It is always a good idea to keep thank you notes around; you never know when you may need them. I am really addicted to making square cards right now. The 4 inch cards are the perfect size for jotting down a quick note. Sometimes with larger cards I feel like I have to fill the card otherwise it looks empty on the inside....but I digress. Another great thing about 4 inch cards is that you can make 9 cards with just one 12 x 12 sheet of paper. That's getting your money's worth! For this card I used the new flocked vellum from Making Memories. It was so fun to play with. The rest of this card came together very fast. This card is a great template for taking a piece of patterned paper that you love and making cute and sendable cards! I was able to hide the adhesive at the bottom of the card under the ribbon...just in case you were wondering.
