Quick Thank You Card

Hello and happy Monday!  It was rough getting back into the swing of things after the Thanksgiving break - but we have made it through the day - YAY!

I had just a little time to play and was inspired by the challenge over at Shopping Our Stash to make a quick Thank You card - so here's my take on the challenge.

This card took only 5 minutes to make!  I used a plaid note card (from Hobby Lobby) but if you don't have those, you can just use any piece of designer paper or card stock cut to 8.5" by 4.25" and fold it in half.  I cut the outline thanks die (from Simon Says Stamp) right from the front of the card and added a piece of white card stock behind the top half of the card.  I cut the thanks from black and added it inside the opening, then took the whole card over and cut a scalloped edge (die from MFT) from the front.  I took the left over plaid and cut about 1/2 in off the bottom, then added it to the inside bottom of the card.  The little strip that was left, was used on the envelope to make it match the card.  In this picture below you can see I stamped sentiments from Simon Says Stamp's "Thoughtful Messages" stamp set and I was finished!

A quick and easy thank you card!  I plan to make quite a few of these for gift packs of cards for Christmas.  Everyone always needs thank you cards!  

Here's one last picture where you can see the top flap closed all the way.

I will enter this in:
