Simple Thanks

My simple little "thanks" card took a few tries to get right (and it's almost there, LOL). I still have to get used to clean and simple cards as they seem almost too simple.

I'm putting this little card into two challenges this week.
1. Tuesday Throwdown #187: They had a tic-tac-toe challenge and I selected this combo:
    CAS + Embossing + Ribbon
2. Lawnscaping Challenge: A CAS card.

I used the "thanks" and heart shape from Lawn Fawn's Summertime Charm set.

I glued down the small ribbon to make my garland line then stamped the rainbow hearts. The hearts are embossed with super fine clear embossing powder (Ranger). I just drew in the lines and outlined the hearts. The "thanks" was stamped in jet black archival ink (Ranger).

Have a great week!

  1. Super CAS card. I think they are one of the hardest to make and you nailed this one. Now don't go back and add a bow or buttons or bling, which is what I'd be tempted to do. Self control is called for with CAS (Can't Add Stuff). Thanks for sharing it with us at Tuesday Throwdown, Good Luck, and come back and play again soon.
