Hi Honey Bee fans, Kimberly here today to show you some cute thank you cards  (plus a little gift) I made using the Thanks stamp set.   The cards are super simple – I just trimmed a piece of patterned paper and adhered it the bottom of a piece of black cardstock.  I stamped and heat embossed the thanks sentiment with white EP.   To create the butterfly paperclips, I stamped the butterfly with Versamark and coated it with sticky embossing powder.   I rubbed on a piece of rainbow foil and voila!   The magic of foiling!   Isn’t it gorgeous!

I fussy cut the butterflies and sandwiched the paperclip between two butterflies.  I used Glossy Accents, and they seem to be holding together just fine!   I wanted to color the paperclips, so I used my Copic markers to do so.   I notice the color is coming off a little bit – maybe I should have sealed them.  Something to try next time!   To add the clips to my card front, I sliced a little opening in the black cardstock and inserted the clip.   The whole panel was mounted to a white card base with foam adhesive.

I hope you like this little project today!   I love that the recipient can use the clip long after they’re done admiring the card!   These would look awesome in planners too!

Have a great weekend everyone….I’ll see you again soon!
