Chinese Kids Thank You Card Gift Set

Ever consider giving your cards to someone as the actual gift? Many times we focus on making a card to accompany a gift, but why not make cards to give as the gift? People reallly appreciate handmade cards, so a box of cards would be a delight to anyone.

Here, Jenny used two sets of Hero Arts stamps featuring these cute Chinese kids! This is a great way to utilize ALL of the stamps in your sets! Because they are in a "set" they often coordinate well together and takes the guess work out of putting together a set of cards.

This set in particular are all thank you notes, but you could make them any type of card you want. The other great thing about making a set of cards is that you can keep the designs simple. The receiver will be "wow'd" anyway since they are getting so many cards!

Jenny used several of the Hero Arts clear sentiment stamp sets for all the "Thank Yous" found throughout the cards. These sets are great for adding the right sentiment to your cards. Plus they are clear, so you can position them precisely where you want it to go!

Can't forget the boy!

Finally, Jenny packaged all the cards in a box. She added the band so that the cover would not come off and to give it a decorative accent. You can't tell from the photo, but she also stamped on the box lid using the Versamark ink pad to create a watermark. Stop by the store to see this sample up close.
