Next week, we are having a special staff retreat and appreciation party at work. As part of this day, all managers were asked to write thank you notes to their staff.
Managers were distributed note cards to write in but I just couldn’t use the ones I was given. They were simple, printed note cards in muted shades of color.
To be honest, I wouldn't use them myself but then I have a different standard of what I like to send to others. The cards represent me, and so I just have to make them special.
The first thing I did was print photos of some of my floral photographs. They were used to make the cards along with a nice watercolor, textured cardstock.
Each envelope was then hand lettered. I don’t do this too often so I am a little rusty but hopefully they won’t notice!
Lastly, I added a bit of embellishment using a rubber stamp on all but this last one. A hand written note of my thanks and appreciation to each, and they were done. Oh, to have the time to sit and practice my lettering.
