Sweet & Simple Thank You with Path of Petals Bundle

I needed to send out a handful of thank you cards before I left for the Thanksgiving holidays. The most important part of a handmade thank you card (brace yourself for this controversial opinion) is the handwritten note inside the card. As such, I wanted a n elegant (but simple) front for my cards. I chose to create my cards with coordinating products – the Path of Petals bundle and the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper. Here’s the simple card I made:

I used some retired Crumb Cake Note Cards & Envelopes to quickly assemble my cards. The card would be just as lovely as a normal-sized card or with either the Whisper White or Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes.

Tips, Tricks and Reminders

  • Path of Petals. My card features products for the Pressed Petals Suite in Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Annual Catalog – the Path of Petals Bundle (which includes the Path of Petals Photopolymer stamp set and Petal Labels Dies) and the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper. While the images and sentiments in the Path of Petals stamp set are very stylized to the suite, I only stamped the simple “THANK YOU” on the cropped oval on the front of this card. The dies work beautifully with the stamp set or can be coordinated with other sets. Here’s a look at the Path of Petals Bundle: Path of Petals Bundle, Stampin' Up! 151131And here are some samples from Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Annual Catalog that beautifully pull together elements from this suite: Path of Petals Bundle, Stampin' Up!, Catalog SamplesTo see all of the products in the Pressed Petals Suite of Products, click on the image below:Pressed Petals Suite, 101006, Stampin' Up! 2019 Annual Catalog
  • Delicate Dies. The Petal Labels Dies do all the work for me on this card – such intricate, oval dies. There are three oval dies in this set of dies that coordinate with the stamp set and other elements of the suite – one is a small oval, one leaves an intricate design on the outside of a small oval and one leaves an intricate design on the inside of a large oval. I cropped the first die with Crumb Cake and popped it up on the second die that was cropped with Merry Merlot:Path of Petals Bundle, Stampin' Up!, Brian KingThat made it easy for me to quickly cut out the handful of thank you cards I needed.Path of Petals Bundle, Stampin' Up!, Brian King
