Cards - Thank You - Stampin Up Party
I started with Mellow Moss cardstock. I stamped it with one of the Itty Bitty Backgrounds in Always Artichoke. I made it to fit a No. 6 3/4 envelope so I cut the cardstock 3.5"x 11. Placed a fold at 6.25" which left my front flap a bit short. I added a piece of parchment cardstock which had been trimmed with the Martha Stewart Daisy border punch. I added a length of Spring Moss gross grain ribbon to hide the join on the inside of the card. I stamped the greeting in Always Artichoke on the bottom right hand corner. The paper flower is attached with a green crystal brad.
On the card on the right I used striped decorative paper by Anna Griffin which I placed over the whole length of the card front. Again, I placed a length of Spring Moss to cover the join on the inside of the card. I printed the greeting on white, punched it out with 1" circle punch and then rubbed the edges with Always Artichoke ink pad. The paper flower is attached with a green crystal brad.
On the bottom card I used the same cardstock with the additional piece of parchment cardstock. I placed a square of Anna Griffin decorative paper on the left of the border punch and ribbon.
