Avery Elle - Simple Thank You

This is the second card in my stamp trio challenge, using Avery Elle's Many Thanks stamp set.

This card was very simple to create, and it uses only a few supplies. So it's perfect for beginners or for occasions when you just need a super quick card.

I started by creating a base from a piece of Avery Elle's Whipped Cream cardstock. I cut the cardstock in half to measure 5 1/2 by 8 1/2", and scored in the middle to create the standard A2 card (5 1/2 by 4 1/4").

For the paper, I wanted to continue with the sunset-like theme, so I chose a piece of paper from Authentique's Radiant 6x6 paper pad. I cut it to measure 3 3/4 by 5". I also cut a piece of Avery Elle's Fizz cardstock to measure 4 x 5 1/4". I adhered the patterned paper to fizz cardstock.

I cut a 3 1/2" by 5" strip of vellum. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark ink, and embossed it with Ranger's Platinum embossing powder. I adhered the strip to the front panel by wrapping it around the front and securing with a piece of tape.

I adhered the front panel to the card base. As a last touch, I added 3 shimmering gold sequins to the upper right of the card.

  1. This card proves that you don't need to spend hours (although there is nothing wrong with that haha) to create a lovely card. :)

    1. Exactly!

      I do often need to remind myself that sometimes you can get a fantastic card without having to spend 3 hours making it. And the quicker cards are good to have when you want to gift someone an entire matching set.
