10 minute Thank You card

nope, I’m not kidding, you can make this card in 10 minutes using my Vintage Christmas Label digital stamp set. When I designed the Vintage Christmas labels set I wanted to a. Make a set that was quick to use and could be cut out with your nestie die cuts in a snap and b. Make a set you could use all year-long! I need a lot of Thank you cards after the holidays so I thought I’d show you how to make a chic, vintage, elegant one in 10 minutes flat:

To begin I printed the labels from the Vintage Christmas label kit on Staples cream cardstock (I love this for ink jet printing and it is heavyweight and affordable $15 for 250 sheets) to change the color I went into the adjust menu in Paint Shop Pro, then clicked hue/saturation then chose hue/saturation/lightness and played with the sliders until I got the color I wanted. There are many different ways to re-color, that works best for me:) I used the font Rosewood to type the “thank” on the bingo card and the “U” that I simply punched out. Then it was just a matter of cutting and gluing!

I used some crinkled seam binding and stick pins for a little vintage flair and that was it, easy peasy!

Here is a look at the Vintage Christmas Labels set I used in the project:
