*{A Thank You for a Thank You}* by Shannon


Hello!  Shannon here with a Thank You card gift set.    Just to let you know…  I am a procrastinator on top of procrastinating. I can make a list for a list.  I'm pretty excited to say, that I have finished Mack's teacher gift, I can only hope that she loves it. 

It's a creative spin on a thank you gift. It's a set of thank you's as a thank you! I wanted to create something that Mrs. W could use, and thank you's are something everyone needs. 

SRM Stickers has many products that make this possible!

This set has 5 cards and six envelopes (just in case)...and as you can see, it comes in a gift window box.

One tip I can offer when you are creating a set of cards, is have a plan in mind when you start. Colors, stick to a collection of paper and have a general design in your head. I am a layer-er so my plan for this set, was simple layers. 

Here's a few examples of the cards and how they began, adding patterns, stitches and doilies as I completed each card in the set.

See the doilies peeking out? I think that's a sweet touch to any project!

TIP:  You can separate your stickers and layer them on top of papers, other stickers, almost anything..that's the beauty of clear stickers! 
Hooray for versatility!

Twine is always a perfect touch for projects, simple in design, but lends a perfect punch of color or layer when added!

Sticker Stitches are my go to favorites. I think you can look back through 99% of what I create and there will be a sticker stitch somewhere on the card, layout or project.

TIP:  Making a sticker front and center is also another way you can make big impact with a single embellishment!

The window box these cards are being delivered in is also so very versatile. It can carry six envelopes and five cards like a boss! Add a few stickers to the acetate and some twine, and you have a perfect gift to give.

Thank you for letting me share my idea with you today, hopefully I have inspired you to create!
