Hello friends! I just wanted to pop in and wish you all a very Happy New Year! I also promised to share a set of thank you cards that I made for my daughter's Kindergarten teacher. I kept them very clean and simple, but I love the way they turned out. There are two different styles in three colors, Pure Poppy, Simply Chartreuse, and Hawaiian Shores. Both use the Mat Stack 1 Collection stamps and the Background Basics: Diamonds impression plate.
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (white)
Stamps: Papertrey Ink (Mat Stack 1 Collection)
Ink: Clearsnap (Cranberry, Moss Green), Papertrey Ink (Hawaiian Shores), Inkadinkadoo (Black)
Tools: Papertrey Ink (Background Basics: Diamonds impression plate), Martha Stewart (scoring board), We R Memory Keepers (Corner Chomper)
Accessories: Stampendous (clear embossing powder)
To make these, I dry embossed the diamonds at the bottom of each card front, then added two scored lines. I stamped the label and heat embossed with clear powder, then added the sentiment in black.
To package the cards, I repurposed a clear plastic box from one of my PTI stamp sets. I simply tied some Hawaiian Shores dotty ribbon around it and added a tag.
It's a little hard to see, but the tag is stamped with various holiday sentiments, as well as Versamark stamped snowflakes that are heat embossed with clear glitter embossing powder.
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (Hawaiian Shores, white)

That's all for tonight, but I hope you all have a safe and happy New Year's celebration! Thanks for stopping by, and I'll see you in 2011!
