Fresh Thanks!


Hello there!  Today's card inspiration is from the new Freshly Made Sketch #17.  I have not been in the craft room in a few days, and wanted to do a challenge card.  I also need more thank you cards for Christmas and Birthday gifts, so I thought that this sketch would be perfect, and would mail easily.






The mail panel has the beautiful new Everyday Enchantment DSP from the upcoming SAB catalog, and can be yours free with a $50 purchase!  This paper is so versatile, I pulled out the two sheets that had only the lucky limeade and pool party colors.  The bird was cut from the retired birds & blooms sizzix die.  I layered the bird on a tag from lots of tags sizzix die set.  A large oval of naturals ivory was punched and stamped in pool party with the floral stamp from Fresh Vintage stamp set, also a SAB item.


My coordinating stripe was made using the new pool party seam binding ribbon.  The ribbon was adhered to a piece of pool party cardstock and was run through the big shot in the stripes EF.  The look you get is similar to the new pleated ribbon, but without the bulk.


The Thanks stamp is from the Rue Des Fleurs stamp set and is stamped in lucky limeade.  Some basic pearls underline the Thanks and fills in the bird's eye.  This will fit nicely in a regular envelope and requires no extra postage AND is easy enough to make five or six no problem.  Remember you can get all these supplies and more by shopping 24/7 at my ONLINE STORE.  I hope you were inspired today, enjoy!

Paper:  Everyday Enchantment DSP, pool party, lucky limeade
