Thank You Mini Notes with Sizzix

AudreyPettit Sizzix EnvelopeThanksNotecard
One of my most-needed card supplies is simple thank you cards, and yet I rarely seem to have one on-hand.  This year, I’ve vowed to create a stash of thank you notes that are both quick and easy to make in bulk and are pretty, too. I love this simple design that I’ve come up with. I am crushing big time on pink these days, and love it mixed with the trendy look of gold.

So today I am playing with some scraps. And making some much-needed thank-you notes for a quick and easy tutorial on the Sizzix blog.

I have so many pretty papers left over from the Crop & Create: Delivered Kit- Blossoms & Breezes, and I’ve vowed to use those up, too. Love how the woodgrain looks with the soft pink and gold… and that printed vellum is amazing. Makes a fabulous liner for the new Envelope Movers & Shapers die by Tim Holtz. Another new favorite of mine from the winter release.

I am so excited to see Sizzix adding more stamps to their line-up of products. With ten different sentiment stamps to choose from in Stephanie Barnard’s adorable Thanks clear stamp set, I’ve now got plenty of ways to share my gratitude.
