Thank You Cards – after the celebration

What should a good guest do after a celebration?  Why send a thank you card.  Even better is to send a hand made thank you card.  I like to make my cards in big batches.  That way I always have some on hand.

The last time I sat down and made thank you cards I made them with Spanish sentiments.  Don’t speak another language?  Well that is okay too.

Gracias - Thank you Card

Gracias - Thank you Card

There are on line translating services such as google translate orbablefish you can use.    When creating these cards I wanted to use really fin fonts too.  So I went to Duetica.com and played around until I got just the look I wanted.  Their fonts are interchangeable – there are so many styles in every font.  ( I copied this next part from their site) Unlike tradtional fonts,Duetica fonts give you lots of lettering styles to choose from for each and every letter, which you select quickly and easily as you type.  To create the spanish greeting card set I used some of my favorite papers.  These papers and rub-ons are 4 years old and from Frances Meyer.  I still have a few sheets of each left and  only use them on special projects.  I also used Marvy Uchida Punches.  I hope you enjoyed this variation on the typical sentiments.

After you have enjoyed the celebration do not forget to be a good guest.
