Quick Holiday Thank You Cards
I know I mentioned this idea in my last newsletter, so I thought I'd show you how the Holiday Thank You cards turned out. When I first saw Luxe's new Color Me Festive Paper, I just knew my daughter, Delaney, would love it. I thought it would be perfect for her to use to make Thank You cards. Our cards were pretty simple, but you could use this same idea with a few more sophisticated supplies to create your own beautiful holiday cards.
Delaney loves to color, so this paper is perfect for her! She chose to use her colored pencils to color a few of the cute sketched designs. Then I cut them out for her and she used the Tombo adhesive to put them on the front of her cards.
For the cards, I pulled some, Hot Off the Press cards out of my stash and let Delaney choose which design to use for each recipient. I added a little ribbon to each card and Delaney used the inside to write her Christmas Thank You's. Delaney loved being able to make her own cards, so this project was perfect. It would be a great one to do with your kids too!
