You guys!! It's MMH launch day, woohoo!! This month's kit is one of my very favorite kits so far!! It's a gift card envelope die, and really awesome messages for saying thank you, or just letting someone know they are appreciated. I am going to use this one ALL THE TIME!
For today's post, I created two different cards. First - one of the messages I am *most* excited about in this kit is the "you are a great coach" sentiment. I personally begged for this one! My kids play sports and I'm forever making cards for coaches. So... YAY!! Here's one I'm making for end of spring soccer season.
I combined the stamps from the kit with some fab add-on stamps, CL981 Happy Mail. The "thank you" comes from that. I also pulled out my cute soccer ball from Kelly's Sports Planner. The nice bright inks are hybrids Indigo, Strawberry and Intense Black.
I also just had to use that cutie smile from the kit stamps for a card! I basically cased my own card for this one - it's inspired by this one that I made for the Hero Arts Summer Catalog.
I colored the smiles with Copics. The "you" is cut from black cardstock, using the add-on dies for the kit. I cut it out five times and glued them all together so it has fun dimension. The "make me smile" message from the kit is perfect with this cute smiley face!
Here's a closer look at the add-ons to the kit. First, Happy Mail:
And the Thank You Pair Fancy Dies, which can stand alone, or cut out the words in the kit's stamp set.
This entire kit was inspired by the one and only, amazing, fabulous, mega-talented Jennifer McGuire, and her challenge last fall to encourage kindness. She's so awesome.
