Gracias


My daughter asked me to make a 'Mexican thank you card'.  Why Mexican? 'Because their wedding had a Mexican theme.' I'm guessing that was a 'classy' Mexican style, rather than cacti in sombreros! So, rather than go all-out for the stereotypical icons,  I tried to make a card with a Mexican feel.

I cut the sun,gecko and sentiment on my Silhouette Cameo electronic die-cutter and used scraps of patterned paper (not actually a Mexican pattern!).

I'd like to enter:

  8. This card does have a Mexican feel. Without googling I would think sombreros and tequilas, but you're spot on with this theme and it's definitely more classy than the ideas that popped to my mind...
