Three Minute thank you post cards

In the course of designing some thank you cards for my son to use, I came up with a very quick idea which I thought would be gorgeous for understated baby thank you cards. I'm using Reason to Smile - which, is only available for the month of August, so if you'd like to get your hands on this wonderfully versatile set do contact me soon! So, for Three Minute Thursday today, here they are:

Here's the recipe for this:

• Cut a piece of A4 Naturals Ivory card stock into four equal pieces
• Mask the bottom off each one and stamp the 'dot' from Reason to smile randomly over the top
• Add this sentiment from Thank You Kindly
• Finish with a scored line.

How simple is that?! It definitely took longer to type this than to make them but I think they're really effective. Heck, if you have a spare pico second, you could even round a corner! These would be a nice addition to a gift for someone who has just had a baby - thank you cards are always so useful. You could tie them up with a piece of seam binding or taffeta ribbon with a pretty tag.

Here's what you'll need to make this set.
Stamps: Reason to Smile (available August only), Thank You Kindly
Ink: Basic Black, Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Certainly Celery
Card stock: Naturals Ivory
Other: Simply Scored, stamp-a-majig

I mentioned to my daughter how much I've enjoyed 'going dotty' with this lovely stamp set. "Hmm," she said. "No change there then!" How rude!
