Thank You cards

My sweet sister is due to POP any day now with twin girls!! Hee hee! I just wanted to say POP really loud at her. But seriously, she has about 4 weeks left until we get to meet little Pancake and Flapjack. She won't tell me what names they decided on, so everybody has been calling them Pancake and Flapjack. Who knows, maybe those ARE the names and they've been tricking us the whole time. Anyway...she asked me a while ago to make her some thank you cards so she can send them out for baby things. I wanted to make some cards that were clean and simple and without a bunch of bulk. I wanted her to be able to send them in the mail with no problems. Here is what I came up with...I made her a set of 4 cards with each of these designs....

I already shared this one for THIS post:


I had to add some bling and I don't think the rhinestones will add too much bulk in an envelope. Here's another one...first time to ink up my Giga background set from Papertrey Ink:


I was going for a more girly color combination with this one:

And one more!! I really like the raspberry fizz with the smokey shadow...and of course, polka dots!!


I think I was on a polka dot kick, I used them on every single card! If I had to pick a favorite stamp set from Papertrey Ink, it would definitely be Polka Dot basics. I use it all the time. I hope my sister sends out all the cards and gets some good use out of them. I loved making them, it was fun figuring out a design and them making 4 of them. I cranked out 16 cards in one afternoon.

Hope you're all having a great week...Thanks for stopping by!!
