Card Share: Dance Teacher Thank You


Simple Stories DIY Basic Card Foundations provided the perfect base for a set of dance teacher thank you cards. I started with 4 x 6" foundations (using a different color for each card) and printed the word "dance" in repeated text on the card itself.

A layer of vellum softens the text while still allowing the words to show through.

leotard cut file from the Silhouette store is simply embellished with a sequin, then adhered atop a diecut kraft heart with a few other embellishments. Each card features a different dance-themed flair from Bossy Joscie (the other cards have words like "graceful", "tap" and "ballet") and is monogrammed with a Doodlebug alpha sticker.

We'll put some gift cards inside before Alexa hands these out to her dance teachers.
