A Lil' Thanks ...

Getting ready for stamp class this week. Here's one of the featured projects, a 4x4 inch "Thank You" notecard.

I used the new "A Beautiful Thing" stamp set and a piece of Bali Breeze double-sided designer paper. Cardstock colors are Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie. The greeting is from the "Much Appreciated" stamp set - stamped in Whisper White craft ink.

The Flowers: The flower was stamped in Pumpkin Pie ink on Pumpkin Pie cardstock and then punched out with the 5-petal punch. I inserted a small white fabric flower (from Stampin' Up!'s "Pretties" kit) colored with some Pumpkin Pie pastel chalk and a marker for the flower center.

The Ribbon: To decorate the ribbon, I stamped the tiny flower images (4 in a row on one stamp) from "A Beautiful Thing" in Pumpkin Pie ink on to a piece of white grosgrain ribbon. This is a great way to make sure your ribbon ties into your project!

These notecards go together quickly ... perfect when you're short on time.
