Make It Monday #162 with Nicecrane Designs

 
 
Welcome!!!
 
We are fortunate to have Nicecrane Designs as our sponsor this week at Make It Monday. On my cards I'm featuring the Butterfly Twinchies Collage Sheet. Each image is twinchie size, 2x2, and is easy to print and assemble onto a card.
 
I needed a few thank you cards and I'm also thinking ahead to the Christmas season which is nearly upon us. Hard to believe, isn't it! These card sets would make great gifts for teachers, busy moms or the elderly. I finished a card folder to share how I plan to give these. Each folder can be customized to suit the recipient's taste and my only caution is this. If you plan to place flowers or embellishments on the front of the card you will need to allow for a deep pocket to store them in. I followed this tutorial here and chose to keep the front of my cards low profile so they'd fit nicely into the pocket and I wouldn't have to make any adjustments. ;)
