I like to offer small, thoughtful acknowledgements to the staff of my mum’s aged care facility. They work for a low wage and put up with a lot from residents and families. My mum is loved and very well cared for where she is and the staff deserve to know they are appreciated. Valentine’s Day is a good excuse to give them a card each.
The inspiration for these cards came from Pinterest. Christine Franc at stampedblessings.com was the creator.
The cute little character on my cards is Sticky Boy. He is Close To My Heart’s mascot and makes an appearance at consultant functions. I bought this stamp set in a fundraiser for Operation Smile at our last convention. Watch Sticky Boy’s video by clicking here or follow him on Facebook!
“So Grateful” on the front of the card and “Happy Valentine’s Day” inside the card came from our Hostess Rewards Stamp Set, “Say It All”. You can get your hands on this fab set in 3 different ways.
- Host a gathering of friends
- Place a single order of $200 or more directly with me
- Join my team and gain access to all the exclusive products as a consultant
Because I was making more than 30 cards, they needed to be quick and easy.
Here’s how you do it.
Base Card: Daisy White Cardstock cut to 4″ x 8 1/2″. Score at 4″ and 4 1/2″
Front Panel: Daisy White Cardstock cut to 3″ x 3″. Round one corner
Chocolate Wrapper: La Vie En Rose Paper cut to 1 1/4″ x 3 3/4″
Heart: Red Glitter Paper cut using Artiste Cricut Cartridge p49 Accent 1 (shift) 3/4″
Stamp all pieces while they are flat. Add front panel using Foam Tape. Wrap 2 of the flat Lindt Chocolates together and use Duck Adhesive to hold them inside the card.
Of course you can adapt these little cards to any theme but wouldn’t it be nice to make someone feel special on Valentine’s by giving them a sweet thank you?
