Easy Handmade Card Expresses Your Gratitude

IMG_5645

Do you love getting together in the Fall with friends and family?  Here’s the perfect way to say “Thank You” – an EASY PEASY yet elegant card you can make in a flash.  Start with a white card base and add orange rectangle to the front of the card that’s 1/4 inch smaller than the card base in both height and width.  Then choose your favorite patterned paper from the Into the Woods Designer Series Paper.  Again cut the patterned paper 1/4 inch smaller than the orange and adhere it to the orange cardstock with tape runner.  Stamp your sentiment from the Thankful Forest Friends Stamp Set using Expresso Ink.  Punch out the sentiment with a 2 3/4 inch circle punch.  Punch out a 2 1/2 inch circle from orange cardstock and attach with Stampin’ Dimensionals to make it pop up.  Attach to the card with tape runner.  The final touch – stamp the fall garland with expresso ink on the envelope flap.  You’ve got a very simple yet elegant card that anyone would be thrilled to receive.  Especially with a heartfelt message of appreciation inside!  IMG_5643
