Very Vanilla Newsprint Thank You
This is a pair of thank you cards I made using Basic black and Very Vanilla card stock and the Newsprint Designer Series Paper (DSP) as the background. These cards are 4-1/4" square cards. I like square cards but you have to add extra postage for mailing and have square envelopes on hand for them but if you do a 4-1/4 inch card, they fit in the standard invitation envelope (4-3/8 x 5-3/4) that we use for our standard 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" cards. This way you won't have buy special envelopes and extra postage if you are mailing it. The background on the smaller vanilla square is embossed using the Square Lattice embossing folder and adhered to a smaller Basic Black square. I then die cut the black tag using a die from the Sizzlits Lots of Tags set (set of 4) and stamped the Thank You from the Just Believe stamp set and punched it out with the Modern Label Punch. I added the Basic Pearls for the finishing touch. Quick and easy card. After I did the card on the left, I decided to change it up a little for the 2nd card and rounded the corners on DSP and the embossed square. I thought rounding the corners of those pieces complimented the rounded edges on the tags and added a little more interest in the card.
