Super Fast Paper Plane Thank You Card

 Once I had the idea for this card it was a snap to make. No coloring was needed, just some pouncing with a dauber to apply some Versa Magic turquoise ink.  I only inked and stamped the first four words of the sentiment.
 The folded paper airplane stamp, dotted curved line, and the sentiment are from a Lawn Fawn set that I purchased at HM Ben Franklin Crafts.  The thank you stamp came from a Hero Arts set (not shown). The folded crane stamp is from a Mama Elephant set that has a matching die set.  If you do not have the sets you could fold a tiny origami crane from white paper and adhere it to the card.
I hand cut the paper plane image and fastened it and the die cut crane to the card with sticky foam squares. Voila!  In mere minutes the cards (actually four of them) were done.  The most challenging part of this thank you card was not adding extra colors or embellishments.  It's a K.I.S.S. (keep it simple sweetheart) card and I am proud of my restraint.  LOL!
