A Gift for a Gift

Tis the season for bridal and baby showers.  Oh how I remember those days, and all of those thank you notes to write afterwards.  As the season for gift buying gears up, I thought I would share a secret that I have to help out the happy future couple or mother to be.  Whenever I buy a wedding or baby gift for some one, I also include a gift of thank you cards and envelopes packaged with my gift.  I usually place them in a cello bag and tie them off with a bow.  The recipient isalways tickled to see them in the gift; sometimes even more excited about the cards than the gift, go figure.  The pictures below are of part of the set of wedding thank yous that I am working on.  I usually put 10 cards in each gift.

To add one extra touch, I run the flap only of the envelope through the big shot. 

Paper:  Whisper White
Stamps: Afterthoughts, Bliss
Ink:  Basic Black
Accessories:  Big Shot, Tulip Frames Embossing Folder, Texture Plate, Envelopes

I do the same thing. When you have to spend your money on so many things, thank you's are always welcome. Cute cards.

What a great idea Stacy. Never thought of including gift cards and envies in with the gifts but that's a keeper. Really like the cards and the flap on the envelopes is a great touch. TFS.

What a thoughtful idea. I have always wanted to do this but end up waiting too long to start the cards. Yours are very pretty.
