Need to make a quick handmade thank you card?

I sure did today!  If you read yesterday, I talked about wanting to use up scraps of current patterned paper, because I know there is new paper coming out soon – and it isn't that I won't love the old paper, I am just like a 6 year old when it comes to things in general.  In other words, I am easily distracted by bright, shiny objects – in this case, new patterned paper.

What is sad in the paper crafting world?  Dusting off patterned paper.

And before I forget – do you see that patterned paper that I used as a background?  I will brag on myself here for a moment – this patterned paper is part of the iTeach Stamping Bundle of the Month this month.  And I made the cutest stinkin' card using these umbrellas for the free tutorial that you get when you take advantage of that bundle through my online store.  I can't wait for you all to see it and learn how to make it yourself!!!  OK, bragging over.

While it may not look like a scrap – indeed it is.  It is a piece that is 4″ x 5-1/4″ from the Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP and it is all that is left of that pattern.  Add a strip of Whisper White, punch it out with a butterfly punch – add a sentiment, a little Melon Mambo Striped Organdy Ribbon from the Occasions Catalog.

I used the Word Window Punch along with the Bitty Banners Framelits – zipped it on through my Big Shot – for my sentiment.  And that Thank You came from the Just Believe stamp set from Stampin' Up!

Then you notch out the bottom of the tag and away you go!  I hope that if you are in need of a quick handmade thank you card that this one brought you some inspiration.
