Elegant Thank You's!

Evening all!

Thank Goodness it's the weekend after the week I've had. It's an extended bank holiday weekend here for those of us in the UK, so I have now got 3 days off! Plenty of timeto get crafty and take a wander around blogland!

Before I show you today's card, I just want to say a huge thank you for all the comments I received on my last post. A whopping 59 comments. I have NEVER in my whole 3 years of blogging ever has that many comments on one of my posts and I am just absolutely thrilled at all your comments, so thanks again!

Today I thought I would share some thank you cards I made to give to my friends and guests who came to my wedding in March! I got the Elegant Thank You stamp as part of my starter kit, as I knew I wanted to use this beautifull stamp to create a simple design for my Thank You cards. I made about 40 in total, 10 each in 4 different colour ways. The cards were approximately 10cm square, a perfect size to showcase this stamp!

Firstly here it is in Pear Pizzaz...

.... and then Baja Breeze....

..followed by Rich Razzleberry....


..and to finish Not Quite Navy...

Here they all are together....



Materials


CS: SU Very Vanilla, Pear Pizzaz, Rich Razzleberry, NOt Quite Navy & Crumb Cake

Stamps: SU Elegant Thank You from the a la Carte range

Tools: SU Square lattice embossing folder

Misc: SU Crumb Cake and Rich Razzleberry Ink


So which colour is your favourite?? I'll be intrigued to find out! Mine is the Rich Razzleberry, simply because these are also the colours I used for my wedding invitations, so they match! I also like how striking the Thank You stamp looks against the Vanilla background when stamped in Razzleberry too!

Such a simple design, but I was really pleased with the results! I just LOVE this square lattice embossing folder, can't get enough of it!

Well thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a lovely BH weekend!

Hugs, Victoria ~x~
