When I make Thank You cards, I usually make a whole bunch at one time because I tend to use these up pretty quickly. The thing is, I send Thank You cards for a variety of reasons, so the So Very Much Sale-A-Bration stamp set gives me some great versatility with the great script "Thank You" focal point image. For this card, I used the "For Your Kindness" sentiment, but the stamp set also includes the sentiments of "So Very Much", "For The Gift", and "From All Of Us". That pretty much covers it all for me!
This card begins with a card base of Emerald Envy cardstock. A panel of Dapper Denim, slightly smaller than the card front, mats an Emerald Envy pattern from the Moroccan Designer Series Paper pack. Two strips of paper were adhered across the patterned paper (the reverse side of the Emerald Envy pattern).
The "Thank You" script was stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock using Dapper Denim ink and cut out with Paper Snips. The script was adhered to the card front slightly to the left of center using Stampin' Dimensionals. The "For Your Kindness" sentiment was stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock using Dapper Denim ink and punched with the Classic Label punch. The sentiment was adhered to the patterned paper at the bottom right of the script.
The inside sentiment area was lined with a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock. A narrow strip of Dapper Denim cardstock was adhered behind the upper edge of a strip of Designer Series Paper (matching the narrow strips on the card front) and the two adhered along the bottom edge of the liner leaving a wide area to write a thoughtful note.
The Designer Series Paper was adhered to the flap of the Medium Very Vanilla Envelope and trimmed to match the edge of the envelope flap using Paper Snips.
I love the color combination of Dapper Denim and Emerald Envy--so bright and happy. Just the right feeling to convey sincere thanks.
