A Big Batch of Thanks

I needed to make a bunch of thank you cards, so naturally I looked to Pinterest for inspiration. These are a CASE of Angie Juda's thank you cards, that just really jumped out at me, because they use the lovely new In Colors. I just LOOOOVE the new colors! After struggling with a certain In Color from last year that shall remain nameless - Summer Starfruit *cough* - it was like a breath of fresh air when I saw the new colors this year. I nearly swooned!
From Millan.Net

Anyhooo, I wanted to fancy the cards up a bit, so I looked for contrasting colors to give them a little pop. And the awesome new patterns in the Designer Series Paper Stacks added some extra visual interest, too!

Here are the In Colors, with their contrasting color:
  •    Pistachio Pudding, Wild Wasabi
  •    Coastal Cabana, Bermuda Bay
  •    Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral
  •    Baked Brown Sugar, Soft Suede
  •    Strawberry Slush, Melon Mambo
And, because I really liked the black, white and Bermuda Bay combo from the other day, I made another!
