SUO Challenge #134

Thank You Very Much


SUOC134-Pam001How often do you remember to say "Thank You" in a tangible way?  Handmade cards are a great way to send a very special Thank You to friends and family.  Saying Thank You can also be for so many reasons.  I love sending a Thank You card just to say "thanks" for being a friend and there when I need you but also for so many other reasons.

For this challenge with SUO Challenges, our theme is to create a Thank You Very Much card which can be a general thanks or even more specific with Thanksgiving.  I opted to stick with a general Thank You card with a gender neutral feel and managed to channel my inner fall feelings.  

The card base starts with a must have item… Whisper White Thick Cardstock! I used the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to set the tone for the card front.  I love the white on white base.  The stamp set is For All Things.

I stamped the background watercolor image with Old Olive Ink but stamped off before I stamped the final image as I wanted it to be lighter.  As I visualized the card, I knew I wanted lots of white space so placed the stamped images to the left of the card front space leaving lots of extra white space.  I then stamped the leaves using Soft Suede.  The stamped card front is attached to Old Olive card stock then I added a banner using the Into the Woods Designer Series Paper.  The Triple Banner punch is AWESOME and another MUST HAVE item.

Thank You card created by Pam Staples, Stampin' Up! Independent Demonstrator.  I love the Greetings Thinlits.  #stampinup #sunnygirlscraps #greetingthinlits #fallcardsAnother MUST HAVE item is the Greetings Thinlits!  I love these versatile thinlits and use them often.  The Thanks is the perfect sentiment to go along with the Thank You theme for the SUO Challenges.  I opted to use Tangelo Twist for the sentiment for just a pop of fall color!  The finishing touch was to add the Gold Metalic button tied with a Linen Thread bow.  This is a great card for anyone.
