More Thanks

    These two are takes on two cards I have done before, so I hope that you like them.   By the Tide one, I feel like is much more my color style, compared with the one I had posted previously.  Please remember to send Thank You cards out to all of your family in this season of giving  just to let them know you are thankful for all the thoughtful gifts.  I truly believe that in this world of text and email, a handmade card shows someone that they are worth your time and energy, and that still means something.

Emboss largest Very Vanilla piece, and with dauber ink edges of Very vanilla and DSP pieces. On lightest DSP Stamp in Soft Suede flower stems and then in Island Indigo stamp flower tops.  Stamp greeting in Soft Suede above flower.  Assemble the two DSP panels.  On the panel with flowers tie ribbon on lower portion. Then on Very Vanilla strip Take stamp from Lots of Thanks and just ink (so much) on the stamp with Island Indigo marker and stamp it on the left side of 2 inch strip leaving enough room to make a pennant cut.
