A "Thank You" and "Just Because" Cards For You Today

HAPPY HALLOWEEN from all of us bakers here at Pink Paper Bakery!  We appreciate all of the time you spend checking out our blog and we love all the comments and Card Cafe entries.  Keep them coming stamping friends!

Now onto the regularly scheduled blog post...

When creating a "Thank You" card for a bridal shower this weekend, I fell in love with this layout.  It was simple and elegant while adding a "WOW" factor with the use of an embossing folder on the background layer.  I found this layout on Stampin' Connection, a Stampin' Up! demonstrator only site similar to Facebook.  Demonstrators share card and project ideas, business tips and even a story or two.  I would love to give credit to the demonstrator who used this layout for a wedding card but it's been so long ago that I don't remember.  Sorry.  I switched it up to make it into the "Thank You" card for the bridal shower/workshop that I am doing this weekend.
Card #1: A Wedding Thank You card using Easy Events stamp set
Then, I decided to change the look of the card by using a different stamp set completely, using a different embossing folder for the background layer and using a framelit die instead of a punch.  My favorite part is the woodgrain embossing folder behind the birdbath image.  I began making this card for a good friend of mine but the more I look at it I think that it may just be a sweet note for my husband one day this week.  I love the message and I love how it turned out!
