Second use thank you card

Sometimes I make what a friend calls “second use cards.” This little thank you piece was attached to a gift bag I received. I attached it to a base of our new In-Color Primrose Petals card stock and embossed the middle section with the heart folder from Adorning Accents Folders. It made a cute, quick card. I think the focal piece was made with MDS—My Digital Studio. It’s a great way to have the fun of stamping combined with the ease and convenience of digital crafting.

This was a fun card to make. I used Sail Away (retired) stamped with Night of Navy ink on Very Vanilla card stock. The beautiful edges were made with the Adorning Accents Edgelits and the Big Shot. I also used Sincere Salutations and The Open Sea (both retired), along with some hemp twine as an accent.

Here’s another version of the Petite Purse. I used Wisteria Wonder (one of my favorite colors) with a little bit of striped (retired) DSP. I punched out three hearts and used Tiny Tags with the coordinating punch to embellish the purse. It’s also embossed with Perfect Polka Dots. I gave it to my hair dresser, who just got married a few months ago. Last time I called for a hair cut, she was off getting married and honeymooning in Hawaii. I’m glad she’s back!

The new SU Petite Purse die makes the cutest purse! It’s tiny but can hold nice little treasures. This one would make a great baby shower favor, filled with candy or money. I embossed the Pretty in Pink card stock with our Perfect Polka Dots folder, added a little ribbon and a baby rattle from a very old set called Sketch an Event. The handle piece is also made with the die but you could use ribbon.

The new holiday mini is available now through January 2. You can see it on the Stampin’ Up! website. Let me know if you’d like to order any of the cute new holiday sets or great accessories.
