Leftover Giftwrap Cards and an Altered Jar

Hello! I'm sad I haven't participated in a card challenge in a couple months! Now that the holidays are over, hopefully I can soon and get more practice! Anyways, I just wanted to share some simple thank you cards I made to show my appreciation for my Christmas gifts/money. My granmda had a big gift and I asked if I could keep the paper and she said ok. I decided to use it as my dp! My brain was getting fried trying to think of a different layout for each card even though it looks easy! I used the same stamp for the "thank you" and embossed it in gold. Here they are...

My grandma also had one of those island princess popcorn jars that she was going to give away. She said I could decorate it...this is what I came up with...


  1. That is a nice wrapping paper . . . luv the damask print! Great way to recycle!!! Hope you had enough paper to make all your thank you cards! :)
