Thank you cards

 I made these cards for my nephew's fiancee who is having a bridal shower this weekend!!  Their colours are teal and black so I went looking for some paper that would be appropriate.  I found these - backgrounds that were already cut from some beautiful paper I bought in London in 2010!!  Perfect!!  I decided to pair them with white card fronts to keep the colour scheme simple. I created banners by punching "Thanks" into strips of white cardstock, flagging the ends with my chevron punch (SU) and backing the letters with a strip of black paper which I allowed to extend beyond the flagged edge.  I trimmed the black ends by hand and added faux stitching to the other end using a fine tip Sharpie marker.    As you can see I positioned the greetings in several different places and changed up the orientation of some of the cards as well.  Love how well these turned out!
A bride can never have too many thank you cards and these will be appropriate for any reason if they are not used for the shower or wedding.

Made a whole stack of them and they are packaged ready to go!!
