My aunt sent me the most thoughtful gift for Christmas. She made all the female cousins a very special charm necklace using charms from my Grandma’s bracelet. My grandma passed away this year and it has been hard on the whole family. The necklace was such a surprise and such a wonderful gesture. I wanted to make her a nice thank you card so I used this week’s Mojo Monday Challenge. I love the new in colors from Stampin Up. I think the Pool Party and Calypso Coral make a pretty combo with a retro feel.
Inside of the card
I got this great idea from Mary Fish’s blog about “re-gifting” cards. I know that I put a lot of thought and love into the cards that I make so to think they just get thrown away makes me sad. So I thought this idea of adding an insert in the card with your message so the card can be re-gifted was brilliant. So I added a coordinating insert for my message and also put a little blurb about how the card can be reused since I wrote nothing directly in the inside. I guess this could be considered a little take on the pay it forward mentality…send the card along to someone else. 🙂
