This “quick & easy” thank you card uses Happy Forest Friends Designer Paper, but any designer paper you like would do. Plus, a coordinating piece of designer paper can decorate the envelope flap. Just glue a 5 3/4″ X 2 1/4″ piece to Stampin’ Up’s Medium Envelope flap, and trim the excess with Paper Snips (scissors), using the flap as a template.

Happy Forest Thanks


After deciding on trees from the Happy Forest Friends Designer Paper, I cut it to 4″ X 5 1/4″, and glued it to a Mossy Meadow card base, 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″, folded at 4 1/4″. 

Next, I stamped six “frames” from the Alphabest Stamp Set in Calypso Coral Ink on Basic White Cardstock. Then, I stamped the letters, “t-h-a-n-k-s,” inside the frames. You can see the entire stamp set in my Product List below.


After punching out the letters with the Best Label Punch, I attached each letter on Mini Dimensionals, and my “quick & easy” card was complete.


I was inspired by the Fusion challenge.
