Thank you card by Donna

Happy Wednesday! Today I decided to use this fun stamp that comes in the Gel-a-tin stamp set called Merci. I love how graphic and fun this stamp is and how many "nice" words it has on it. I looked in my paper stash found this fun patterned paper and I decided to use this stamp with these papers to make fun "country" kind of card. It's a little different than my normal style, but I like to try everything. And, I live in South Carolina so I know what country is - trust me!

To make this card I cut a 4.25 x 5.5 piece of flowery paper. Then cut a 1 inch strip of the gingham paper, used the scalloped border punch on the bottom and adhered it to the paper. Then I tied a bow around the paper and adhered the paper to the front of a top fold card. I stamped the image on the backside of the patterned paper and inked the edges. Then I cut a slightly larger piece of paper in gingham, inked the edges and adhered the stamped image panel to the gingham panel. I adhered that panel to the card over the ribbon using thick foam dots.

Here is a close up to show the stamp detail.
