A Quick Thank You

Here's a quick thank you card that lends itself to making a dozen (or two, or six) at a time. I found several pieces for this card while sorting through my stash so I'm procrastinating sharing.

Thank you, Bazzill, Bling, cardstock, Spellbinders, Cuttlebug, embossing, folder, heat embossing, Memento
Start with a 5.5" x 4.25" cardstock base, then add two layers of cardstock cut with a Spellbinders Nestabilities label and a third label with a sentiment. Emboss and ink the Spellbinders layers as you wish and... tada! All you need is a standard size envelope available at any office stationary store.

I made six dozen of these in a day for a bride to coordinate with her wedding invitations. She requested Bazzill Bling cardstock for the base and first label layer. The second label layer was plain white cardstock embossed with Cuttlebug's Thank you folder and inked with Memento ink (Lilac) to highlight the design. On top of that was "Thank you" heat-embossed onto lilac cardstock cut with a Sizzix die and inked with Memento's New Sprout. Glue dots made assembly a breeze!

This basic design can be adapted to just about any occasion or stamp, and can even be partially done ahead of time with just the top label to add as a final step.

But enough with my procratinating! Back to sorting/cleaning/straightening so I can have some more fun.
