Sometimes you just need a super quick, but super cute card, right?  Well here it is.  Although I have it dressed up in Fall colors, This design would work with any color combination and any image.  So here are a few quick tips to not only save you time, but help you get those Thank You’s in the mail today.  I know I am sending one to all those who ordered this month!

Be sure to check back tomorrow to see a video on how I made this custom sized envelope.  Read the creative tips below to see why I chose a custom sized card.

Creative Tips –

    • Stamp your leaves beginning with the Crushed Curry in the center.  Then stamp  the other two.
    • I chose a custom size because the leaves needed the full 5.25″ width and there was too much white at the top and bottom.  With the ease of making custom envelopes with the Envelope Punch Board, I thought, why not make a custom sized card?!
    • The Whisper White measures 5.25” x 3”.
    • The Crumb Cake matte measures 5 7/16” x 3 3/16”
    • The Cherry Cobbler measures 6” x 3.75” folded, 6″ x 7.5″ unfoldedGently Falling 004 004
    • Stamp your greeting in Early Espresso over the stamped images.
    • Wrap Linen Thread in a criss cross pattern on the front of the Whisper White and secure with adhesive.  Attach to the Crumb cake.Gently Falling 004 007
    • Add Pearl Basic Jewels to the front of your card.
    • Pop up the stamped piece on Stamping Dimensionals for a little character to the card.
