KISS Card: Thank you notes for Alana’s birthday

Share This!

Alana's KISS Card

Most of the hustle and bustle of the holidays is over…it’s clean up time and thank you note time.  I would say it’s a perfect time for my next

KISS Card! – Keep it Simple Stamper Video!

In this series, I show you how to make quick cards and how to mass produce them.  Today’s card is for my 11 year old who says I need to go on “What not to wear”  (WHAT!!???) – she claims to be super trendy – so the pressure was on to make a card that would make the cut!

I couldn’t believe my first try was “Alana Approved”!  She will use these for birthday thank you notes.  Even though they don’t say “Thank you”, they are perfect for that.

Once this first set of cards was made, I didn’t stop there.  So many things you can do with these fun supplies!  So I kept stamping, tweaking up the design as I went.

I ended up with FOUR more versions of this card and complete videos for all four cards are already up on StampNation.

    I just love the creativity and simplicity of this card. I am learning more and more about letting the card design itself and not taking the creating process sooo seriously. I have been appling this in my own creating process and finding it MORE fun to discover how the card turns out. Sometimes it is a surprise to even me when I lean back and see what I created. Thanks for the guidance I receive from you and your fellow creators.
