With that, we were beginning to wonder why we hadn’t taken it upon ourselves to create some of our very own stationery. And since we’re loving everything gold, what better project than a set of super simple, but fabulously gilded thank you card’s? These designs were a cinch to make, and all come together to create a lovely suite. Keep reading for the instructions to all three!

    I know this is old, but thanks! I’m in love with the glitter one. I’m going to tweak it a bit by using pink glitter and penning the word instead of using a stamp, but I never would’ve thought of using glitter like that.
