Heartfelt Blooms, 2018 Sale a Bration, Thank You Card

When I first saw the Sale a Bration catalog, I knew this was the set I wanted to get.  I thought this flower bouquet was so pretty and versatile.  The set comes with 3 sets of words but you can grab some words from another set to create birthday cards and Mother's Day cards as well. 

I opted to use a "Thank you" from the set.  I found this fun card on Pinterest.  You can see the original here.  I did change it.  I used Pool Party for all my colors because that was the color ribbon I had.  I don't have many ribbons, I don't use them enough and end up with lots of retired ribbon.  

So to make this card I used a folded half-sheet of Pool Party for the base.  On top of that I used a 1-1/4" x 5-1/4" piece of the new "Picture Perfect Party" 6" x 6" Decorative Series Paper (DSP).  I cut my Whisper White piece 2-3/4" x 5-1/4".  I ran some snail along the back right side of the Whisper White piece and attached the DSP so the piece was 4" x 5-1/4".  Or you can take a piece of Whisper White and cut it 4" x 5-1/4" and layer your pieces on top.  Actually that is a better way to go because the ribbon tends to bend the paper a bit.

After getting my piece to measure 4" x 5-1/4", I cut a piece of ribbon about 7" and taped the ends on the backside.  I slipped the ribbon under the piece I taped down and tied a bow. I cut the ribbon off and trimmed up the edges. I don't have a measurement for that because I used the ribbon directly from the spool to tie the knot.  

I stamped the words on a scrap piece of Whisper White card stock and die cut it with the stitched oval die.  At the same time I die cut a scalloped oval for the layer.  I taped those two pieces together and set them in place using Dimensionals. I taped the piece to the card base and that was it!

Super easy and such a beautiful card.  Other than my card being a little different in color, I did use different ribbon and I placed the words a little higher on the card.  It's a fun card to make, give it a try!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
