Fresh Vintage Thank You Cards

 I am loving this Fresh Vintage set more and more!  I saw these cards on Jill's Card Creation website and I just had to make them. Of course I had someone special in mind when I made them.  Yesterday was my {SO much} older sister's birthday.  I can say that on here because I know she doesn't read my blog much.  Key word being "much" here and with my luck, today would be the day she reads it!!! But the truth is, she IS older than I am!!! LOL

Anyway, back to these fun cards.  I thought they were stunning and simple to make too.  SO I set out to make them.  First I took a half sheet of Basic Black card stock and stamped the circle flower image thing from the Fresh Vintage set.  I stamped it all over the card stock using VersaMark.  Then I used clear embossing powder and I heat set it. 

I cut the white card stock 5-3/8" x 4-1/8".  Then I stamped the large image on using black StazOn.  I wanted a sharp dark black image and that is what I got. 

I didn't have the word sets that Jill used so I used Perfectly Penned on the sideways card and on the tall card I used the "thank you" from Kindness Matters.  I'm sure I have lots of other sets that have words that will fit in those spaces.  So, back to my card.  I used the scalloped border edge punch and punched away!  I need 4 of them and they don't take long to make either.  After that was done I taped the white stamped pieces onto the black base of the card and then the punched edge piece went on.  And that was it!! Done in no time.  I did stamp my envelopes (yes Ann, they are stamped!!!).  And I put them in one of those plastic card holder "things" and tied a black ribbon around it.  I am giving this to my sister for her birthday.  It was yesterday and I had to laugh.  She was always one who got upset when mile marker birthdays rolled around.  She cried at 30 and she cried at 40 and we honestly don't know what she did at 50, we were all kind of afraid to know!! LOL  She turned 57 and was bummed because she actually thought she was turning 58 and only had 4 more years to work before she is going to retire.  What a nut!!  I think we may be looking for a home to put her in early!!! LOL  Silly girl!  Anyway, I will be seeing her this weekend and this pack of cards will be in the bag with the rest of her birthday "stuff"!  I LOVE birthdays.  I got a TON of birthday wishes on Face Book this year, I got lots of cards and even some gifts!!  Oh and dinner out too!  What more could one ask for??

Thank you for visiting today,
