What a Sweet Gesture...

Thank You Flower Card...

Happy Happy Friday Everyone! Good Morning Crafty Friends. This morning My Kids and I are enjoying Our First Day of Summer. Yesterday, was their last day of school. Lots of Smiles... Awards and Report Cards!!! Ok, now for today's Project Post. I made a Thank You Card to a Sweet Family of a Basic Trainig Soldier that sent my Husband (Drill Sgt. in Basic Training/Army) and Family a package full of Huckleberry Yumminess{pic at the end of this post}. So, the Sweet Gesture definately deserves a Thank You Card Made By Me...of course. I hope you all like:

Flower Layers were Cut on My Cricut Plum/Pink Expression.
Layer Cuts are: 4", 3 1/2", 3", 2 1/2", 2", 1 1/2", 1"
Petals were shaded with Fluid Chalk.
Added a half pearl from a dollar bin package.

Faux Stitches were added with a white gel pen. Also, I added some aqua mini adhesive beads from Imaginisce with the Pink Heating Tool. Punched White Cardstock with a Martha Stewart Border Punch.

Leaf Layers were Cut at 2", 1 1/2", and 1"

Added half pearls on each side of the Sentiment.
Edges were shaded with Fluid Chalk.
Black Ink Pad was used for the Sentiment.
And of Course used one of my favorite stamps sets from Joy's Life.

Inside of Card was decorated with leftover scraps to Coordinate.

Envelope was decorated with leftover scrap and punched to Coordinate Card.
Stamped Sentiment from the same stamp as Card.

Here is what A Sweet Family of a Basic Training Soldier Sent My Husband for all of us to enjoy.

 Montana sure has some Delicious yumminess made from Huckleberry!!!
I really do miss their HUCKLEBERRY PIE and Huckleberry IceCream!!!

I will be back tomorrow for another fun project made with the FUN Barnyard Puns Stamps!!!

Sweet Creations...


  1. I love this! Not sure if the words simple & detailed make sense in the same description but I really love that the cuts are simple, but adding all of the embellishments and layers to the inside & envelope really give this project the detail for the recipient to know how special it is. Great job!

  2. Such a CUTE card!! I love the way you layered the flowers by cutting them out in different sizes. What a great idea! I may have to try that sometime. Awesome work my friend!


  3. Very cute card! I love the layering and the colors! Super adorable. TFS!
