A Simple Thanks

So I find myself making more themed cards then anything when I make them, and thought "I need some more basic, sympathy, just because and thank you" types of cards, so I thought I'd get to it and show a simple and QUICK card that I put together to have on hand!

Please excuse the lighting I'm having issues lately!

This is a simple card using a pre-made card base picked up at Hobby Lobby 5 x 6.5 inches

The Patterned paper is from a fall matstack from DCWV (these fit almost perfectly on top of the pre-made card and only minimal trimming is needed)

The punch is a Fiskers picked up at my local JoAnn Fabrics this week ... and on clearance! I think I snagged this one up for 2.97! I kept the scrap of the punch and used it for the bottom of the card to make it a little more finished!

The pearls are adhesive backed and from the dollar section also at JoAnn Fabrics

The ribbon is a simple satin like ribbon purchased at Michaels. (I keep a lot of this kind of ribbon on hand as it's not too fancy and works well when you don't know what to put with certain patterned paper)

Finally the sentiment is from My Pink Stamper from the Fabulous Phrases set - LOVE that set!

I hope you like my VERY BASIC card! Per usual, I left the inside of the card blank so that anything can be written or stamped in when needed!

Thanks for stopping by & Happy Crafting!



  1. Such a pretty card! Love it!


  2. This is great. I sometimes find that adding something small or simple to pretty paper can make a fantastic card! Good job!

  3. This is so pretty! I love keeping cards like this on hand too! It is so easy when you are pressed for time!

  4. Meg, this is beautiful. I also love the idea of pre making cards and leaving them blank!
