Simple Thank you cards
Gabriel decided that 4:30 a.m. was the time I should wake up this morning. I can't complain too much though because the pup has slept all night since we got him. Since we were up and awake I decided to make some simple thank you cards. These are, by no means, works of art. They are just some simple thank you cards that I whipped up. I need to make a variety and I thought these would lend themselves to a variety of colors and easy mass production.
The first is a summery sunny yellow and orange. Thank you very much is by Anna Griffin (All Night Media) stamps. The floral background stamp is Stampin' UP!. The scalloped eyelet edge is a Martha Stewart punch.
The second Thanks is with Martha Stewart robin egg blue card stock on which I used my cuttlebug thanks in many languages embossing folder. The ribbon was on the Michaels sale table called Sweet & Sassy ribbon. The white hydrangia flower was a fun find at the grocery store. I found this HUGE stalk of flowers for $4.00! I removed the petals and stored them. I must have hundreds upon hundreds of these pretty white silk flowers.
The third card is made on a lovely linen weave paper. I love this card stock. Again I used my Martha Stewart eyelet scallop punch for the border. The rose is from an All Night Media brass stencil to which I applied embossing paste, colored with Tombow markers and added a litte pink crystal to the center for a little BLING! The Many Thanks sentiment stamp is also an Anna Griffin (All Night Media) stamp.
I'm working on a Mary Engelbreit thank you card right now. Maybe I'll finish it later. Time to play with the pups!
