So the other day my boss asked me to get a card for Doug. Doug is one of our volunteers at Habitat. He is known best for arriving right after lunch with a big bag of those little bite sized candy bars, picking up after the job is done, and his meticulous paint jobs. Being a wee bit unsteady on his feet, he usually avoids the ladders. It's entirely possible he is my favorite, but then I have a lot of favorite volunteers. Doug is getting a card because on every new build, they place a tree as a memorial for his wife Debbie and we wanted to thank him for buying trees this past spring (ok so it's a bit belated, but things in not for profit land generally take a bit longer). And of course I couldn't BUY a card for this cool dude...oh no. I had to MAKE one by hand.
I thought this awesome Apple Shaped Card Template from THE CUTTING CAFE worked a treat as thank you for someone buying trees (and candy bars, those are important too). I opted to take apart one our pins for the front. Getting the white embossed dots was simply a matter of inking up the embossing folder before I ran it though the Big Shot.
I stamped the thank you with StazOn ink on some of the clear cardstock that Regina sells over a the Cafe which I then stapled on. Added a few hearts and some flowers to go with my tree theme.
Sparkle glitter around the edges and some paint splatters and I'm ready to get this card to Doug! We're off working on a rehab tomorrow so we'll need all the help we can get from Candy Bar Dude Doug!
