Thank You Cards

Hello Friends! I have a few thank you cards to share today. I used the Oh Happy Day stamp set from Avery Elle. I went old school on these, and used just card stock, stamps and patterned paper, dies, punches or embellishments. Nice and simple and very quick and easy to make.

I really enjoyed building the 'back ground' paper for these. I just grabbed several ink pads and got busy. Don't you just love the font on that greeting? It's the whole reason I bought this set. It looks handwritten...LOVE it! I used a straight edge and a multi-liner pen to create the solid black lines above and below the greeting. Then, I used my Wink of Stella glitter pen to add a little shimmer to each flower center. I adhered the focal panel with dimensionals and that's all there was to it. Easy peasy.

That's all for me today. Thanks for stopping by!

Oh gosh, I really like these, Barb. I like the simplicity of what is needed to create them, the font of the sentiment, the colors and the random stamping looks fabulous. Looks like a pattern paper for sure. Love it!

Barb, your random stamped backgrounds are so colorful and pretty. I definitely love the font of the sentiment. The black lines really make the sentiment pop against the flowers. Great CAS cards!
