Earlier in the week, I shared a sample of a Thank You card that I'd made with all NEW products – from the 2012 Sale-a-Bration catalog. But today I'm taking a hint from fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator (and my 2nd upline) Sandy Hancock, and using up some of my left over Christmas paper to make those Thank You notes!
This was a quick card that I made last night with scraps from the Letters to Santa Designer Series Paper that is featured in the 2012 Stampin' Up! Idea Book and Catalog. While you and I know it came from Christmas paper, there's no design that requires it to be used on a Christmas card (no santas or ornaments). But sending it out this time of the year, with red and green as the main color, still feels holiday-ish to me!
The red here is Riding Hood Red and the green is Old Olive. The Taffeta Ribbon is also Riding Hood Red. My first go round with this card had the background Riding Hood Red Card Stock looking awfully plain, so I pulled out the Snow Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to give it a bit more interest. Good News – this Embossing Folder will still be available after the Holiday Mini expires next week!
Here is the sketch that I used for this card. It's not a new sketch, but it's been awhile since I used it. I just love having sketches around and this one was on page 43 of my 2010 Greeting Card Layout eBook, which is still available on a CD. Just check over on the right for more information about both of my Card Layout eBooks! Of course, the sketch in the eBook has all the measurements included!
I hope you're having fun making your own Thank You cards after a fun holiday season! I still have a couple more to make and hope to be able to share them before the year is out!
