Elegant Thank You!

I LOVE this little "Thank You" stamp. It's by Stampin' Up! and it is sold individually!!! I LOVED that idea too!!! The flower came from the Stampin' Up! "Flower Fancy" set.

This was a pretty quick card to make too. I stamped the flower on the Almost Amethyst card stock using Almost Amethyst ink. Then I cut the black layer and then the white layer to fit.

I stamped the words in the middle and set it aside to dry. While it was drying I stamped the flower and punched it out using the 1-1/4" circle punch. Then I punched out an Almost Amethyst circle using the 1-3/8" punch and the scallop was punched out using Basic Black. I don't have the new circle cutter yet so I'm still using punches.

I tied some satin ribbon around the front panel of the card and trimmed the edges. See, not a whole lot to making this card. I mailed one off the other day and much to my surprise it cost more to send. Not just the 43 cents and the 17 cents extra. That is for thickness. It was 62 cents to mail this because it is non-machinable. WOW!!! All of those other cards I sent out must have arrived with a 2 cent collection or they squeaked by!!!

Lucky you, a card to view and a little information on mailing cards!!! LOL

Thank you ever so much for visiting today,

Since I was the recipient of this card from Wonderful Wanda, I have to say when I pulled it out of the envelope, it truly took my breath away by it's elegance. It was worth the extra $$ to send it to me Wanda!!! Thanks! Sue Lehrer

What an awesome and simple thank you card, Wanda. I love your ideas... I wonder if other ribbon would still have made the postage be 62¢?
