I love fancy fold cards but I also love simplicity. So this is a card I created for one of my OnStage swaps using the Just Because Host stamp set in the Occasions Catalog. It’s a double front fold card that’s really quite simple to create.
You will notice that the stamps in this set actually come with the sentiments attached. To give me more flexibility since I really wanted this to be a thank you card I just cut the rubber stamp making it 2 separate stamps. Then I used the thank you stamp that comes in the set. I can always but the stamp back together on a clear block…so don’t fear…give it a try! And to make it really easy since I was making 20 of these cards I used the Stamparatus to making positioning the stamps easy.
Get Them Before They’re Gone! All the 2018-2019 Annual Catalog and Occasions Catalog Host stamp sets will retire as of June 4! You need to earn these stamp sets with Stampin’ Rewards. There are two way to earn them.

Now let me show you the inside of the card and why this is called a double front card.
When you open the card you find the sentiment on what appears to be another card but smaller. Love this cute sentiment. It’s from the Thankful Thoughts Stamp Sets that’s fa collection of wonderful sentiments.
And once you open the second front you have a place to write your own thoughts to the person you are thanking. Of course if you aren’t one to write long lengthy thoughts you could always stamps some surprise 😉
