A strawberry thank you card with free digital strawberry stamp

French neighbors and friends tend to be a generous lot. You invite folks to dinner and they all come bearing gifts – wine, flowers, chocolates – or if you're ill, they might show up on your doorstep with flowers or a plant. Which means a supply of ready made thank you cards like this one, is nice to have on hand. I make the fronts and leave the insides blank so I can personalize them later.

This card uses a free Opal Manor strawberries digital stamp as its focal image. The Berry Sweet digital paper is from Tactile Studio.

The sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly Barbara Anne Williams Sweet Summer Sentiments digital sentiment sheet. I have the whole collection of these, they're so versatile (here's another one on this cute little bunny card).

Supply List
Paper – cardstock, Tactile Studio Berry Sweet digital paper pack
Digital stamp – free Opal Manor Strawberries
Color – Caran d'Ache Luminance 6901 pencils
Die – Die-namics circle stax and square stax

I've used the sketch from #90 Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 as the basis for my design:

I'm linking up with: A Beautiful Mess #3 – Anything Goes, Crafting with Friends #21 – Anything Goes, Just Add Ink #313 – Add something with a 'B' (in my case it's berries), and Jo's Scrap Shack #140 – Anything Goes.


  1. That is such a good idea Shani. I need to make a pack of them - and sympathy cards too! When you need them, you need them NOW, not when you have time and the mojo! Yours is clean, simple and fast if you do a production line... on my way to the RubberRoom!

  2. Such a cute card, love the matching paper. Thanks for joining us at SSW2. Hugs, Heide SSW2-DT
