Male teen thank you cards


Just popping in with a real quickie post today. I wanted to show you the thank you cards I made for my teenaged son to use to thank his relatives after his birthday.


They're simple postcard style cards - A4 sheets of Naturals Ivory cut into four pieces.The border image is from Plane and Simple and is so versatile you could use it for almost anything! Come and have a closer look:


This border stamp has a diamond pattern on it but I've cut mine in half and mounted each design separately to make it easier to use - I like my stamps to work really hard as I craft in a square metre so there's not much space to store them in! The image was stamped in two greens and the beautiful sentiment was stamped over the top using my stamp-a-majig for accuracy. Not a very fancy design, but it works!

Supplies needed for this card:
Stamps: Plane and Simple, Afterthoughts
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Wild Wasabi, Not Quite Navy
Card stock: Naturals Ivory
Other: Stamp-a-majig
You can buy any of these supplies from me and I can have them delivered to your address in the UK. Just send me an email or give me a call on 01280 820593 and I'll be happy to help.

My son liked the cards - for which I should be grateful as he's very fussy about his things. He is the only one of the family to be obsessed with branded items (I'm hoping this is just a phase...) In fact, he's an advertiser's dream! One of his favourite birthday gifts was a shockingly expensive sweatshirt from Superdry which he promptly ruined with salad dressing spilled down the front and some nasty oil stuff he sat in on the beach. When I saw the stains I was really upset, but he told me not to worry. "It'll come out with Vanish oxi action!" he told me cheerfully. "Of course it won't!" I said. "Nothing gets rid of oil stains!" He looked at me with those clear blue eyes. "But Vanish oxi action works on even the toughest of stains!" he said. Oh, if only life were as simple as the ads!

Now I must dash as I've had an exciting offer but I'll need to rush about like a mad thing if I want to take advantage of it! Thanks for your company today - will explain tomorrow,

  7. Great masculine cards Vicky. How is it that kids hear and absorb TV adverts, yet never hear what adults say (sometimes after 3 or 4 times).

    No bran mash tonight, just apples and sugar lumps!!!!

    Will pop back tomorrow to see what you have for us!!
