I love this simple color combo: muted Spring green and soft brown, don’t you? I was inspired by a set of Chatter Box artsy.licious brads I found on clearance at the craft store and this ribbon I’d bought ages ago at Michael’s. I used my Close to My Heart “Art Philosophy” Cricut cartridge to cut this beautiful swoopy square shape twice: once with the green cardstock and once with white cardstock. I scored the top 1/2″ of the white cardstock and adhered it to the back of this green cardstock to make a card.
Then, I inked the edges of the green card and worked on cutting out a square brown piece of cardstock. I inked the edges of the brown cardstock after making a random pattern with a Close to My Heart dotted line stamp, attached the ribbon and the fancy metal floral brad. I stuck it down to my card and then attached the stamped “Thanks” piece that I’d punched out and inked. I want to thank Barbara for giving me the Stampin’ Up! stamp set that included this “thanks” stamp! She gave me several leftover craft supplies last year and I finally used them!
I just love this brad! I’m sure you’ll see it again because I also have it in red and in black.
If there’s one thing I know, it’s that you can never have too many birthday and thank you cards on hand. This card was for a couple my husband and I had lunch with – they were a lot of fun and we had a great time together! I’m still in the process of meeting all of his friends and it’s fun when you click with a couple as if you already knew them.
I like to send as many thank you cards as I can. I used to be much better about sending cards, and I hope to get back to doing that because that’s part of who I am, and I feel good when I show gratitude and make others feel special and appreciated.
Thanks for reading my blog – your thank you card for being a reader is in the mail…. 😉Pin It
