Simple Thank You Card

I recently switched departments at work and my co-worker gave me some homemade cookies and also bought me lunch as a token of her appreciation.  She also wrote me a very sweet note.

So, I needed a Thank You card to show my appreciation at her very sweet and thoughtful gesture.  Tonight, I decided to go ahead and make one instead of using a store bought card.

It's a very simple card - but I like the way it turned out.  I didn't want a bunch of embellishments on this one.

  • 5x7 Card (White)
  • Black Mat (from Making Memories Matstack)
  • DCWV Garden Party Matstack w/ Glitter
  • Ribbon - Red with Silver Borders
  • Red & Pink Cardstock
  • Clear Embossing Pad
  • Red Embossing Powder
  • Heat Gun
  • Storybook Cartridge
To make the card, I took the 5x7 card and covered the front with a piece of black paper.  I then selected the cardstock from the DCWV Garden Party Matstack and wrapped the ribbon around the left side.  I taped the ribbon down on the back and then adhered the cardstock to the black background.  Next, I cut out the "Thank You" sentiment at 1" in pink cardstock using the Storybook Cartridge.  Then, I repeated this step using the red cardstock and selected shadow prior to cutting.  I layered my sentiment using the 1" Xyron.  Since the sentiment was welded, I cut the sentiment apart to create 2 separate words and then adhered them to the front of the card.

For the inside, I selected one of the "Thank You" phrases from the Scrappy Cat Thank You clear stamp set.  Using the clear embossing pad, I stamped the sentiment on the inside, covered the sentiment using my red embossing powder, and then applied heat using the heat gun to melt the powder.

I'll also add a personal note to the inside....but didn't want to include that in the picture. :-)

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.  I would love to hear what you think.
