Welcome to my blog, which one day, hopefully, should be filled with wonderful handmade card ideas! My goal is to create a blog with ideas for some easy, 'make-able' cards for you to take inspiration from! (It's what I've always needed to help me!)

Thank You Card

This may not sound many, but I reached 1000 pageviews this week, which means I completed last years resolution! So it seems that this card is very appropriate:
It's that time of the year to send out Thank You cards, this one is for my Godmother. I started with a blank purple card. Although you may not be able to see it very well, there is a white butterfly with gold swirls stuck straight onto the card. I also found the purple dotted paper in my snippets box, and cut a smaller butterfly from that, which was stuck on with foam pads. I cut the shape at the bottom from another blank purple card, and then stuck the smaller piece of white card on top, which I stamped the 'Thank You' on with gold ink. All that was then stuck with foam pads. A nice simple one today!!
I should also say thank you for the suggestions of how to stick buttons on, I will try them all out and decide which is the best! :)


  1. A beautiful card Carys! Love the soft colours and those butterflies are gorgeous - great use of snippets too.

    Hugs, Di xx

  3. I love that purple polka dotted butterfly! Such a lovely thank you card, Carys!

  4. Congrats on getting to 1,000 views! Very cool.

    Your card is absolutely adorable. Yes, I can see the white butterfly with the gold design on it. I hadn't thought of stamping a sentiment using gold ink - very clever and it looks amazing!

    Happy Sunday,
