Thank You cards with Michelle Philippi

I make a lot of thank-you cards, but when it comes time that I need one right now right now it never fails that I don't have just the right one. So I sat down and made one special for a friend of mine the other day. I had knee surgery last month and was really surprised by the people that came through for me if you know what I mean. A wise lady once told me: you get yourself laid up in the hospital and you'll find out who your real friends are. She was right. Pleasantly surprised, I was. And for that I am grateful and giving thanks.
I love 5x5 cards. They are my favorite size card to make. Yes, there is some waste with the cardstock, but you can save that 3.5 x 11 strip and make a mini card with it ;)
The hardest part of 5x5 cards though really is the packaging. But if you're like me and you can't ever make a single layer card that fits in to a normal envelope anyway, that part is always an issue. I just use glassine bags though. They work perfectly. And they're fun to embellish to coordinate with the card too :)

I really dont have the basis why they commented "it looks so cool and unique" yet i didnt see any pictures here. I guess, maybe the site is not yet finished uploading photos:)
