Hello there! It’s Meghann Andrew with you today on the AC blog. There are so many amazing current collections on hand here at American Crafts to create with, and after the holiday season, there are so many people in our lives to thank—for hosting holiday get-togethers or buying that perfect gift. I paired some of my favorite current American Crafts collections to create “thank you” greeting cards to send to the special people in my life, and they were simple and easy to create!
My first card was made in just a few minutes and pairs the Dear Lizzy Star Gazer collection polka dot paper with the beautiful “you are magical” foiled die cut, along with the All the Good Things feather and leaf die cuts to create a central focal point. To ground that, I added the beautiful star washi tape and a piece of ribbon, then embellished with three simple sequins.
Going just a small step further, this card was created by fussy-cutting the Shimelle Glitter Girl “rad” and “amazing” speech bubbles from patterned paper, then adhering to a piece of white cardstock. My “thanks” greeting was created with Thickers from the same collection, then to add differing textures, I added the “you are super” shaker sticker and enamel stars. I love the simple, graphic look of this card!
Adding just a few more minutes to your creative time using stamps from the newest All the Good Things collection can create this pretty floral card. By stamping the flowers onto the All the Good Things Mixed Media paper with permanent ink and coloring them in with art crayons, I created my own custom embellishments to decorate the bottom right corner of my card. I added a few enamel dots from the same collection and a custom “you’re the best” banner for my card greeting, while keeping the remainder of the card uncluttered and simple with the lattice background.
Be sure to check out all of these beautiful products from the Glitter Girl, Star Gazer and All the Good Things collections that create perfect thank you cards for those that you’re most grateful to! A handmade greeting is perfect for showing someone how much you care, and these products make it easy to do just that. Happy creating!
