Elegant thank you cards

Recently I realized I was running out of thank you cards in my stash so I created these quick and easy cards today to restock.  Nothing too elaborate, but I love the finished project. 

I began by selecting some patterned paper from a 4x6 DCWV mat stack that I already had in my stash.  I love using these stacks for cards!  I made the card bases from solid black card stock and lined the insides with white cardstock.

I rounded the corners for a more finished look

Next I cut some flowers for quilling.  For this I used a Spellbinders die. They are easy to line up on the small 4x6 papers but you could do something similar with other cutting systems

Shapes were cut using the Cricut for the phrase "thank you". Then stamped with CTMH stamps and ink 

Assembled with foam tape

Flowers are thn quilled-  I like to use hot glue on my quilled flowers

Then just assemble the cards. And add some bling
