Wedding Thank You's

Just a real simple thank you note to match our real simple wedding.  I pulled out a stamp set by Hero Arts, that I haven't used in a long time, Sweet & Simple Patterns.  It comes with 4 different stamps.  I used a rectangle die to cut out the stamp and used the matching scalloped die to add a bottom layer.  A tiny flower punch with a mini brad in the center finished off the note card which was embossed with the Polka Dot EF.  These were easy and quick to make and very cost effective to mail.

Thanksgiving Blessings

Yea...Me!  Thanksgiving cards made and mailed!!  I am trying to turn over a new leaf and mail out all those cards that I make with the intention of mailing instead of, OOPS...there they sit in my craft room. 

I made this card with the intention of mass producing and mailing with a regular stamp.  I kept it simple, with no bulk.  GEEZ...mailing a bulky card costs are outrageous and when you are mailing around 20 Thanksgiving cards, they need to be able to be mailed with just one little regular stamp. 

I started with a Kraft card stock card base and added strips of DP and a piece of embossed card stock.  The sentiment was stamped and punched out with SU! punches. I sometime tend to forget about my punches and always reach for my dies. It's time to give a little love to the punches.  I absolutely love this D2D design, Stitched Pumpkin.  It was perfect for my simple, little card.

Stamps - Stitched Pumpkin (D2D), Thanksgiving Blessings (Printworks)
Paper - Pumpkin Pie (American Crafts), Amber Autumn (DCWV)
Coloring - Copics
Misc - 1 1/2" circle and scallop punch (SU!), Just My Type EF (Provo Craft)
