Citrus Thank You Card

By | Cards, Techniques, Thank You Cards | No Comments

It’s kind of funny that my favorite stamp set right now is called Apple of My Eye and I haven’t used the apple stamp yet! My favorite stamps in the set are the citrus slice and the thank you. Here’s another quick and easy citrus thank you card I made with them after stamping a full sheet of 8-1/2″x11″ paper and cutting it up using the May One Sheet Wonder Club template.

This card reminded me that there are so many fun things you can emboss with embossing folders!! Like duct tape! Just make sure that you attach it to a piece of card stock first or things could get…
