Emerald Envy Rose Thank You Card - visit

I always need Thank You cards, don’t you?  I am extremely fond of this Simple Rose design because it IS so simple and you can make a ton of them in a hurry!  You don’t even have to use the same color!

My favorite product from the 2016 Occasions Catalog that carried over into the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog is the Rose Wonder Bundle, which was the Rose Wonder Stamp Set and the coordinating Rose Garden Thinlits™ Dies bundled together.  Now you get them separately, but they’re wonderful together!

I’ve used the sentiments, like Thank You, and the frame in any number of designs, more than I’ve used the rose images.  I tend to adore using the Rose Garden Dies and cut out the rose image from any solid color.  A tip on adhering the rose: just glue the center and outer edges – this keeps the oozing down a bit.

The Thank You Card is also done in an Emerald Envy Split Complementary Plus Color Scheme.  Emerald Envy of the Green Color Group has Split Complements in Sweet Sugarplum of the Violet-Red/Red-Violet Color Group and Blushing Bride of the Red-Orange/Orange-Red Color Group.  This pattern from the Playful Palette Designer Series Paper Stack includes Peekaboo Peach, from the Orange Color Group.  That makes the color scheme Split Complementary Plus, since Orange is right beside Red-Orange/Orange-Red.

This combination is good for Thank You, Birthday, Sympathy, Friendship, Get Well, Baby or Bridal, as well as other Occasions, formal or informal.  It also applies to scrapbook pages with similar themes.
