Hi everyone! I hope you’re having a great week! It’s turned quite chilly here – a mere 21 degrees when we got up at 3:30 AM this morning – and we love it! Affiliate links are used in this post at no cost to you – I really appreciate your support! I am once again making time to play in The Outlawz Challenges, and have this pretty thank you note card to share in the Sunday Songs & Rhymes Challenge. Our sponsor this fortnight is Makenna Kroulik so come on over and play! We were given the song “Autumn Serenade” for inspiration, and these gorgeous leaves in the Prickley Pear Stamps Oak & Maple Leaf 2 stamp set really spoke to me. What a beautiful background for a thank you note card, and we always need thank you cards in our stash!
I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base and a layering panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, along with an additional layering panel from Papertrey Ink Terracotta Tile cardstock, and rounded the four corners on all of them. I stamped the background using the Prickley Pear Stamps Oak & Maple Leaf 2 stamp set in various colors of Ranger archival inks, and layered the panel on the terracotta tile cardstock panel and then to the card base. I stamped the sentiment, trimmed it and rounded the corners. I layered it on a scrap of the terracotta tile cardstock and adhered it to the center of the panel. I finished the front with random dots of Crystal Drops over the background piece and both sides of the sentiment.
I cut the inside panel from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, embellished it with a wide strip of Papertrey Ink Terracotta Tile cardstock, and layered it on a terracotta tile cardstock panel. I left the panel blank, leaving plenty of room to write a custom thank you message.
And one more peek… so loving how this background turned out! These stamps are just gorgeous and created such a beautiful background!
