Thank You Note Cards for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #44

Stampin Up True Gentleman thank you card idea- Jeanie Stark StampinUp


Happy Thursday!  I am excited to share this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge.  Do you want to know why? Of course you do!  It’s because I designed this week’s challenge board and there’s a hidden message in the elements! Can you find it?  My previous challenge boards have been ABC boards but this time I thought I would change it up. Here’s this week’s challenge. I hope you will pick 3 and play!


When I designed this challenge board I had no idea what I would create. I didn’t realize this was going to be the fastest and easiest challenge to do (In My Humble Opinion)! I created tic tac toe every way by using all 9 elements on my card!

Its hard to imagine this clean & simple card used all 9 elements! Did you know Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Color Revamp has navy in the neutral color family? This card came together so fast I decided to make another and another and another and ending up making a little gift set.

My husband often asks me to make him thank you cards and this set makes a great gift for the men in your life.

I used the Very Vanilla Note Cards & Envelopes and the True Gentleman Designer Series Paper.  The DSP measures 2 7/8 x 4 3/8 and is layered on a piece of 3 x 4 1/2 cardstock. The layered panel and the sentiment layer are popped up with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Here’s a look at the other 3 cards.

I  made the note card holder from a sheet of 12 x 12 DSP. There’s no cutting or adhesive needed!  Just score, fold, and tuck!

Diane Barnes posted a great tutorial how to make these.  You can download her instructions HERE. I adapted mine to hold more cards.  I followed her instructions except I scored it 2, 5 3/4, 6 1/4 and 10 on one side then turned and scored the other side at 2 1/2 and 8 1/4. It holds all 4 note cards and envelopes.

I love the True Gentleman Suite! I usually struggle with masculine cards but the Tailored Tag Punch and True Gentleman Designer Series Paper make it easy. The Navy Corduroy Ribbon is retiring but the punch will carry over. (*There is a beautiful new stamp set to go with it for both men and women in the new catty!)

Now that you see how easy it is to create using this week’s Tic Tac Toe Challenge Board, I hope you will create something to share.  You could be the next guest designer! Make sure you visit the Tic Tac Toe Challenge to see what the other designers created this week!

Have a wonderful day!

Many Thanks

I have been the recipient of much love and support lately which means I have a lot of thank you notes to write!  When I make thank you cards I usually make several.  It’s easier sometimes to do “assembly line” and I especially like to do that with thank you cards.

Here’s some thank you cards I shared previously that I am thankful I made extras to have on hand.
