Valentine Thank You


I was a very lucky teacher this year to get lots of plants and beautiful bouquets of flowers from my students for Valentine's Day.  To show my appreciation, I whipped up some simple cards to send to them.  My card base is my favorite for making student thank you notes:  Recollections 3.5" x 4.8" cards and envelopes.  I love the smaller size and the embossing on them!


I used the My Creative Time Stitched Scallop Heart Die Set to make my patterned hearts and topped them with a cork heart made with the MCT Stitched Button Dies, tied with a little Thin Hemp from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.  The sentiment is from MCT's Chunky Jar Accessories.


I had fun using different scraps to change up the look of the various cards!

Your thank you notes are adorable. The little cork heart is a nice touch, it adds texture without taking over the card.
