Simply elegant Thank You card!

Hello and welcome to today’s blog post, which is a beautiful card to let someone know how amazing they are! Whether it’s for a birthday, thank you, or just because, this quick and easy card features the Sunny Sentiments and Create with Friends stamp sets, Simply Elegant Specialty DSP, and some additional elements! I just love the Create with Friends stamp set, it is so easy to create your own sentiments, but I thought for this card, using the Sunny Sentiments stamp set for the inside just worked perfectly. Since the design I used for the base layer from the Simply Elegant DSP is very neutral, I wanted to dress it up with some pops of color, Magenta Madness and Night of Navy, which I love these two colors paired together!

The base layer is this design from the Simply Elegant DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”:

For the card front, you will need:

1. Use the third from the largest layering Stitched So Sweetly die to die-cut from Magenta Madness cardstock. I used my Stamparatus to line up the two stamps from Create with Friends on the die-cut cardstock, stamp in Versamark ink, and heat set with Silver Embossing Powder.

2. Use the second from the largest layering Stitched So Sweetly die to die-cut from Night of Navy cardstock, this will be layered under the above sentiment piece.

3. Cut about a 16” piece of Very Vanilla Scalloped Trim.

4. You will need three of the diamond shaped Silver Epoxy Essentials, not pictured.

I used my Stampin’ Seal to place a couple of strips in the middle of the base layer to adhere the Very Vanilla Scalloped Lace Trim, placed as shown:

The layered die-cut sentiment piece is adhered over the ribbon with dimensionals and the three diamond shaped silver epoxy dots are placed as shown. This completed piece is adhered to a Magenta Madness cardstock card base, cut at 4” x 11”, and scored at 5 ½”:

For the inside, cut a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamp the sentiment in Night of Navy ink, and adhere a ¾” x 4” strip of DSP along the bottom:

I just love the Create with Friends and Sunny Sentiments stamp sets combined! By using a simple sentiment from Create with Friends for the card front, you can make several of these cards and choose any of the Sunny Sentiments for the inside!

Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
