Those we love are always there for us. When times like these happen, people shine through and help each other out. No matter what, we always know who we can count on. So who can you count on today? You can say thank you every day, but just once you may have to say seriously thank you. This card was created with the Ornate Garden bundle. It’s still available through the end of this month.

You can create a beautiful magnolia image on a card super fast. I received a similar card last month from a member of my Demonstrator team. My jaw dropped as it was SO simple yet so elegant and perfect just as it was. I had to make some for myself as birthday thank you notes and I sent them out.
I chose a light color so I could write on the inside. Any light color works (the card I received from my downline was Balmy Blue) OR choose a darker color and use a Whisper White or Very Vanilla cardstock piece to write on and adhere inside (4″ x 5-1/4″). Wouldn’t the Seasonal Wreath 3D embossing folder look great as a holiday note card or thank you? (pg. 199 of our annual catalog or see it HERE). If you make groups of these, they are wonderful gifts if you insert them into our Acetate Card Boxes (noted below).
Supplies: Stamp set: Good Morning Magnolia (149298) Ink: Soft Sea Form Classic Stampin’ Pad (147102) Paper: Soft Sea Foam Cardstock (149688) Miscellaneous: Magnolia 3D Embossing Folder (149579), 3D Embossing Folder Plate (149658), Whisper White Medium Envelopes (107301), Acetate Card Boxes [not shown] (144628), Bone Folder (102300), Die-cutting machine

Using Soft Sea Foam ink, stamp corner of the front of Whisper White Medium Envelope.
For gift giving: make sets and insert into Acetate Card Boxes (each holds up to 5 sets of cards with envelopes). See them HERE. Note that the wording is incorrect on that one item; the box holds USA standard A2 cards and envelopes. It measures 4-7/16″ x 5-13/16″ x 5/8″.
Remember, you do not have to invent the wheel to be creative, just copy this project! Did you make it with your own hands? Then you have created!
This someone special thank you can be used through the holidays. The season of thanks is coming and that means letting all our loved ones know how much they mean to us. You can thank them with this special card. The sentiment can really be used all year round but Thanksgiving tends to bring us closer.
