Thank You x 2 (A Little Embellished)

I had purchased the Thank You x 2 card kit from Stampin' Up! to be able to make cute, fast, easy, but pretty Thank You cards. I like this kit so much that I think I need to order more! The kit comes with the pre-scored, pre-scalloped cards, an Old Olive stamping spot, the stamp set, Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, and Old Olive envelopes.

The card fronts are already done! Yes, the cirlces, the embossed dots, and swirls are already there (Chocolate Chip)! How cool is that!

What I added and did a little differently to add a little something more....
Vertical Layout
  1. In one sample, I added a 1-1/2 inch x 5 inch piece of Kraft patterned paper from the Parisian Breeze designer series paper (DSP) pack. I made the card in a vertical layout, used the retired 1/8" Circle Handheld Punch to punch wholes in all the scallops, and then added the strip of DSP to the right side of the inside of the card.
  2. Stamped the little dots in Old Olive and the small flower in Old Olive in desired areas of the card front.
  3. Stamped greeting in the upper left corner.

Horizontal, Landscape Layout

  1. On the other, horizontal layout sample, I added a 3/4 inch x 5 inch strip to the inside of the card right above where I stamped the greeting.
  2. Only stamped the greeting in the bottom, right, and then the small green flowers every other scallop.
I'd love to see your creations! Buy this set!
