Clean & Simple Thank You

  My husband commissioned (my fancy way of saying I forced him to let me make a card for him) this card to send to his former boss who has moved onto a new position in the company.  I thought this would be harder than it was as his former boss is about our age, a guy, single and probably way cooler than we are and let's face many single dudes even care about cards?  But I wanted to do a good job and not embarrass my husband!  =)

 Basic Gray is a nice color to use on masculine cards and I paired it with Very Vanilla.  The large top layer of Very Vanilla was run through the Big Shot with the new Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder (yes I have used this a lot lately! Hope you're not too sick if it yet!).

  I wrapped a bit of Basic Gray taffeta ribbon (retired- Booooo!!) around the embossed panel and then topped it with the Thank You sentiment from Thank You Kindly.  I used the ticket corner punch to jazz up that panel.

  There you go.... ***Edited to add: I totally forgot to say that I got the inspiration for this card at Pals Paper Arts.  They are having a Masculine KISS (Keep It Simple, Sweetie) Challenge this week.  This card fits the bill I think!
