A Musical Thank You
Thursday, 20 June 2013
Wow! I can't believe it's been just about a week already since my last post! Time certainly does seem to be flying. Our kiddos have one more week of school, and I always find the end of school such a busy and exciting time! The other thing I always look forward to is the wrap up of all the extra curricular activities. Baseball for my son will end this coming Monday and tonight is our final piano recital for both our kids!
Today I want to share with you the Thank You card that our son and daughter will be presenting to their piano teacher. I rummaged through my stash looking for some music themed paper, and found that I was coming up a little short in this department! However, I found a die cut photo in my Heartwarming Vintage cut outs stash and loved it...even though the musical portion is minimal, at least it's represented! LOL
The background papers are from the Authentique lines Grace and Strong. The "Thanks" sentiment is from Stamp'n Up and the small corner floral die cuts come from a Heartwarming Vintage sheet as well. I've added some music themed washi tape to tie into the piano inspired card. And last, but not least I added a butterfly. I used the Memory Box Butterfly dies Darla and Vivienne...and added some extra sparkle with some patina colored Stickles to the butterfly body.
Here's a look at how it turned out...
And here's a little close up of some of the detailing...
Now, the kids piano teacher and I are also good friends. We go to scrapbooking/cardmaking crops together and share a passion for crafting. So, it never comes as a surprise to her when she is gifted with a gift certificate to the local craft store. I happened to pop into the store a few days ago because the owner, Lori was having an 8th year anniversary sale going on...who can resist a sale? Well, Lori always has ideas for me, and this particular visit she pointed me into the direction of the small glasine bags she had on sale...(you can see the Love is in the Details website for the sale here!) She mentioned that they happened to be the correct size for gift cards/certificates! Well...she didn't have to tell me twice...I stocked up! And here's what I did with one of these bags in this presentation Thank You card...
I added a little rose element that I cut out from my Heartwarming Vintage sheets and positioned it on a few pop up dots so that the flap of the bag would tuck under part of the stem and keep the bag closed. I think it worked out very well.
I hope that the kids piano teacher will enjoy the card...I know she will certainly enjoy shopping with what's going to be inside...and I will enjoy the break from all of the kids after school activities. I'm just so looking forward to a relaxing and recharging summer!
Well, that's all I have today! Thanks for stopping in and taking a look around! Hope to see you back again soon!
