Thank you cards for Aleeza's birthday


Hello bloggers,

Thanks for your lovely comments on my last post...

Here are two simple thank you cards I made for Aleeza's play mates in nursery with paper lying around on my table.

I did not have the motivation to look for more paper lest I increase the mess on my slightly clean table... I got some inspiration from my dear friend, Sandra to clean my table so I went for it...

Now I know how Sandra makes breathtakingly beautiful cards with such detail and patience - because her uncluttered table helps her think clearly alongwith her brilliant creative instincts of course.

If you want to prove me right, just make a short trip to her wonderful blog and seeing is believing, right?


The first of the two cards is for a girl and the second is for a boy... they should have had a childlike appeal but it seems that I am trying to impress the mothers more than their kids.

I am going to enter them for the following challenges:

Hiya Monica. Two fab cards, love the embossing, it is so very effective. The addition of the ribbon is just perfect and I love the weaving on the pink card. Great job. Happy crafting my friend.

Hi Monica - love both your thank you cards, particularly the way you weaved the ribbon through the punched border on the first card.
I must get around to the thank you cards for Andrew and Eleri.
Love, Andrea xx

Hi Monica . Both cards are awesome . Love the embossing , it's a great feature on the cards and the use of threaded ribbon is great idea.

Beautiful cards. Wonderful to see the embossing and the ribbons together. Really like how you have woven the ribbon on the first card.

These are both so pretty but I REALLY love the one with the plum. The Swiss dots folder is one of my staple supplies and I love the ribbon treatment that you used along the bottom. Thanks for joining us at PTT. Hope to see you again soon.
