Hi there! Suzanna here to share with you a thank you card today. I don’t know about you but I am always looking for a card to say thanks! This design could easily be used for any sentiment.

This was a very simple card to create with some Core’dinations cardstock from my left overs, a David Tutera card base from Step 1, a die, an embossing folder and some twine!
Create a visually pleasing look with triangles, wrap it up with twine to really capture your interest and voila! You’re finished!
I used “thank you” as my sentiment but really, as generic as triangles are, anything could go here!
I’m trying to create more cards to keep on hand for the occasions that pop up! One of the cards that I’m always needing are the ones for the men in my life. I find that using Tim Holtz Kraft Core cardstock always gives a simple design a more masculine look.
- Tim Holtz Kraft Core - No7, No11, No15, No18
- Sand It Gadget
- Dust Buddy
- Big Shot
- Lifestyle Crafts embossing folder
- Simon Says Stamp die
- Winnie & Walter stamp
I’ve used the same embossing folder for each panel but some are embossed and some are debossed!
My other top cardmaking tip is to use a general sentiment such as ‘for you’ so the card can be used for a variety of occasions such as birthdays, Father’s Day, thank you etc.
Celebrate this Labor Day with American pride! Create this beautiful USA bunting and patriotic decor just in time for the holiday!

The most difficult part of this project is making the rosettes. Start by searching rosette tutorials on Pinterest, you will find a ton! Make a few of these out of core’dinating cardstock. Adhere to banners, adding trim and other embellishments. Don’t forget to cut out the USA title from some Glitter Silk Cardstock.
Next up, make the stars by doing some simple scoring. Scor from the back, fold and sand. The are super simple to make and we will need a few. Some for the frame itself and some for the buckets.
Add bits and pieces of different embellishments and you have a great piece of home decor.

Back to school… A bitter sweet time of the year where we return to schedules and learning, leaving behind the laid back lazy days of summer. Typically we think of primary colors red, yellow and blue when we think of back to school thanks to pencils, school buses and composition note books. I didn’t want that for this layout so I’m breaking out of the norm and jazzing it up a bit!
Ribbon – May Arts
Washi/clip – Freckled Fawn
Embossing Folders – Darice, Teresa Collins
Wood Veneer – Studio Calico
Punch – EK Success
Project Life Card – Becky Higgins
I still have three of the primary colors in there but the pink background really gives the over all feel of the layout a more girly theme. One of the traditions in our house on the first day of school is a “back to school” sheet cake that they have to pose with before digging in for snack. Not sure how I’m going to do that with a middle schooler and one in elementary school!
Fussy cut around your embossed images for something with a bit more dimension, it’s easy to do! Kraft Core leaves a wonderful brown core that really pops the images.
