A One-Layer Thank You

I am always running out of thank you notes--especially nice flat and easily mailed one-layer ones. How 'bout you? Today's card is a welcome addition to my perpetuallly depleted collection.


As soon as I saw Kanani's awesome sketch for this month's DeNami Design Challenge, I knew I could adapt it to a single layer design to suit my needs!


Doesn't this look like a fun sketch? There are all sorts of possibilities for it! Be sure to swing by the DeNami Design blog to check out what the rest of the design team came up with for this sketch and to get all the details of the August DeNami challenge!

Thanks for checking in!
Emily

Stamps: Modern Borders Set (cling), Brushed Thank You by DeNami Design

What a great card Emily! I need to try more one layer cards for mailing. It adds up at the post office after a while sending all those lumpy cards! :D
Hope you are having a great summer. August flies by soooo fast!

Good to see a card from you. I'm betting you're having a great summer with the kiddos.

Now this is a great idea - my mind always goes to paper layers with sketches, and obviously it doesn't have to :) Hope you're having a great time!!

Melissa Shea said...

I'm always running out too. I need more practical thank you cards (instead of my gussied up cards that don't mail very well!). Great idea!

Fabulous way to do a border stamp! Wow, there are so many possibilities now that you've gotten my mind turning, and so many border stamps to do it with. :)
