I love making my own cards for others. I think adding a touch of something you make is sometimes like a gift in itself. Sometimes I browse through my stash for scraps to glue onto blank cards, and save them for a later date. I bought a charm pack of Tulane and I knew the design of these urban, gritty, and bold fabrics would make a nice design for a thank you card for my dad.
I chose the focal fabric Maison De’filer in Rasberry (#4768), trimmed the edges with pinking scissors and—voilà! I just happened to have bright blue envelope to match! Right now Connecting Threads has a ton of Father’s Day gift ideas that would look good made up with Tulane as well; check them out here.
Why not make your own thank you card this year to go along with your handmade gift?
