thankful for you





I needed a couple thank you cards...  

I decided to work with the Fancy Pants Designs, True Friend collection.

There's something about the color yellow, so fresh, fun & happy!

cardstock:  papertrey ink/kraft  paper:  fancy pants design/true friend  stamps:  reverse confetti/forever fall  ink:  zing/white  other:  confetti cuts/love note, paper accents/vellum, fancy pants designs/burlap & bouquets/flair

The flair is actually from Fancy Pants Designs' Burlap & Bouquets collection, but I thought it worked well.

Next up is a more fall inspired thank you:

cardstock:  papertrey ink  paper:  fancy pants design/true friend  stamps:  reverse confetti/lots to say & whole lotta dots  ink:  zing/white, misc/clear embossing powder  other:  confetti cuts/love note, paper accents vellum, stampin' up wood element

The panel on the left has been clear embossed with Reverse Confetti's Whole Lotta Dots.  It's a fun way to add more texture to a card.  Gotta love the Stampin' up, Autumn Wooden Elements.

Each of the cards use Reverse Confetti's Love Note which I cut in vellum for the base and then cut another panel with patterned paper and fussy cut the center panel.

I was inspired by Reverse Confetti's



I'm also linking up to the Catered Crop for their
