More CAS Thank You Notes

Another batch of CAS thank you notes to be included with the eBay parcels I'll be sending off.

I made a set of 3 chrysanthemum thanks cards, they're exactly the same but I used a different ink colour for each card. I love the large solid chrysanthemum and I'm crazy about that 'thanks' stamp - made me very happy to stamp these quick and simple one layer cards!

Then it struck me that so far all my thank you notes were flowery and girly - what a surprise! So I made a few masculine designs too just in case I get a few male winning bidders.

Very simple stamping on the grass card using a Hero Arts large background stamp. For the circle thank you, I stamped the solid circle and sentiment on a piece of smooth CS and then cut it out with a circle Nestie die because I thought the intricate image might not stamp cleanly onto the textured card.

For the last card I chose a bold colour combo and used the fab Spellbinders Fleur-de-lis dies as I wanted to see what it looked like if you cut and embossed both shapes - I likey! I've popped up the frame. No room on the front for a sentiment so I stamped a 'thanks so much' inside.
