Letterpress Thanks

Hello everyone.  I hope you are having a fabulous week.  I sure am!  I graduated from nursing school on Tuesday night, as one of four valedictorians of my class.  I am very proud of my accomplishment.  But my crazy life continues.  Now I start studying for the NCLEX (licensing exam for nurses) and start the hunt for a job!

After graduation, I realized I needed some thank you notes.  I really wasn't expecting gifts, but I got several.  Yesterday, when I filmed this, I had just a few minutes before I had to pick up my daughter from the bus stop, so I knew if I was going to get them all done, it was going to have to be a quick and easy card to mass produce.  I used my Letterpress tool by Lifestyle Crafts, because it is so easy to mass produce with the Letterpress tool.  I made thirteen cards in under an hour.  Not bad, huh?

I also decided that this card was going to be a slightly different size than I normally make.  This card ended up measuring 3.5 x 5.5 inches.  It's kind of a fun size.  I was inspired by a card I received for graduation that was this size.

As you'll see in the video, there are so many ways to add finishing touches to this card.  I topped mine off with rhinestones (no surprise there).


Hope you have a fabulous day!
