Quick, Simple And Yet Elegant

For tonight's card I wanted to make an elegant thank you card. One that could be used for a wedding thank you. The "French Flair" background stamp by Stampin' Up! was used here. I masked off the birds because I didn't want them on the card. I embossed the "flairs" in a Silver Pearl powder. I did the left bottom and right top corners. Then I took the "Greetings Galore" set and masked off the envelope with the hearts coming out of it because I wanted to use the "thank you" words on it. I wanted something short and thin for the "near center" of the card. I don't have many current word stamps left so I had to make do with what I had.

The photo doesn't do this card justice. I wanted some reflection from the flash so you could see the silver pearl embossing. I may try to rework this card at a later date. I do like the brushed silver card stock that is in the background too, it attributed to the cards elegant look.

This is a quick, simple and yet elegant thank you card.

Thank you for stopping by,
