I was recently given some spare ribbon samples that someone didn’t need, so I made her a thank you card.
I often hear “You’re always looking for an excuse to make someone a card,” and that’s totally right! While all four of the ribbon spools are cute and useable, none of them seemed quite right for my “thank you card.” I ended up using the wrong side of the red gingham “True Love” ribbon to make a nice thank you card for my sister-in-law.
She loved the cheerful card and asked me how I did the background. I figured it would be described best with a video, so I made a quick demo with my Flip camcorder:
“Hi” from Cosmo Cricket – Garden Variety Elements / 4 red brads from Jo-Ann Craft Essentials / 12″ x 12″ white core red cardstock / Sizzix embossing folder / Conqueror Diamond White 118.3# cardstock
