{simple} thank you

I like to have cards on hand for when I need them in a pinch.  With teaching this past year I found I needed quite a few thank you cards.  This was one of my quick and easy cards I mass produced to have a supply ready for when I needed them.  Even though there were so simple I think they look pretty cute! 


All you need to recreate this for yourself are some card bases {I use 8.5x11 cardstock cut in half, then fold each section in half...getting 2 cards from 1 piece of cardstock}, patterned paper, square punch or paper trimmer, stamp, marker, and rhinestones if you so choose!

The card is pretty self explanatory but here are the steps I used...

I started by selecting a group of paper that coordinated with each other.  I knew I wanted to use a square punch, so I visually divided the card into 6 sections.  I then punched 5 squares and adhered them to the card front.  In my 6th empty space, I used my marker to draw a faux stitched line in the shape of a square.  Then I stamped my sentiment inside this square.  I added a rhinestone in the center of the "o" for some extra pizazz! 

I love using Stampin' Up stampin' write markers.  They have a brush tip on end and a fine tip on the other.  I used the brush tip to ink up my stamp and used the fine tip for the faux stitching!  Gotta love a product that preforms multiple tasks!  ;)
