Thanks a Latte
"Thanks a latte." That's what I wanted to put on this card but I didn't have the phrase as a stamp. (Hint, hint, stamp companies!) If you know of a company that makes this sentiment stamp, please let me know! I opted for a simple "thanks" in a gorgeous font by Stampin Up (the set is called Fabulous Phrases and has numerous other words in this font.)
The boy that gives ds#2 a ride to school every morning is a Starbucks fan so that's what drove the theme of his holiday card. I stuck a gift card inside as a thank you.
Frugal tip #51: Use a small line image stamp and some leftover scraps on your desk to paper piece a quick card.
I love using patterned paper with words on them but in this case, I used a $1 paperback dictionary to add a circle punch with the word "gift" behind my image. Another interesting note: The bakers twine I used is from The Twinery (see link on sidebar) and the color is called "Cappuccino." *smile*
Thanks for visiting and have a cozy weekend!
