Thank You Card (a Stampin’ Up! post)

A thank you card

It’s been a looooong while since posting about card making or scrapbooking! As the new Stampin’ Up! Catalog debuted this month, the excitement has me itching to get back into my beloved hobby. I’m hoping to post many more cards and projects. I have a baby shower I am planning for my best friend, Amy, so I will have to share with you the excitement and cute things I have come up with. For today, it’s a thank you card. The colors I used were Orchid Opulence (a retired color), So Saffron, and Poppy Parade (in color 2010-2012) The bottom half of the card is embossed using a Big Shot and the textured impressions plate “vintage wallpaper.” This is a very quick and easy card to make. I like to keep things as simple as possible while stamping. I got the inspiration for this card directly off the online shopping page for Stampin’ Up! You can enter the storefront by clicking the paper and ink image on the right of the screen. There are tons of really cute ideas. It goes to show that it doesn’t take pioneering an entire craft, sometimes the best idea is to go with one that’s already tried and true! Why reinvent the wheel, right? 😉 We needed a thank you card for the condo we stayed at in Florida. We would not have had a vacation without it!!
