Two SU! Thank You Cards

Here are some cards I have made over the past month or so, I have already uploaded them to my Trimcraft Gallery but I thought I would post them over here too, seeing as I have started a fresh new blog!! :) Give more people a chance to comment, if they so wish!

I challenged myself to make this card without the use of patterned paper, as I seem to use it in EVERY card I make. This wasn't as hard as I first thought, infact, I am quite happy with the results. Very minimalist, which is sort of what I always try to go for. I think it takes a great amount of skill (and time) to produce a busy card which works well, and I'm afraid to say, I neither have patience, skill or time to do that!

I think I may be madly in love with the stamp set and the coordinating punch, something about the size of these tags and the ways in which you have to attatch them to your projects really makes them stand out. They are also so versatile, they work well on both small and larger projects, depending on how you want to use them. Just brilliant! :)
