I always need a stack of thank you cards. But lately the need has been even greater. So many friends have helped me as I’ve prepared to move. I’ve had friends come over and help me do a bit of painting, cleaning and packing. Not only was their help wonderful for getting a lot done, it also was just GREAT to have the company and moral support. When I was a kid I used to beg my sister to just come sit in my room with me while I cleaned. I’m a social cleaner, for sure.
I love to find a design that’s cute AND fast. Washi tape came to the rescue on this note card. I started with the note card pack of precut cards and envelopes. And the Gingham Garden Washi Tape comes as a pack of these three patterns that harmonize together. Just tear off three strips and adhere for an instant colorful design.
And four punches really amped up the quick and fun factor. I stamped ‘Gee, thanks’ from Really Good Greetings and punched it out with the Modern Label punch, then punched the end with a corner of the 1″ square punch.
The punched sentiment was layered on the base stamped with the Label Love stamp and punched out with the new and coordinating Artisan Label punch. The center was decorated with a scallop circle punched from Whisper White cardstock spruced up with the Gingham wheel.
I used the same Gingham wheel to decorate the envelope flop for a coordinated surprise. Don’t you just love getting a note card with a decorated envelope?! Not much chance it will be mistaken as junk mail when you embellish the envelope.
