10 min Thank You Cards

When I post little things off to people I'd often like to include a simple Thank you or Thinking of You card - but for the most part all I have are elaborate birthday cards made with friends or family in mind.  I just don't make that many simple cards suitable for a Thankyou.  So my challenge today was to make some clean and simple and FAST cards (a real challenge for me!) that I could use as needed.

Well these quick 10 min cards are totally perfect, not only as a thankyou but also for using up odds and ends of scrapbook papers and flowers and the odd left over embellishment!

Now as you can see these are quite simple and follow a similar basic design.  To recreate one of these for yourself you would only need 5 elements!  The really great part is that because they are so simple, as long as there is a common colour through the patterned paper, focus piece and base card these will look great!

Here are a few close up photos so you can see the details on each card.

This last card isn't a favourite, as the flower is too small and the embellishment is the wrong shape - but I've included it anyway so you can see the difference it makes just having a slightly larger focal piece.

Those larger flowers really make the card look so much more WOW!

So I now have some cute thank you cards and each one took under 10 minutes to make, no excuse for not using them now :)
