A quick and easy thank you card to share on a Manic Monday. One of the things I have been known to struggle with is sending cards. Not necessarily creating them, or writing them, or even mailing them, but actually keeping the flow going from step one to three! So I have to try to keep it as easy as possible for myself – hence this quick and easy thank you card! The less I have to do to get the card created, the less chance there is for me to get sidetracked along the way…..that’s the theory at least!!
The Colo(u)r Theory Designer Series Paper Stack makes this card stand out – without too much work. There’s a great choice of ombré patterned papers in different colours. You get four sheets of each of the double printed designs – and all the sheets are 6″ x 6″ so good for cardfronts! There are 48 sheets in all, so imagine how many of these quick and easy thank you cards you could make! This background cardstock is Old Olive, same colour as this particular sheet of Designer Series Paper, (no brain work involved in colour picking!), and embossed with the Seaside Embossing Folder. I aligned the ridges vertically so that they echoed the vertical lines of the ombré progression. The sentiment is from the One Big Meaning stamp set, available in wood mount or clear mount. It’s stamped in Early Espresso, which is also the cardstock behind the strip of Designer Series Paper.
A reminder that the Colo(u)r Theory Designer Series Paper is one of the papers included in the current Buy 3 Get 1 Free promotion! Until the end of the month on selected styles of Stampin’ Up! Designer Series Papers, you can buy three packages and get the fourth one for free! If you are entering the order yourself at the YamStamps Online Stampin’ Up! Canada store, you’ll want to enter the 3 most inexpensive papers FIRST (hint: Stacks), and have the most expensive paper (hint: Specialty Designer Series Paper) as the fourth one you enter, because that’s the one that will be free. And YES – you get to pick which one you get for free! So if you’ve had your eye on the Just Add Colo(u)r 12 x 12 Specialty Designer Series Paper, now is the time to grab it…because you could get it for free. Stampin’ Up! has new alcohol based markers coming soon (I’ll write more about them before you are able to purchase them on November 1st, don’t worry), so you can stock up on this colouring paper and be set to play with the new Stampin’ Blends!
If you’re attending the CreativFest / Scrapfest October 26 – 28, be sure to stop by my booth – I’ll have samples of all the selected Designer Series Papers that are part of the sale, so you can see them in person! (oh, and there may be a show special on orders….just saying…). See you soon!
