Another Round

Of baby thank you cards, that is! I love the simplicity of this batch.

This is a great layout to use up scraps. Besides the actual card base, every piece of paper and card stock on the 18 cards I made came from the scrap pile. You've got to love that!

The cards themselves are the small note cards. They measure 3.5" by 7" and are the perfect size for a thank you note. Just enough room to write your message without leaving a bunch of white space inside. ;)

Since there is no Soft Sky marker, I just dipped a blender pen into the ink pad. That made coloring in the diaper pins a breeze.

Stamps: Seeing Spots, Short & Sweet
Ink: Palette Noir Black, Soft Sky
Basic Black, Whisper White, Soft Sky, Soft Sky Prints designer paper
Accessories: Black gingham ribbon, Pop-up glue dots

Tools: 1 3/8" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, scallop circle punch, Blender Pens

To show a little versatility (and in case you are sick of the baby thank yous), I modified this card to be a girly birthday thank you card. The patterned paper here is from the Petals & Paisleys designer series paper. I like the way the regal rose scalloped circle contrasts with the pretty in pink patterned paper. To finish it up, I used the small corner rounder punch to create a scalloped edge at the bottom of the card. A little glitter was the final touch.

Stamps: Seeing Spots, Short & Sweet

Accessories: Chocolate Taffeta ribbon, Dazzling Diamonds, Pop-up glue dots

Tools: 1 3/8" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, scallop circle punch, Small Corner Rounder, Two-way glue pen

Fabulous! I was just sitting here thinking I needed to come up with a super fast layout so that I can whip up some thank you cards in a jif. Thanks for the inspiration!
