Many Thanks Set

One of the "To Do" items on my list this week was to make a set of six thank you cards as a Christmas gift for one of my Daughter's teachers. With so much that still needs to be done for Christmas, I wanted (I NEEDED) the cards to be very quick and easy. Recently, I purchased Taylor's newest Taylored Kit and really liked the simple layout she used for the cards, so I decided to use the same layout. I found this patterned paper in my stash and thought is was just PERFECT. The paper is called "A Is For Apple" and it's from the Scribble Scrabble Autumn Afternoon Collection. I used Bazzill Old Flame and Bazzill Hillary cardstock to match and stamped the sentiment on SU! Naturals Ivory cardstock in Bravo Burgundy ink. The stamp is from the SU! Lots of Thoughts set. I got the idea to use just the "Many Thanks" part from hudsonhannah on SCS and you can view her cards that inspired me here. I used Bravo Burgundy ink to stamp the sentiment and the polka dot ribbon is from Taylored Expressions. I also stamped matching envelopes using the Teacher's Apple set from PAPERTREYink. The apple is stamped in Bravo Burgundy, the stem in Close to Cocoa, and the leaf in Old Olive. I actually made three different cards with different ribbon (two of each), but I'm just showing you one of them here. I packaged the cards and envelopes in a Clearly Creative Card Box from PAPERTREYink and tied the same ribbon around the box. Thanks for stopping by. I hope everyone is having a GREAT day!!!
