Watercolor Thank You Cards Quick & Easy! - DSC#164

Hi Stampers,
I love making "quick and easy" little cards and projects. don't you?  For this week's DOstamper Thursday DSC#164 Home Sweet Home Challenge, I used both the Watercolor Thank You and Simply Wonderful Stamp Sets to make this cute little set of "Thank You Cards" which is just perfect for a hostess gift!

You can stamp the "Thank You" from the Watercolor Thank You Stamp on all four cards at the same time like a production line, it doesn't get any easier than that! Next I used my Stampin Markers, to color the flowers and leaves right on the rubber image of the Simply Wonderful Stamp Set (one of last years Saleabration stamp sets but you can use any tiny flower and leaf). Coloring the markers directly on the rubber stamp itself allowed me to use one color for the flower and another color for the leaves. enabling me to stamp those images all at the same time. Once again, all four cards were stamped all in a row, just re-inking and stamping from one card base to another "quick and easy".

 I then rounded the bottom corners of the cards with the Corner Rounder and used my Envelope Punch Board to make four white envelopes and envelope liners using liner paper to match the flower color choice.

The cards were made using Whisper White CS cut 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" and scored @ 4-1/4", and the envelope is for a standard 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" card and was made with the Envelope Punch Board.

The final touches were to bundle the four cards together with Raffia, and then attach a button and some bakers twine on top using a glue dot.  Done..., super  "quick and easy"

A gift anyone would love to receive!

Hope you enjoyed the card, God Bless!
