Fresh Cuts Thank You Card

I was sitting at my worktable with some pieces of the Stampin' Up! Rich Razzleberry paper in front of me. Well, I just HAD to use it!!! I just LOVE that color and I know I've made a lot of cards from it but I just can't help myself. I was hoping that the more I used it the more I would get tired of it. Well, that's not happening. The more I use it the more I LOVE it!!! SO here is what I did with it.

I took out the "Fresh Cuts" set. I looked for a set that I have not used very much at all. It is my goal this year to use my sets a bit more before they retire!!! This plan would work REALLY well if I didn't have so many sets!!! LOL

This card brings in the old with the new. I started out with a half sheet of Basic Black card stock and I folded it in half. Then I added a layer of Rich Razzleberry on top of that. This piece was cut 5-3/8 x 4-1/8". On top of that I layerd a piece of Whisper White card stock that I ran through the Sizzix Big Shot using the new Stampin' Up! "Final Press" folder. It's SO pretty!!! I taped the white and Razzleberry layers together. Then I tied a piece of ribbon around it. Well, I didn't exactly tie it. I don't like doing that because the knot doesn't lay as nice. I cut the ribbon to go about 3/4" around the edges of the card. Then I taped the edges of the ribbon in place on the back of the Rich Razzleberry card stock.

I stamped my image on a piece of Whisper White card stock measuring 3" x 3-1/4". I cut the Rich Razzleberry card stock behind it to measure 3-1/8" x 3-3/8". And then I cut the Basic Black card stock to measure 3-1/4" x 3-1/2". I taped the layers together and taped it all on top of the white and ribbon.

The "thank you" came from the Holiday Blitz set. I stamped it using the Rich Razzleberry ink. I punched it out using the 1-1/4" round punch. The Razzleberry layer was punched out using the 1-3/8" punch and the black layer behind that was made using the Scallop punch. I taped that in the corner and it was done!!!

This card has several elements to it but yet it was a simple and quick card to make!!! And you know how much I LOVE to make simple and quick cards!! Give it a try, it's an easy layout to do too!!

Thank you for visiting today,
