Elegant Thank You

Yaaay! It's Wednesday, HUMP DAY and only two more work days until the weekend! This was such a long weekend for me, I hardly want to return to work, but the inspiration makes me feel glad that I have a great job to return to in the end.

This card is a very, very simple card I decided to design because I had to make multiples. I am sending out a few thank you notes and I wanted them to be elegant, yet fun. So, the labels die and the elegant thank you sentiment coupled with the polka dotted ribbon give me what I wanted.

The new Stampin' Up! catalog just debuted this week and I'm looking forward to placing my first order before the month ends. I've tried to get into the habit of waiting a week or so just to make sure my choices are definite, in that I will use everything I order!

So, I probably will be having a stamp sale coming up soon!! For those of you looking to find some retired sets, I just may have what you're looking for! I'm also looking to sell my HP A636 Photo Printer, plus supplies, such as carrying case, ink, and photo paper. If you are interested let me know as soon as possible and I will hold it for you. The reason being is that I got another photo printer and am really trying to conserve on my space so I decided to give this one up. It's a great photo printer you can easily carry along to crops or other places in the carrying case. It is very lightweight and prints photos fast.

Instructions for the simple card (as if you really needed them!)
  1. For this card, I took a pre-scored A7 card, then trimmed it down to 4.25" x 5.5" to make it an A2 card. It was just a bit too large for the simple design I had in mind. So that may be a little trick when you want to use pre-scored cards in a certain color!
  2. Die cut labels.
  3. Stamp sentiment.
  4. Add pearls.
  5. Adhere ribbon around card base.
  6. Adhere label to card base center front.

Hi Ashley. How much are you going to sell the photo printer for? I just might be interested. Thanks.

Very elegant indeed!
(I'm able to comment now under 'anonymous'- tried to do the name/URL, not knowing if I could just leave my name without a URL, but I guess I can't. Thanks for adding the 2 other options!)
