A Rainbow of Thanks!

Situation: I needed another thank you card. (I'm needing a lot of these lately)
Dillema: Which stamp set to use.
Solution: Grab a new Thank You background stamp that hasn't seen ink yet!
Result: A Rainbow of Thanks!!

This colorful set was so much fun to create! I just love this new Gratuitous Graffiti background stamp - it really stands alone, as you can see.

On this Old Olive one, you can see how I made the envelopes, too. I used one of my favorite techniques - faux tearing. For a tutorial on this technique, click here.

And what's better than a set of really beautiful cards? A set of really beautiful cards in a really beautiful matching box!

I hope you liked it!
