Since I had a number of cards to make I wanted a design that was easy to reproduce and one that I could use for not only "Thank You Cards" but for other occasions too such as "Sympathy", "Thinking of You", "Just a Note", or an "Anniversary" or Wedding card". I know I won't get bored with the design I came up with and these cards go together so quickly they'd be great for a swap or being made in an assembly line fashion.
When thinking of what design I would make I remembered seeing a lot of cards and scrapbook pages that have incorporated the Basic Black and Very Vanilla DSP "Newsprint" (117166 page 174 of IB&C). This DSP is the perfect medium for stamping on. And, by matching the ink, mounting and embellishment cardstocks, and ribbon, it makes for a very pretty and easy card. I chose Very Vanilla cardstock for my card base and the coloured cardstock and matching satin ribbons I chose were: Cherry Cobbler, Melon Mambo, Elegant Eggplant, Tempting Turquoise and Old Olive.
Here are some pictures of my samples. Hope you enjoy them. Let me know.
