So I had a couple of situations that needed cards lately.

First, I needed a thank you card for a very nice family who opened their home to us while we were on a trip.



I took a pre made blank card and just glued the decorations on the front part. The inside was blank so that everybody could write their personal message to this family (we were seven!).

Next, is a birthday card for my Mother-in-law (whos birthday is today! Cheesy ) I made it with the help of my boyfriend.  She has a nickname that vaguely resembles the word owl in French and I had a bit of leftover scrapbooking paper with a owl on it, so we used this. I glued a ribbon to hide where the paper ends (that was the total width of my leftover!).



The inside is less coordinated. We used some pastel letter stickers I had (we didnt have time to go shopping for supplies, so we just used what I had!) and a plain green paper for the pocket. I also embossed a trim on the bottom and the top and made a little Shrinky Dinks goldfish (shes a Pisces).



We are going to be a bunch at this birthday party (14 total, including kids) so instead of making a huge card for everybody to write in (this family likes to write big messages), I glued a pocket inside the card and everybody will write their messages on scrapbooking tags!

You can tell I like green right?  Tongue

Best of 2013 winner, but this is just as good.

Ooooo.  I like the idea of the envy for a pocket inside the card.  This would be perfect for a money pocket for young relatives.
