A Quick Thank You Card

Nope still not pregnant yet. haha. I just decided to make these quick and easy baby shower thank you cards to put in my booth for sale. I got these cute simple (and cheap) note cards from Big Lots (12 for $1.50) and I decided to spruce them up. I used Lindsay's baby rattle digi from the Babies & Bows Collection. However I didn't feel like coloring 12 of these tiny rattles (not to mention I'm not so great at staying in the lines when they are that small). So I imported my digi into a free program called Paint.net and colored it digitally. I was able to pick colors that matched the note cards perfectly. Then all I had to do was print and cut them into tiny circles. I also printed the words Thank You on a larger circle layered them w/pop dots.

That's right folks! Buy 2 stamp sets, get one free! If you're shoping in her Shophandmade Store, just purchase the 2 sets you want and when Lindsay emails your order to you, she'll ask you which set you'd like for free! So easy! Not to mention, for every $5 you spend, you get a free stamp! Merry Christmas to you!
And don't forget to stop by Lindsay's blog for your weekly freebie!
Now it's time for your Thursday freebie! Here is a useful little svg for your thank you cards. I've cut it as small as 1.5" and it cuts wonderfully!

  3. I love how you colored your images with the computer - what a time saver! My DS does this with drawings he makes. Maybe he will show me how...

  5. It was almost strange to see a non-Christmas, non-Winter type card. I think I've forgotten about every other kind of card. Thanks for the adorable reminder Tamara. Beautiful job.

  6. Fabulous idea Tamara! Love the way you "spruced up" the cards - and like Melissa said - an adorable reminder that there is life outside of this Season! :)
