Trio of Simple Thanks

Published by at 9 20 pm under General Purpose Cards

Today I combined 2 challenges to create this trio of simple thank you cards. The colors of So Saffron, Bravo Burgundy and Handsome Hunter were taken from today’s Color Challengeat SCS, and my basic layout was taken from my good friend, Barb Schram, who was the Featured Stamperon Sunday over at SCS. Barb’s Blog can be seen here. Here are my cards:


I knew I wanted to do something quick and simple for thank you notes, and I was so pleased to find this simple and lovely card in Barb’s gallery. Now Barb went to a lot more work with her card in cutting out her little man, whereas I used a Labels One Nestabilities by Spellbinders to quickly cut and emboss my Thank You sentiment. I also corner rounded the bottoms.


Stamps: Thank You by Stampendous

Paper: SU Very Vanilla, So Saffron, Handsome Hunter. Wonderland DP by Cosmo Cricket

Ink: SU Bravo Burgundy

Accessories: Labels One Nestabilities by Spellbinders, SU Corner Rounder.

Thanks much for stopping in. I do have a lot more thank you notes to come up with and I want to start on Valentines soon for The Ultimate Valentine Challenge. Check it out here if you haven’t read about it yet. Happy New Year everyone!!! Be safe!!!!

    I love these cards, Sharon! The paper is just wonderful and could be either masculine or feminine. The label die and the rounded bottom corners really add to the design. They don’t give the impression of being plain or simple at all!
