Scalloped Circle Thank You Card!

Hello everybody!,

What do you know, my son's second grade teacher gave me a Valentine - as a thank you for being one of her Room Representatives this year.  She is always giving us who help out in her class little "thank yous".  What a nice lady, huh?

I decided to make her a scalloped circle thank you card with a little bow on it.  I used the Birthday Bash scalloped circle and then a Doodle Charms kitty with a Peachy Keen face.  

Then I saw a video on Youtube from about how to use Inkscape to draw circular text.  I downloaded the program and followed the video (I had to try it about 20 times!)  Yikes...  But it finally worked and I used Nestabilities to cut it out.  I would have made the circle bigger but that's the biggest circle I had!  You are supposed to download your cut file to SCAL (sure cuts a lot) but I don't have that one so I just played with it until it fit my circle cutter.

What I needed to do was to weld the bottom scalloped pink circle to another one and had them bind together at the top so I could open the card to write my note - ahh, next time!

I printed right from the Inkscape program to my printer onto the pink paper.

I added the whiskers and freckles - aren't the little eyelashes cute!

This is stacked WAY up with foam stickers.
Thanks for looking!

  1. Lovin this! A while back I was looking for a thank you card for a friend's son. I had zero luck finding what I was looking for. I told a group of friends about this problem one night while we were having a few drinks. We proceeded to get smashed and make up a bunch of greeting cards we found funny. I had been writing down the cards we made up and the next morning I read them. Much to my surprise the cards were still funny even when sober.
