Simply Thanks

I’ve been blessed lately with having to send out some thank you cards… I thought I would share a quick and simple one I made with you.
It is composed of four things…
  1. 6 inch square white card stock card.
  2. 5/8th inch olive green satin ribbon.
  3. K&Company Die Cut Sticker Alphabets
  4. K&Company dimensional stickers (Irises!)

I wanted the “thanks” offset, so I started right to left, carefully positioning the letters so they were evenly spaced.  If I wanted to ensure they were evenly spaced across the bottom of the card, I would have put them on a separate piece of cardstock “ribbon” and then center the ribbon after adhering the letters, then trim the edges to the card.
Next, it was a simple tape runner the satin ribbon down, and stick the flowers over the ribbon.
I hate to say it, but I am in love with that colour of ribbon…. I can see myself using it often!
The picture below makes the card stock look tinted on the edges (my camera)... but that would be a great idea, to sponge on a coordinating color along the edges, or in the center of the card to highlight the flowers!

Make sure to visit the Card a Day Blog tomorrow for a card inspiration from Darla!
