A Thank You Gift

Evening Everyone,
I hope that you have had a good weekend.
I have managed to get a couple of things finished, including some Thank You cards which are ready to go in the post box tomorrow............ and it's still January so that is pretty amazing lol.
We played with some of the fabulous new 3D embossing folders recently, and they just seemed to lead quite nicely to a series of cards that I thought would make rather nice Thank You gifts.
The most difficult part of the whole proceedings was actually tracking down some small calenders. I found plenty for 2017. Who on earth is going to buy a 2017 calender pad in December of that very year!!!!
I used a combination of dual core card stock, distress inks, letterpress technique and gilding wax. And a few well placed gems.

Sorry for the rather picture heavy post but as you can see I just love, love, love this folder.
