are SO beautiful, the accessories perfection and when it all comes together…it’s just magic! Truly in NO time at all you can have beautiful customized cards ready to go for any and every occasion.
If you are familiar with the collection you know that the Stationery does not just include cards. There are gorgeous envelopes, liners and then of course….extra embellishments which make all of us paper lovers extremely happy!
For instance, these Buzz Words are everything! They are perfect for adding onto cards, onto envelopes or on the inside of cards (since they are blank inside) to help us say just what we need to say.
One of my favourite cards is this ‘Merci’ one. I love the floral art and the delicate handwritten message.
I love to use my We R Memory Keepers Typecast any chance I get, so I quickly fed my card through my Typecast to quickly jot down a little message inside. The vintage type text look is one of my favourites.
I then simply added a few of the epoxy stickers found in the Stationery Kits and also a buzzword for even more impact. Super adorable right?? And SO easy….anyone can do this!
Aside from creating my cards, I think customizing the envelopes is my very favourite part. It is like a smorgasbord of stationery bliss! Choosing an envelope and then choosing a liner is such a fun way to create a different look and vibe everytime!
This hot pink envelope was just begging for a gold foil liner.
I simply placed it inside and it truly adds SO much to a basic envelope.
Slip your card in and voila!
I also love adding labels and glitter alpha stickers to the front of my envelopes. Again, these are found in the Stationery Kits and are such easy ways to add that little extra special something to your cards.
I also love incorporating notes from the notepads that are found in the Stationary Kits into my cards as well.
The notepads are super cute and instead of having a blank inside, they add a fun element to your card.
And as always, confetti is just always amazing!
Sprinkle some inside your card and it will be sure to evoke an instant smile. Who doesn’t love a confetti surprise?!?
Saying Thank You has truly never been more fun, more pretty or more creative! These gorgeous cards (and more) can now be found in Michaels Stores. And in the spirit of gratitude….thank YOU for stopping by! XO Happy creating friends.
