Graduate Thank You

I made a set of thank you cards for Kim.  As soon as I had an idea of what I wanted to do, I could have just kicked myself for not getting the new Happy Trails stamp set from the Papertrey Ink June release.  It was on my "maybe" list and I decided to pass.  I do this all the time, I regret not getting a stamp set and then end up buying it the next month or even placing a second order.  Well, I had to do without Happy Trails, so I searched through the stamp sets that I had and found a workable trail in Baby Button Bits.  Yes!

I stuck with a simple white base and made the cards one layer for easy mailing.  Here are some of the cards I made:

I just couldn't pass up adding a touch of bling.  

Cardstock: PTI Stampers Select White
Stamps: PTI For the Graduate, Think Big Favorites #5 and Baby Button Bits
Ink: Jenni Bowlin Spice Tin, Memento Tuxedo Black and Rhubarb Stalk
Other: Rhinestones from Recollecions (Michaels)
Size: 5.5" x 4.25"


  1. What a great, simple design! And using the "trail" from Baby Button Bits for the hat - brilliant!

  2. These really are perfect for a TY card for a graduate. I'll have to keep these in mind two years from now ;)

  3. So cute!! Love the tail with the cap!!

  4. These are awesome!! I don't think you need the new trail stamp (well, maybe you do ;) because your trail worked perfectly! What a fabulous idea.
