Thank You :: FTL 15

Clean & Simple Stamping is featuring a new sketch on their blog, so I decided to use it for today's card. It is a very simple design. I used a larger card base than I have been using for some time now. My focal image cardstock was too large and I did not want to size it down, so I just improvised and placed it on a larger card base. I stamped the flowers (first, starting with the detailed stamp, then with the background). I mounted on brown, then summer sunrise cardstocks. I tied brown grosgrain ribbon in a knot around the card base, then added a button.

  1. Make card base by trimming cardstock to 10" x 7", then score at 5"
  2. Trim orange, brown, and white cardstocks into rectangles to matte on each other.
  3. On the white cardstock, stamp the flowers and sentiment.
  4. Adhere cardstocks together.
  5. Tie brown ribbon around card base.
  6. Sew button on ribbon knot.
  7. Adhere cardstock over top of ribbon.
