Quick Cards

Ok first of all the coloring of these pictures is not the best. I had to take the picture at night in the kitchen and it just didn't turn out great.
I needed some thank you cards quick for some gifts we had gotten lately. I didn't have the brain power to sit and come up with a card idea, so I improvised. This is actually an easy way to customize a premade card.
I have had the card in my card box for some time now. Well it is a tri fold card with all white on the outside and green on the inside. I wanted something with some girly colors so I thought why not just add pink to the card somehow. So I grabbed some little buttons and added some twine though the button holes and tied them off. Then I wrapped some twine around the front flap of the card, glued on the buttons to the center of all the flowers and done. I think the entire thing took me longer to think up than to actually put together.
A quick way to add a personal touch to a premade card for sure. I am thinking I should grab some sets of premade cards (this one came from the dollar spot at Michaels early last year) and do this to a bunch of them so they are done and ready to go for when I need them.
