I needed to make a stack of thank-you notes.  And use some of all that gorgeous 6×6 patterned paper I've been collecting.  Made 8 cards; only a small dent in one pad of Indian Summer by Basic Grey.  But, I'm so stoked over how they all turned out–because I'm not very good at using patterned papers.  I love them, love to look at them, pet them (yes, I pet my paper goodies) but actually using them often confounds me.  Because my personal safety zone is a simple white card.

Armed with an assortment of layout sketches I've always wanted to try, 2 6×6 paper collections, and just a few rubber stamps, I was able to produce 8 very simple thank-you cards that I really REALLY like! YAY!!!

  1. I just saw your comments on SCS and had to visit your blog….WOW on this set of cards! Pretty sure I’ve seen your creations on the Late Night Stampers Blog as well…and perhaps here and other places. You are truly an inspiration – TFS!!!

  2. Beautiful and love the shape of that tag! Now if only I had a Slice machine that actually worked!

  3. ITA…patterned paper is sooo pretty to collect and pet, but not so easy to use. You did a great job with this one!
