May Week 2 "Thank You"

Here is some of the Thank You cards I made to send to some family members. Simple cards!
***Sorry the lighting is bad..very gloomy, cold, and rainy here today.***

I Used:
DCWV pattern paper- Flower Shower Stack
Wausau cardstock
ACY cart- Tag 2 1/4" page 36 in book(pattern paper tag)
Ashlyn's Alphabet-Icon 2" page 64
Darcie Embossing Folder- Fleur Di Lis
CTMH Ink- Green Meadow
CTMH Stamp- For Every Occasion
A2 size card

***Not sure if anyone has seen the blog post about the Darcie brand Embossing Folders?!?! I found out about them from Karen at Karen's Cricut Creations she found hers at Pat Catan's...I found mine at Crafts 2000..My sister and mom picked them up for me since I don't live near one, they do. It was a deal 2 for $5..I got 10 of them..yea that is a lot, but when a deal is like that you can't pass it up..since cuttlebug folders are around $4..Now my review of the Darcie Embossing Folders..I love them..they are A2 size, they emboss very get a deep emboss just like cuttlebug folders..If you live near a Pat Catan's or Crafts 2000 I recommend going an buying them. Next time I am back home I plan to go to Crafts 2000 an look at the others that they have an maybe even get more. If anyone gets them please let me know what you think. I think they work just as great as cuttlebug I did notice one thing the Darcie folders are smidge longer an skinner than the cuttlebug folders, but they do just as good.(notice the not embossed edge's top/bottom on my card)***My A2 size cards are a 8 1/2" x 11" paper cut in half..than folded. so 5 1/2" X 4 1/4" cards**

Thanks for Looking & all the Great comments! Have a great week everyone!

Hugs, Sheena

  6. I have several of the Darcie embossing folders and I love them too. I called my mom in West Virginia, they have a crafts 2000 and I asked her to go get me some that I don't have. I only have 6 darcie folders and I gave her the names of them so I don't get any repeats. Aren't mom's just the greatest thing in the whole world. Your cards are completely adorable.
    Thanks for the info.
