Thank you cards

Hi everyone! I was totally smitten with some card sets that Dawn McVey recently posted on her blog here and here. So I CASED a couple of her designs, just changing colors and a few of the stamps, and came up with these quick Christmas gift sets.

I recycled some PTI stamp boxes (the 15.00 size), to package the cards. Each box contains 3 thank you cards with envelopes. I used ribbon to decorate the outside of the box, and I put some red paper shreds to fill in the extra space (the box is 6X6 but the cards are A2 size).

The first card you see below in the gift box is the one Dawn made in Plum, Lavender, and Cream; I decided to use Pure Poppy and Berry Sorbet for my card.




For this next card Dawn used Aqua, Kraft and Cream, and again I went with the Pure Poppy and Berry Sorbet. I also used a different border stamp on mine (it's from Waltzingmouse Stamps). I don't have a picture of the 3rd card in the set, unfortunately I couldn't get it to photograph well at all.




I'm so grateful to Dawn for sharing these card sets, it really helped me to make some gifts super FAST!

  7. Love the cards Diane, but the Thanks for Everything is my favorite. I especially like the black design behind the Mat Stack. I wouldn't have thought of it, but it actually really jumped out at me as being such a nice touch. I also love that WM border. It goes so nicely with the other stamps you chose.
