Christmas is approaching and this year I have a head start on thank you cards. Wow, it is November…I am way ahead of the game. Actually, this is an idea I shared at The Christmas Gathering…hence the earlier timeline for me!
Before it gets too cold, take advantage of leaves still hanging around to get a picture for custom Thank You cards. I wanted to share a few ideas with you for fun ways to say “thank you”. These are all very simple ideas that I’m sure you’ve seen around. Here’s a glimpse at how they look different with the same kids and same setting.
My banner got tangled in the wind, but after untangling it…we accomplished some pictures. I just made this out of paper and twine. I used my Cameo to cut the letters.
Digitally add Thank You:
I wanted one last picture of them simply looking at me that I could add “thank you” with my computer. When you add text to an image it is good to think about where you will want to add the text. I was thinking I could add black text to the top right corner on the horizontal shots. I wanted to do some vertical, leaving space at the bottom for white text. It did not go as planned. As soon as the boys didn’t have anything in their hands, they became Ewoks.
Now, I know you all will ask for more details so here you go:
- The boy’s shirts and FireCracker’s dress are all compliments of the Tea Collection. Here are the direct links (from left to right): Blue shirt, Striped shirt, Dress, plaid shirt
