As the school year winds down, I always find myself making a stack of thank you cards for my husband (who is a HS choir director) to give to all those great people who make his job easier. Today, I have one to share with you that uses some Unity goodies!
This is a large-ish card for his fabulous accompanist -- it had to be big so that all his kids (about 100) could sign it, and it had to work on a couple levels -- musically, sure, but she's also expecting her second child, a little boy, and a lot of the kids want to congratulate and thank her at the same time. Thus: a baby-appropriate-musical-butterfly card. Yup.
I stamped the flower frame from Unity's May Kit of the Month, die-cut it with a nestie circle, and watercolored the frame and flower. The butterfly (from the February KOM) is paper pieced and overstamped with a music background from Papertrey Ink (the sentiment is from them as well). His little wings are popped up a bit for dimension that will survive handling by all those teenagers (I hope!).
I stitched in an aqua liner to make more room for signatures, repeating the same frame on the inside to save a bit of space for an "official" thank-you message. (Pardon the yellow nail polish!)
If you didn't already come from there, go check out the official Friends with Flair post at the Unity Blog -- there's lots of good stuff to check out, including some great sales!
Before you go, meet Simon:
He's all of 8 weeks old, and very feisty and sweet, all at once. You'll be seeing more of him, for sure!! Can't wait to start scrapping his cute little face :)
Hope you have a delightful weekend!
