Springtime Gift Card

Hi! Thanks for visiting from Card a Day Blog! Below is a card I made for a spring present of gardening supplies! I’m sure my friend will follow the sentiment on the card front!
It is a simple card that you could do using diecuts, flowers, ribbon, buttons and a tag with a stamped or printed sentiment. I had to do this card on short notice, so for me, print and cut on my Silhouette was the easiest way to have a co-ordinated look! (I never did think I would like print and cutting, but boy oh boy, does it make my life easy now!)
The card base was 5” x 7” basic white card that I buy packs of 50 cards/envelopes.
I used a floral arch I had in Silhouette Studio, coloring the flowers and leaves digitally. I created a blank mat for under the floral arch, and a sentiment tag for the card front.  Here is what my creation looked like before I print and cut it.
The one thing I did do was cut out extra mats for the floral arch, and glued them together to make a faux chipboard element.  It works, but next time I think I will do a minimum of 6 layers, instead of the three I did, to make it more substantial!
Below is a picture of how I put it together on the card... basically placed a ribbon 1/3 of the way from the top of the card, and adhered the floral arch and tag with dimensional tape.

I sure hope this inspires you to make a similar card too!
