A Guy's Gratitude...

to view the image up-close, please click on the photo
My husband came home one day, his arms filled with holiday gifts from colleagues and co-workers and asked me to make him some thank you cards that "weren't too girly." After I was done laughing, I sat down and made him several of the card I am sharing today. As I had so many to make, I was happy that I had just gotten my December Key Ingredients kit in the mail a couple days before! I found the patterned paper a perfect blend of pretty and neutral, and the colors were terrific for cards that would be more appropriate for a man to give. Now if only I could get him to actually write them...

SPILLING THE BEANS
  1. Make card from cardstock.
  2. Die cut top note from patterned paper. Adhere ribbon and tie with embroidery floss. Punch hole for snowflake brade and attach. Adhere.
  3. Stamp sentiment.
