Pear A La Neutrals – Thank You Card

Stampin Up Fresh Fruit Thank You Card Ideas - Mary Fish Stampinup

A monochromatic thank you card is simple yet so striking.  This mix of neutral colors and images from the Stampin’ Up! Fresh Fruit photopolymer stamp set is an excellent example.

LOVE IT!  Fresh Fruit stamp set made the list of My Favorite Things from the annual catalog.


  • The Stampin’ Up! Crumb Cake Note Cards & Envelopes get this card off to a quick start!
  • Very Vanilla card stock (2 3/8″ x 3 1/2″) and Soft Suede card stock (2 1/2″ x 3 5/8″) provide depth to the monochromatic color palette.

  • Sponge Daubers make “antiquing” the pear a breeze. Simply dab your dauber on the Sahara Sand ink pad and swirl around the edges of the pear and card stock.
  • Linen Thread added with a Mini Glue Dot finishes the image.
  • Font-tastic!  The sentiment is also from the Fresh Fruit stamp set.
