I Thank You Now

I think this saying is so true! I think I need to make a lot of these cards, because I can think of several people that I should send one to! I really wanted some pretty paper to pair this stamp with. This paper is from K&Co (Wild Saffron Collection). If you scroll through my blog, if you look closely, you'll see that I've used this paper a lot... but it is just SO beautiful! There isn't one page that I don't like!

The butterfly is an embellishment that is part of the same collection. It has so much dimension and is super sparkly! (By the way, I found this collection at Michaels!)

I used my new Nestabilities (from Paper Pretties) to create a scalloped "cut out" in my printed paper. Then I stamped the sentiment onto Shimmery White CS and cut and embossed a rectangle with another die. To create the curved edge, I took a bowl, traced it on one edge and trimmed. All of the edges are distressed with my Heidi Swap distressing tool and inked with Sahara Sand ink.

I "embossed" tiny circles onto the curved edge by pressing my paper in between my Crop-a-dile. I found out this little trick on a blog I recently discovered (KWernerDesigns). It's AWESOME! You should go take a peek!

I love this stamp by Rubber Soul! It's only one stamp, but it is created so that you can stamp your sentiment outside AND inside of your card. Just ink up the words you want to stamp and leave the other ones bare.

I added copper eyelets to the outside and inside of the card and added some saffron colored ribbon. I just am so happy with how this card turned out! Hope you like it too!
