Thankful for You

This weekend went by very fast {sigh}. I did get a few hours to create some cards this weekend. Most are using new Papertrey items just released last month (plus, mixed in with other releases). This card is very simple. I created the background on the green cardstock to mimic designer paper. Since I have started doing this, I have eliminated purchasing designer paper for the most part. I may indulge here or there on some must-haves.

Did you get a chance to see the March issue of CARDS magazine? There are some great cards in there by fabulous card designers to inspire you with bright, spring cards.

Have a great Monday!

  1. Trim aqua mist cardstock to an A2 card.
  2. Trim kiwi kiss cardstock into a square and stamp background.
  3. Trim melon berry cardstock and border punch the edge.
  4. Adhere scallop edge melon berry cardstock to kiwi kiss cardstock.
  5. Tie white ribbon around focal point into a bow.
  6. Adhere to card base with foam adhesive.
  7. Stamp sentiment on card base.
