Triple Thanks

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

How was your Monday? Did you make it through in one piece? I think it may be too early to say I'm looking forward to the weekend, but... I'm looking forward to the weekend.

Today I'm sharing a simple thanks card I made for the Dynamic Duos Triple Threat Week Challenge. I had a hard time coming up with this card, but after hours some time perusing Pinterest, I found some inspiration that I was excited to work off of.

This weeks challenge was trickier than last week (which I didn't blog about as I was in the throes of stomach flu), but I love how this card turned out.

Every combination of Wild Wasabi (aka pea green), Tangerine Tango (aka orange), and Melon Mambo (aka hot pink) I could come up with looked like a tween girls chapstick collection. I just couldn't commit to it. So I turned to Pinterest and found these cards from Etsy:
Easy card idea

And I knew what I was going to make!

Using this free arrow cut file from Create Your Everyday Memories and this thanks file (that you can purchase in the Silhouette Store), I put together a versatile, trendy card.

I cut the thanks embellishment out of a card I made a mistake on (and just knew I was going to be able to recycle later) so it is a little thicker and provides a good level of dimension.

Since I wasn't sure how I wanted to use these cards, I decided to leave one of them blank in case I want to add a different sentiment to it later.

Since the inside was unfinished with three scraps of scrapbook paper glued there I added a piece of white card stock inside to finish it off.

Can't wait to use this card for a quick Summer note!
