Reusable Fir Tree Cards...

Hello blogger-friends!
I am so very excited that we'll be having our first BIG SNOW STORM this Saturday! 
It has been a little difficult dealing with the cold, with a pretty good chest cold, but it's all worth it when the snow starts falling....especially as it piles up on the fir trees!  God truly is a Masterful Artist!!
Today I wanted to share with you a very simple idea that you can do with your own cards that you send out...
make them RE-USE-ABLE!
Here are Thank You cards I put in all the packages I mailed out this week for those who ordered from the inspired stamps web-store

The card is simple embossed white cardstock
I used a Spellbinders' Scalloped Oval die to cut the New England Ivy (CTMH) cardstock
Then I stamped the largest tree in my FIR TREES stampset using matching green ink.

Here's a close up with some STICKLES glitter on the top.
I didn't put a sentiment on the outside of the card, but I wrote a thank you note inside on a Sticky Note.
That way the recipients are able to take the note off, and write their own note inside the card
to send off to a friend or loved one!
If you do this, I highly recommend sending a matching envelope ( I stamped a tree and glittered it on the envelope for these gals, but forgot to get a photo!)
I will be back tomorrow!
Blessings,
inspired stamping,
~Antoinette
