Pop-Up Star Thank You Cards

I always try to send my thank you cards out before the New Year, but that means making them before Christmas (a busy time) or crafting very simple ones.  This year I purchased the Sizzix pop-up star die (the one that fits into the basic card die)  from Ben Franklin Crafts.  With these dies and some Martha Stewart and SN@P color vibe 12x12 cardstock papers., the bases for these cards were quickly made.  Using the Dandelion Designs panda stamp and the American Crafts Amy Tangerine word stamp, these cards were easily completed.  Final touches included a stamped thank you and the addition of epoxy hearts.

The inside of the card can be further enhanced by slipping a small photo behind the star cut out. Okay, I'm ready to write heartfelt thank you messages and pop these cards in the mail.  It feels great to wind up the year relatively stress-free thanks to the wonderful products I've found at Ben Franklin Crafts.  I wish all of you a beautiful and crafty 2013.  Hope I see you often in blogland!
