Fast Friday Card :: Thank You





TGIF! Today, I am sharing a fast card. It took about 10 minutes to make. Stamping the background pattern is the most time consuming part, but the pattern is easy to align to create a perfect pattern. This card can easily reproduced as gifts or for those last minute thank you notes. Changing the colors can be a breeze too!

Instructions
  1. Trim kraft cardstock to an A2 size by trimming 8.5" x 11" cardstock in half horizontally.
  2. Stamp background pattern. TIP: Stamp from the top down to prevent inking your hands!
  3. Stamp sentiment, trim, add rhinestones and adhere to card front.
  4. Doodle white dots.
Supplies
  • Stamps :: Papertrey Ink - giga guidelines
  • Ink :: Clear Snaps - colorbox mint, chestnut
  • Paper :: Papertrey Ink - kraft, white
  • Embellishments :: Kaiser Craft - rhinestones; Uniball - white signo broad gel pen
