Thank U

Hello.  I'm off today, so in between my to do list,  I'm trying to squeeze in a couple of cards today. I have 3 masculine Thank You cards to make, one down and 2 to go.

I thought I would take a little break and share my first card with you.

Very little stamping involved in this card.  I used Verve - You and I stamp set for the THANK and matching die (for the U). I embossed the Thank using white Hero Arts ep.

Papers are from Basic Grey - Mellow.  I have huge 12 x 12 container of BG from years past.  I couldn't believe all the beautiful papers I have stashed away and never think to use them.  

I used MFT Die-namics 15 for most layers and MFT fish tale stax die.  

I added some twine and a couple of bella dark chocolate dots to finish this off.

Thanks for stopping by today. Enjoy your day.

Wow! These are fabulous guy papers and a totally fabulous masculine thank you! Love how you embossed the "thank" on the "u". Great design with the off-kilter panels. I need to squeeze a card in today somehow. Oh, and those papers that don't get used -- I could almost cry when I look at all my unused 12 x 12's just sitting there getting old. Whatever was I thinking?

Hi Pauline,

Love the card - those papers are to die for.

Much love,

Love the masculine card. You have demonstrated that you don't have to do a lot of stamping to produce a lovely card. Love the paper and colour schemes you used. Love the "U" die with Thanks stamped on it. Again you always finish it off with embellishments that adds that extra touch!

This is great! The mix of shapes makes it just as masculine as the great papers. Awesome work!
